As the principal dentist and founder of Jiva Dental it is my responsibility and honor to look after our patients and my team.
It is humbling that patients choose to come to us to help them achieve amazing smiles, confidence and great dental health.
At the practice, we have created a community of like-minded patients who value the expertise and dentistry we provide. As a team, we all strive to do our best for each individual patient.
I think Jiva is so special because we try every day to make it a calm and relaxing place to be. I wanted to create a practice that does not look, feel or smell like a dentist’s. Everyone here is really down to earth, approachable and professional. I’m sure our patients would agree!
My main area of interest is cosmetic dentistry and have been personally trained by some of the leading experts in the field from the USA and the UK. I have also trained in sedation and enjoy working with nervous patients, helping them through their journey. As a certified Invisalign practioner I have helped 100’s of patients achieve the smile of their dreams! In fact, my love for Invisalign has led to me undergoing treatment myself. In 2007, I gained a Certificate in Restorative Dentistry from the renowned Eastman Dental Institute (UCL). I have also written for and appeared in the British Dental Journal and have been a speaker at the British Dental Conference.
My passions (apart from dentistry!) include my family, travel, martial arts, bouldering, skiing, my guitars and music. I also love the theatre and good food (eating and cooking!).
BDS (Manchester 1989)
In establishing Seddon Dental Implants, I looked to put my patients at the focus of my care.
I have worked hard to build a team who would help me offer this patient-first approach, taking time to listen to people and understand the problems their teeth give them in their daily lives.
I always try to explain what I see in clear and simple language, then discuss a range of treatment options, so that my patients can use this information to make the best-informed choices for their mouth.
I love working at Jiva Dental because the team are so helpful, warm and inviting and the practice is beautiful. Patients always praise the calm environment and team, who are very welcoming and caring towards them.
My small, personal and supportive implant team explain all treatment options and ensure patients’ needs are truly understood and met at every stage. I can also offer intravenous sedation, making implant treatment a more relaxing and positive experience.
I have lectured in the UK and Europe, published papers in dental publications, and clinically mentor fellow dentists.
My hobbies are teeth! I also love spending time with my wife and twin boys, and skiing.
After working as a dental receptionist for over a year, I knew that this is what I wanted to do as a career and I started working at Jiva Dental in January 2021.
Jiva Dental is a very interesting and eventful practice to work at, watching patients faces light up when we are able to give them their dream smile. All the patients and members of staff are what makes Jiva the kind and caring practice that it is. I cant wait to see where my journey at Jiva will take me in future.
I enjoy cooking, sending time with my family and friends and also drawing in my free time after work.
