Bsc(Hons) BDS MFDS (Edin)
Associate Dental Surgeon
Philippa moved to the area in 2008 when her husband’s work brought them to the area. Since then, she has fallen in love with Rutland!
Having first qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2004, Philippa realised that she had further aspirations and re-trained as a Dentist, on a Graduate Entry Programme, at Kings College London. She qualified in 2010 with a keen interest in oral surgery and general dentistry. She went on to complete a Vocational Training year in Leicester and then three years in hospital jobs in Northampton and Peterborough in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. During this time, she became competent in a wide range of oral surgical procedures and enjoyed perfecting the aesthetics of suturing complex wounds or the removal of skin cancers and their reconstruction thereafter. She found this very satisfying and further developed her keen eye for aesthetics.
Philippa has completed many further training courses and has completed the Diploma of Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS) in Edinburgh, as well as Combined Facial Aesthetics Training (to include anti-ageing treatments using botulinum toxin type A and dermal fillers) and appreciates the benefits that these can bring to patients, both aesthetically and functionally. She has also completed training for Enlighten Evolution Whitening.
Having spent the last five years in general practice, Philippa is able to provide a host of routine and complex treatments and enjoys aesthetic dentistry and giving people confidence and something to smile about.
Philippa enjoys working in the local community and believes in treating patients in a friendly, calm and caring manner. She provides options in an honest and open fashion and always hopes that patients will feel at ease, and under no pressure, when under her care. She enjoys treating nervous patients and practices minimally invasive dentistry wherever possible.
When not in practice, Philippa enjoys spending time with her two young children and husband. Among other things, she enjoys exercise and outdoor pursuits, interior design, sewing and cookery, and dabbling in the garden!
