Dr Ellie Bergin
Qualifications: B.D.S. (V.U. Manc), Certificate in Dental Implantology
GDC number: 76585
I joined the practice in 2005 and became a partner in 2014. I really enjoy the opportunity to provide high quality dentistry in a wonderfully supportive and friendly environment which allows me to do my very best for our patients.
I feel very privileged to be a dentist. In what other profession could I be able to combine artistic creativity with the ability to help others either by making them feel better about the appearance of their smile, helping them enjoy their food more or simply relieving someone from discomfort?
I have developed a strong interest in using tooth coloured bonded materials to create a new smile or refurbish and re-build very worn mouths with a no drilling approach. It is incredible to be able to help rejuvenate what can be decades of wear and tear with such a gentle minimal technique often in only one or two sessions.
I have been restoring dental implants since 2005 and never ceased to be amazed by the trans-formative positive impact they can have on our patients lives and sense of well being. In 2012-13 I completed an 18 month postgraduate diploma in Dental Implantology and have since then also been providing the surgical placement of implants to my patients.
A well as general practice, my other special interests include cosmetic dentistry, single visit ceramic onlays or crowns, and root canal treatments. I also treat snoring, headaches and bite disorders such as tooth grinding/clenching.
Dentistry allowed me to discovered a passion for teaching. Dental students and Qualified Dentists can often be found observing (only with my patients consent) during clinical mentoring sessions.
I was a Clinical lecturer for 9 years Barts and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry and now enjoy teaching one day a week at the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences King’s College London.
