What makes us different?
Glenn has a strong sense of ethical duty to provide affordable and accessible Oral Surgery to his patients in a relaxed environment. He circumvented the normal route of Specialists in setting up their own practice, and decided to locum by invitation at existing dental practices where he can use their facilities and staff thereby maintaining a more affordable standard of care.
Glenn's calm demeanour and even-tempered nature lends itself well to orthodontic patients. Being a Specialist with a solid background in dentistry, Glenn has a sound working knowledge of tooth morphology, thus being able to perform oral surgery in a decisive and expedient manner with minimal complications.
Glenn is able to offer conscious sedation and nitrous oxide and has visiting rights to Crest Hospital in order to offer general anaesthetic facilities if required. His local anaesthetic delivery technique has been reported as being excellent with minimal discomfort to the patient.
