Samuel Ofori-Attah

Samuel Ofori-Attah

BDS Bristol 2010

I have worked in the NHS, private practice and the hospital sector in London and East England and have found this to be a very rewarding experience. My belief is in providing high quality general dentistry to create a strong basis for a healthy mouth, which in turn allows you to speak, smile, eat and chew with confidence. I pride myself in my patient focus, constantly striving to ensure that you feel listened to and receive information to allow you to make the right choice for yourself. 

Experience has shown me how I enjoy providing treatment and care to my patients, whether it is the simplest of preventative dentistry to the more complex restoration of teeth. Tooth coloured fillings and crowns are a particular area I enjoy delivering to patients and also teeth whitening where suitable and beneficial to patients. 

I constantly keep myself abreast of developments in dentistry to be able to advise my patients on the best course for their particular dental goals. The main areas of interest being oral surgery, patients with dental anxiety, orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry procedures. 

My personal passions are music and sport, both as a participant and an observer. In particular, the guitar, running and rugby. My other love is scriptwriting for screen and theatre.
