Dentists & Services
The practice has four qualified dentists that offer a range of services, some of which are listed below.
Ian Hooper - Lesley Hooper - Victoria Kenny - Dr Rash Naseri
Ian Hooper BDS Edin
Qualified in 1978, Ian established the dental surgery in 1979. His dental specialities include: Crown & Bridge Work, Veneers, Nervous Patients (sedation), Cosmetic Work & Dentures. He works largely independently through Denplan, with children and patients exempt from the NHS.
Leslie Hooper BDS Edin
Qualified in 1973, Leslie worked at dental surgeries in Cathedral Road and St Mary Street before joining the practice in 1980. Along with all general dentistry, Leslie specialises in Crown & Bridge Work and works largely independently.
Tomos Crandon BDS Wales
Tomos qualified in 2002 and joined the practice. He is Welsh speaking and specialises in all general dentistry. He works largely under the NHS, but also provides private cosmetic work.
We offer an in-surgery tooth whitening service which takes approx 1 hour.
We also offer home tooth whitening which consists of a mouth guard worn overnight or for a few hours a day.
We are now able to provide Procera Crowns, which are constructed completely out of ceramic, with no metal content. These have the most life-like characteristics yet available. They are not only as strong as a metal crown but also have a 5 year guarantee.
We can construct veneers so thin that we hardly have to alter the patients’ teeth to accommodate them. This allows for very conservative and pain free dentistry. They also very closely match the physical properties of a natural tooth.
We provide sedation for those patients who are over-anxious or phobic. This consists of two alternatives:
1. A powerful injection to produce a state of relaxation
2. Gas & air (happy gas) which the patient breathes in during treatment
We take sterilisation very seriously at the surgery. We have a dedicated sterilisation room and use only the latest German hand pieces, which allow for maximum sterilisation, and make full use of disposables. We also undertake a programme of continuous training and education to ensure we provide the ultimate in dental care.
