I qualified in Ukraine in 2000 and registered with the GDC 2008.

While practicing dentistry I realised that most dental and gum problems can be prevented. So I have dedicated myself to preventative dentistry and in particular dental hygiene for the last 6 years.

I absolutely love my role and the changes that my work brings into people’s life. May I welcome you here to our lovely BDS practice.
