When the Practice was founded in 1977 Brian established the principles of prevention and has always employed a Dental Hygienist and Dental Health Educator.
In the early 80ís Brianís concern turned to Holistic Dentistry and the effects of materials that were currently being used and became Amalgam free in 1985. With the advancement of Cosmetic Dentistry as well as Adhesive Dentistry Brian saw the opportunity to combine non-toxic materials with less tooth destruction (non-reduction veneers) etc.
Brian has attended most of the up to date
courses and conferences on Cosmetic Dentistry and acted as editor
on programs for Dental T.Vwhich involved most of the worlds leading
Brian has lectured at National level and
continues to do so on the subject of Holistic Dentistry and the safety
precautions that can be taken to protect the Dentist, Staff and of
course the patients.
Brian now accepts new patients often referred
by Doctors, Naturopaths, Homeopaths, Nutrionists and other dentists
to help diagnose potential toxicity problems. He also enjoys Cosmetic
dentistry including Whitening as this a major part of Holistic Dentistry
by making patientís feel better about themselves and the huge boost in their self esteem. A strong motivation to improve their dental health.
With the advancement of Dental technology,
Brianís enthusiasm for his style of Dentistry has grown. In 1977 Brian never realized that the future of Dentistry could profoundly improve the quality of many patientís lives.
