As the principal dentist and founder of Jiva Dental it is my responsibility and honour 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.
GDC No. 271657
I truly love seeing my patient’s oral health, wellbeing and confidence improve as a result of the dental treatments I provide for them here at Jiva.
It is important to me that my surgery is always a relaxed environment where my patients are met with an approachable and friendly face. I like to take my time with each patient to put their concerns and anxieties aside, and work with them to give them a healthy mouth and amazing smile.
I qualified from King’s College London in 2017 and have been providing high quality dental treatment since. I am also a certified Invisalign practitioner and thoroughly enjoy helping my patients achieve a smile they’re proud to show off!
My other special interest lies in facial aesthetics. I have completed a postgraduate Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine and have been trained by world-renowned aesthetic doctors. I now enjoy running my weekly facial aesthetics clinic at Jiva, where I provide natural and subtle treatments to help our patients look refreshed and and feel the best version of themselves.
I joined Jiva Dental in July 2019 and thoroughly enjoy being part of the team here. We care so much about our patients and are committed to making every one of our patient’s dental experiences here a pleasant one.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy keeping fit, travelling to sunny destinations and baking. I also love spending any spare time I have in the company of my wonderful family and friends! '
Dip Dent Hygiene (London 2016)
GDC reg no. 265988
I qualified as a dental hygienist from Eastman Dental Hospital (UCLH) in 2016 and have worked in a number of different practices across London gaining experience in both the public sector and private practice.
I have always had a passion for dentistry, particularly in the prevention of gum disease and the promotion of good oral health. I am committed to my work and to every single patient who walks through the door at Jiva Dental. Being a dental hygienist is highly rewarding and I love helping people find their smiles and confidence again.
I place great importance in delivering high quality treatment as well as providing a great experience for patients. Also, my empathetic approach and caring nature ensures nervous patients feel comfortable and relaxed as they receive their dental treatment.
I joined Jiva Dental in October 2020 and already love being part of this exciting, friendly team. I look forward to growing with their vision and getting to know all of my patients.
My interests and hobbies include cooking, cycling, country walks and spending time with my wonderful family and friends.
National Diploma in Dental Nursing NEBDN (2000)
GDC reg no: 158632
I absolutely love what I do! I’ve been dental nursing for 24 years and find it a very rewarding and fulfilling job, unlike any other and of course, there's the joy of caring for patients and helping them smile again.
Working at Jiva every day holds something new and exciting - no two days are the same. Being a dental nurse allows me to have so many wonderful moments.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, travelling but most of all spending time with my son.
After 22 years of looking after children running a child-minding business, I felt it was time to use my nurturing skills in another area. I love meeting new people and getting to know them.
I think Jiva is special because it doesn't feel like you're at the dentist. It has a calmness about it and I believe our patients benefit from this.
In my spare time I love to cycle, bake with my daughters and care for the animals I have at home.
