We pride ourselves on keeping a realistic balance between delivering the best results and treatment costs and firmly believe that the best value dentistry isn’t necessarily the cheapest but, instead, is the best combination of cost, quality and the commitment and professionalism of the team delivering it.

Teodora Ruscheva (Teddy)

Principal Dentist

GDC Number: 178933

I am Teddy and I qualified as a dentist in 2006. I have been working in different practices since then, before I made the step to buy my own practice.

My main passion is in the field of cosmetic dentistry, but I do enjoy every aspect of the dental practice. I have completed numerous postgraduate courses and really enjoy learning new techniques and using modern technology in the constantly progressing dental world. I listen to my patients’ needs and concerns and always give my best to achieve the most suitable outcome for everyone.

I like spending time with my family and I have two daughters, who keep me occupied outside dentistry. When I have time, I would listen to music and read books.
