Through his years of dental practice, he has led countless anxious patients on their journey to become confident and regular dental attenders. He states, “Our perceptions of dentistry can be tainted by unpleasant past experiences, or fear of the unknown. However, it is my duty to understand your concerns and change these perceptions by creating new positive experiences using modern techniques and a gentle approach.”
Edmund has a special interest in periodontics, the treatment of gum conditions, as well as the placement and restoration of dental implants. He also enjoys treating children of all ages.
Outside of dentistry, Edmund enjoys leading an active lifestyle, including the occasional game of squash. He also has an interest in coffee making and understanding the interrelations between coffee origins, traits and brewing methods.
