Samantha Koch


I qualified from the University of Sheffield in 2012 with BDS and I completed my Dental Foundation training in Reading, where I gained a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge. I am interested in all aspects of dentistry and I am also experienced in treating children and nervous patients.

Charlotte graduated from the University of Leeds in 2012. After completing her initial training she went on to develop further skills with a post at Luton and Dunstable Hospital in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Charlotte was awarded Membership to the Royal College of Surgeons in 2014. Now completing a Masters in Restorative Dental Practice at the Eastman Dental Institute, Charlotte aims to provide a high standard of dental care in a relaxed, friendly and calm atmosphere, keeping in touch with current techniques through regular continuing development courses. Charlotte also volunteers her time with help those who do not have access to regular dental care, working with the Dental Wellness Trust and Crisis at Christmas.

One of the most rewarding aspects of her career has been the care of nervous and anxious patients.

Alison Harley

BDS 1981 MSc & Specialist List Periodontology

I qualified from The Royal Dental Hospital, London, in 1981 and after a year in general practice went on to take a masters degree in Periodontology. I then spent three years working in Nigeria before returning to UK to work in practice. I am on the specialist list as a periodontist and currently work as a specialist in practice. I also spend one day a week teaching undergraduates and postgraduates at Kings in the Department of Periodontology.


Deborah Lipman


I qualified from Leeds Dental Institute in 2001, and following a vocational training year in Faringdon, went on to work in general practice in Watlington, South Oxfordshire for 16 years. During this time, the main joy for me was building up long-term relationships with my patients, in a relaxed environment and with a gentle manner.

I enjoy practising all aspects of dentistry, and I have always kept up to date with learning. In 2007, I undertook a postgraduate course, obtaining membership to The Royal College of Surgeons in England.

Away from work, I am married and kept busy with three lively children. In my spare time, my interests are running, swimming and travelling.
