Our surgery has been open for over 30 years. In that time we’ve helped thousands of people look after their teeth and restore their smile.

We’re pleased to say our patients stay with us for the long term. They often recommend the practice to friends and family. In fact, we still treat people who had some of our very first appointments.

We put our success down to a commitment to learning. The team trains regularly to update their skills and offer our patients the very best in dental treatments.

We also want your visit to be as stress free as possible. Which is why we go to great lengths to make sure you fully understand your treatment.

We welcome referrals from local dental practices for all of our services and pride ourselves on the strong relationships we have built with our referring dentists.

Interests: Periodontics (gum disease), Prosthodontics (rebuilding teeth), Oral surgery, anxious patients

Brett is our dentist with a particular interest in gum problems and how to keep gums healthy and heads up our experienced Gum Health team.

Brett qualified as a dentist in 1988 and has an impressive career as both a surgeon and a general dentist. His surgical skills are extensive and he worked as a Registrar in maxillofacial and Oral Surgery before taking the decision to devote his time to helping patients in general practice. His passion for surgery has helped him with management of challenging gum problems and also extensive tooth loss, as Brett is vastly experienced in replacing dentures with implants, or alternatively placing only a few implants to help stabilise troublesome full arch dentures. Brett is also an advocate of socket preservation, a technique which helps patients maintain one and shape in areas where they are having tooth extractions. There isn’t much Brett hasn’t studied in great depth, but what is most striking about Brett is his primary focus is always the patient, what they want or need, and how his skills can be used to help them achieve it.

For particularly nervous patients, Brett’s gentleness and vast experience prove a winning combination and many patients find their confidence in visiting the dentist returns once they’ve met him.

We are particularly excited to be working with Brett to increase our provision for dementia patients or those with associated concerns both at homes and in care centres.

Qualifications

Brett is currently enrolled on the Periodontics Masterclass and is a speaker at the dentist and patient education events held at McInerney Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry.

Peter Greenhalgh – Operations Director

Peter Greenhalgh Peter Greenhalgh is equally passionate about dentistry and the sea; when he’s not running the practice he races grand prix racing yachts at the cutting edge of the sport, a role suited to his resilience and cheerfulness, and he’s not a half bad sailor either (coming from a family of top level racers probably helps).

Peter knows the best patient experiences require the same kind of seamless teamwork that wins races, and this doesn’t just happen, it takes strategy and tactics, which happen to be his areas of expertise. He can’t bear inefficiency, bad manners and poor timekeeping and so when you see him, expect the very highest standard of care not only for your teeth, but for you as a human being.
