Introducing Our New Principal Dentist
It is difficult to imagine that it has been almost 16 years since Runèl and I moved to Wiltshire to take over the Practice from the previous owner, Dr Michael Allen. It has truly been a blessing and it is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from dentistry. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your dental needs through the years.
