Meet the Team


Dentist: Nishani Jayasuriya BDS GDC 82268

I qualified in 2003 at the Royal London Hospital (Whitechapel) and I have been an associate at the practice for 13 years and gained Denplan Excel Accreditation in 2014.

I had the pleasure of taking over the practice from Neil Gaubert, and became the practice owner and principal dentist in March 2016.

I would like to continue the principles of long term preventive family dentistry while always looking for new ways to improve the health and appearance of a smile.

I strive to provide safe, caring and good quality dental health care.

Our entire team aim to ensure that all patients are treated with the same courtesy that I and the team would wish for ourselves. Your welfare is at the core of the practice; the highest standard of professionalism and care is aimed for at all times.

I strive to be gentle always, and especially if patients are nervous, I am happy to explain the procedure step by step to ensure that the patients are relaxed during treatment, and will only proceed if you are entirely comfortable.
