Maslinda graduated in Singapore in 1997 and has worked exclusively in endodontics since gaining her master’s degree at Guy's Hospital in 2002. She is happy to accept all endodontic referrals, and particularly enjoys the challenge of difficult cases, re-treatments and endodontic surgery. In 2015 Maslinda also gained an additional qualification, PGCert in Dental Sedation and Pain Management, enabling her to provide intravenous sedation for patients undergoing treatments with other clinicians at Stricklands.

She also enjoys reading, running (having completed two marathons and several half marathons) and is a keen baker – much to the delight of the rest of the practice team who are always happy to sample her wares!
Maslinda Mohamad, our endodontic dentist, limits her practice exclusively to root canal treatment and uses an advanced dental microscope for improved diagnosis, accuracy and efficacy. This, coupled with the most up-to-date reciprocating file systems and intra-osseous anaesthesia, means that root canal treatment can be comfortable and effortless for your patient.

Our paediatric specialist, Christina Tatsi, has more than 10 years’ experience in the dental care of children.
Her holistic approach to dental care focuses on the child and their individual needs. Dental treatment needs to be delivered with empathy in order to build a positive attitude towards dentistry in the future. The developing dentition and the risk of caries are also important factors in the decision-making process. Prevention is tailor-made in order to fit the child's routine in partnership with the parent(s)/guardian(s).
Christina qualified in 2001 in Greece where she worked for two years. She completed her three-year specialist training in 2006 at the Leeds Dental Institute, the only institute in Europe eligible for the fellowship of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada, which she obtained in 2007.

She has completed a PhD research degree, investigating the prevention of early caries in orthodontic patients.
