Ronnie developed his knowledge in dentistry by completing his MJDF at the Royal College of Surgeons, from here he progressed his clinical knowledge and skills by completing the certificate in Advanced Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry and Advanced Endodontics.

He now completed his post graduate certificate in Dental Implants which has allowed him to continue his passion to treat patients that require multi-disciplinary treatments. This has now allowed Ronnie to treat and complete over 2000 cases involving extractions, root canal treatments and dental implants and now mainly focuses on referral work from dentist using the most up to date and state of the art dental equipment.

He has the unique dual skill to either save and prolong a tooth health with root canal treatment or replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. This allows patients to see the same dentist and avoid having to see multiple dentists through their course of treatment.

He also held a teaching position at Kings College Hospital for over 7 years, developing and helping undergraduates develop their dental passion and skills.

“Dentistry is my passion – this is evident from when you first meet me and right throughout my work. My drive comes from being able to provide good quality dentistry to my loyal patient base while delivering high results which can be life changing. Being a dental phobic myself I have a unique understanding for nervous patients.

My promise to patients is the idea of accessibility accessible ensuring patients can have contact prior and AFTER treatment giving patients that extra reassurance should they need help short or long term. I will always go that extra mile to ensure my patients are comfortable, fully informed of their treatment and have the ability to have some control.

Outside of dentistry I am a keen sports fan, enjoying boxing, golf and football to name . I thoroughly enjoy the transition from my high energy hobbies to the delicate art of delivery of dentistry!”
