Dr Simone Small
I am passionate about my work as a dentist. I really enjoy working with my patients to develop their smiles. I also enjoy improving a child’s confidence so that they return happily on subsequent visits.
I trained at Guy’s Hospital, London.
After I graduated I worked within hospital dentistry at Guy’s, St. Albans and Edgware General.
It was in these jobs that I developed different skills that I use within my dental practice today. However, it was always my ambition to open my own surgery.
I trained as a dental teacher following a postgraduate qualification and in addition to working as a Educational Supervisor training dentists, I have an active role within Health Education England
In 1992 together with my brother, Christian, I proudly opened our surgery. We are delighted to have developed an environment which allows us to offer our patients high quality dental care.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my Pekingese dogs, sometimes taking them to dog shows including Crufts. I also enjoy returning to my former hobby of tap dancing.
Dr Christian Small
As a dentist, I particularly enjoy helping patients to have the confidence to smile again.
I qualified from Guy’s Hospital, London and then developed my career as a Community Dental Officer based in Harrow and Central London. I treated children and adults with additional needs and these skills are useful in my dental work today.
I trained as a dental teacher following a postgraduate qualification in 2017 and, in addition to working as an Educational Supervisor training dentists, I have an active role within Health Education England.
I started the surgery in 1992 with my sister, Simone because we wanted to have the opportunity to deliver high quality dental care to the whole family. Since then I have been proud to be able to make a difference to my patients’ dental health.
I am a very keen gardener and can often be found at my allotment. I enjoy the outdoors and walking with my minature schnauzer dog.
I trained as a dental hygienist and therapist at Kings Hospital, London.
Some patients may remember me from when I used to be at the practice several years ago as a dental nurse. After my hospital training it has been lovely to come back as a hygienist and be able to care for patients.
My role as a hygienist is to help people improve their gums to try and prevent further problems. Once your treatment has been planned by one of the dentists I can perform gum treatments that aim to stabilise gum disease. I am also available if you would like to have regular cleaning and polishing and can provide oral hygiene advice. I can remove plaque and calculus that is often difficult to remove by brushing and flossing yourself. It can also help improve your confidence when you have a cleaner, fresher mouth.
During my spare time I enjoy walking and Pilates.
I have been working at the surgery since 1994. I am a qualified Dental Nurse holding the National Certificate of Dental Nursing. When I am not at the surgery I enjoy spending time looking after my horse.
I joined the team in 2005 and qualified from City and Guilds in 2007 to become a qualified dental nurse. I enjoy going to the cinema and travelling.
I joined the dental team in 2016 as a trainee dental nurse. I completed the NEBDN National Diploma in Dental Nursing in 2017 and enjoy my role at the practice. I am passionate about cooking and in my spare time I enjoy trying out new recipes. I also love going for a workout at the gym.
I joined the practice in 2011 and deal with the day to day administration at the practice, working in the office. You will sometimes see me on reception where I enjoy interacting with our patients.
Away from the practice I enjoy reading, going to the cinema, socialising and family holidays
