Dr Simon Allen
BDS (Lond) - GDC number 54487
It is rare to be in a position to be able to review success and longevity in your own dental work over more than 30 years.
Clinically mentored by partners Phillip Maxwell-Stephens and Michael Jones from the outset, Simon has been providing private dental treatment ranging from simple fillings to full mouth reconstructions on both natural teeth and titanium implants for 32 and 12 years respectively.
'My greatest satisfaction has been to take dentally phobic patients through dental procedures via gentle techniques and clear explanations and to see the resultant improvement in their self confidence'. He continues:
'I feel so lucky to be a continuing part of a very special and dynamic dental centre and to have seen the growth of aesthetic dentistry encompassing fields which have always interested me: 'form, design and colour'.
Simon works 4-handed - ie with close support nursing, and has special interests in tooth wear and the decision making between keeping teeth and the placement of implants.
His external interests include: art (incl drawing, photography and watercolour), music, (including guitar playing), architecture, cinema, food and wine.
Simon lives in Hampshire with his wife, Anne, and their children: Giles and Elspeth.They also own a cottage, which may be rented, in the Lot Valley in Southern France.
Simon invites patients to bring along their favourite CD's or DVD's for longer appointments!
