Dr Simon Lam qualified in 1984 at the University of Dundee. With 34 years of experience working in Hertfordshire, patients can experience first-class dentistry with Dr Simon Lam. His relaxed and informal approach immediately puts all his patients at ease.

Dr Lam has undertaken extensive postgraduate training, both in the fields of cosmetic dentistry and facial rejuvenation.

The present practice is the fourth dental practice Dr Lam has set up in Hertfordshire. All the practices are in villages that have never had a dental practice before. It is certainly a concept that is unique in Hertfordshire.

Dr Lam was also made aware by one of his patients of the total lack of dental care to children living in the slums outside Calcutta in India. Having raised enough funds from patients and friends, Dr Lam has organised three separate trips to India since 2006. With the help of his dental nurses, they treated 1200 children and carried out much restorative work for them.

In 2006, Dr Lam was honoured by the Rotarians in UK and was named a ‘Paul Harris Fellow’, the highest recognition Rotarians can give to an individual within the Rotary movement.

In the last five years, Dr Lam has also been involved in training students who will be working in remote places on providing emergency dental care where there may not be a dentist nearby.
