The other team members
Dr N.Sridhar Rao
Sridhar is a very experienced general dentist who has a special interest in treating patients who have periodontal (gum) disease. We can all suffer from this at some time in our lives and now we can help patients within our practice rather then referring them to Edinburgh for this specialised treatment.
He other skill is in the field of endodontics- root canal treatment. This is where the nerve of the tooth dies off and causes an abcess. The treatment demands great skill to achieve a long lasting result and he is also able to re-treat previously root treated teeth to prolong their lifespan.
For both of these treatments, we welcome patients from outside of the practice who may wish to attend for just this specific work and then return to their own dentist.
Sridhar has previously worked both in practice and in a university in India where he rose to be a professor, heavily involved with teaching dental students. You will see this form the way in which he explains everything and his very friendly,gentle manner.
Dr Maya Robbie BDS
Maya is a very experienced dentist who has worked both in Community Dentistry and General Practice for many years and hasjoined us to work alongside Alan, our principal, enabling us to allow patients to access quicker appointments and maintain the level of service which our patients continue to expect.
Maya is a very gentle, caring dentist and with a family of her own, she fully understands how younger patients should be treated. They are our patients of tomorrow.
