Associate Dentist

I graduated from University of Birmingham in 2016, and completed my Dental Foundation Training in Hertfordshire. I then moved onto further training in Peterborough Hospital in the Oral Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) department where I carried out complex oral surgical procedures and dealt with facial trauma. Here, I gained a remarkable amount of knowledge and skills working alongside exceptional OMFS Consultants. I now work in general practice and am working towards my Postgraduate Diploma in Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry. I love to get to know my patients and always do my best to make them feel comfortable. Outside of work, my interests include cycling, bouldering, badminton and gardening.

Dr Jacqueline Coomar

BDS, PG-Cert Dental Sedation (distinction) and Dental Education (distinction), Tier 2 Paediatrics (pending)

I graduated from the University if Birmingham in 2012. After completing my foundation year, I worked as a oral and maxillofacial senior house officer for a year, growing my competence in extracting complex teeth. Utilising these skills, I then volunteered for the Mercy Ships hospital ship in Madagascar for 8 weeks, providing free restorative and extractions- an unforgettable experience! Following this, I have worked in NHS and private general dental practices and in the Community Dental Services (since 2015). Working in the latter,the floods has fostered my skills in treating anxious patients, children and patients with special care needs. I am passionate about helping anxious patients overcome their dental fears and I am qualified in intravenous sedation, a great option for those who are severely anxious. Furthermore, I thoroughly enjoy providing eMax onlays and crowns, whitening and composite bonding, to increase my patients' confidence.

In my free time, I enjoy the creative arts and exploring the UK and beyond with my husband and cockapoo, Bailey.


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.
