Deborah Lipman

BChD MFDS RCS

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.
