Having certified as an Invisalign practitioner 10 years ago I have helped 100’s of patients achieve the smile of their dreams and fitted over 30,000 aligners! In fact, my love for Invisalign has led to me undergoing treatment myself so have first hand experience of what treatment entails. I am passionate about helping our patients achieve their vision for their smile and will always try to find a solution.
Being one of the inaugural members of the MiSmile network, we have long-standing relationship with Invisalign, having access to the latest clinical developments and innovations, as well as training, support and advice, ensuring the treatment we provide is always the most advanced, even for the most complex of cases.
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.
BDS (Birmingham 2007)

I love my job and I gain a real sense of fulfilment watching someone go from being completely anxious about their treatment to coming in every time and greeting me with a smile. Nothing quite compares to transforming someone’s smile and seeing the happiness it brings them.
We take the time out to really get to know ‘you’ and not just your teeth. Every single team member genuinely cares and I spend every day working with people who make me laugh!
I qualified from the University of Birmingham in 2007 with a distinction in clinical dentistry. Since then I have been providing high quality dental treatment in London and Surrey and have also been involved in the training of newly qualified dentists.
I believe passionately in the value of continuing education and have completed many postgraduate courses, including training in aesthetic dentistry, minimally invasive dentistry and Invisalign clear braces.
My special interest in root canal treatments has led to a Master’s Degree in Endodontics at the Eastman Dental Institute (UCL, London) for which I was awarded a distinction. My strong commitment to continual professional development allows me to offer the highest standard of care to my patients. In 2009, I passed the Royal College of Surgeons’ MJDF examinations.
Outside of dentistry my two young children keep me busy and when I’m not running around after them I love to spend my time unwinding with a book. I’m a self-confessed ‘foodie’ and never miss the chance to try a new cuisine! I feel happiest when socialising with friends and family and have a real passion for interior design.
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.

In my spare time I enjoy horse riding, snowboarding, reading and holidaying somewhere hot.
