Dentist Profiles
Robyn Hughes I returned to England in 1989 having lived and worked in the West Indies with Pete. He and I set up Cheriton Dental Practice, which has changed over time to become a large modern practice with great staff. Nobody likes visiting the dentist, but it is much harder for some people than others. These in particular are the patients I find rewarding to treat and to help. If you can take the first step and make the appointment I will do my utmost to overcome your concerns and get you through any treatment you need. I want visits to be as positive as possible and to work with patients to provide treatment they are comfortable with. I am conservative in my treatment, as I often find that less dentistry can be the best dentistry for some people. There are many practices that provide dental treatment, but although it sounds cheesy, I want to provide dental care. Outside of my work my life revolves around my family, Sarah and my two boys who are all they should be and some things they probably shouldn't. I still haven't the sense to give up rock climbing, though my trips are less frequent and in the past few years I've got into mountain biking, which seems to be only slightly less hazardous. (Robyn qualified at Guy's hospital in December 1983) GDC Registration Number: 58544 Gavin Quigley Born and bred in Bournemouth, I returned here from Birmingham University after qualifying in 1988, and have worked in Bournemouth ever since. I became a partner at Cheriton in 2008, bringing the core of my staff with me to join an already well established team. With an excellent manageress dealing with the ever increasing paperwork, I am able to spend more of my time on patient care than I could when I had my own practice. I am proud to be a Denplan Excel accredited dentist and have introduced to Cheriton Dental Practice my own patient preventitive care scheme, ensuring patients receive quality care at discounted prices. Our under 18s can join this scheme too, and benefit from the preventative approach it offers. I enjoy all aspects of Dentistry, and always consider myself to put the needs of the patient first. My spare time is devoted to my wife, Caroline, and my 2 boys, Robert and Matthew. GDC Registration Number: 63827. Carmen Rincon Soler I was born and raised in Málaga, Spain. After qualifying in 2009 from Granada University, I moved to Cambridge and started my career working in a dental practice. I developed an special interest in Oral Surgery, Periodontics and Implant Dentistry. In 2012, I moved to New York, and spent the next two years at New York University (NYU), where I successfully completed a full time advanced program in Implant Dentistry. My training was based on diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment of clinical cases of totally and partially edentulous patients. I gained the knowledge, skills and experience in both Surgical and Prosthodontic Implant Dentistry. I am also an ICOI Fellow and Diplomate (International Congress of Oral Implantologists). I recently moved to Bournemouth and I am delighted to be part of the team at Cheriton Dental Practice. I am dedicated to providing personalised general dental care, and to using the latest techniques in the field of Implant Dentistry. Outside of my work, I love travelling and spending time with my family and friends. I also like cinema and I’m an avid reader GDC Registration Number: 185868
Natalie Clark Originally from Bournemouth, I moved to Wales where I qualified from Cardiff University with Honours. Key highlights of my time studying included organisation of a dental brigade to Ghana in 2014, where we carried out preventive, restorative and emergency dental treatment in a remote community who previously never had access to dental care. I then worked in General Dental Practice in Marlborough where I developed particular interest and skills in restorative and cosmetic techniques. I then moved on to Southampton General Hospital in the Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery Department as a Senior House Officer whilst working a few Saturdays at Cheriton. I feel extremely privileged to have joined such a warm, friendly family based dental practice. Outside of work I enjoy travelling, cooking keeping active and walking the Jurassic Coast. I love meeting people in everything I do, and this is one of the stand out aspects of my career; getting to know my patients, helping them to feel calm and providing them with the best care possible. GDC Registration Number: 259134 Simon Edwards Originally from Wiltshire. I trained at Cardiff dental school and qualified in 2006 with honours. I worked for one year in Wales before moving to Bournemouth in 2007. I have been working here ever since in general practice and also previously on some weekends with the urgent care dental service. I pride myself on being a very patient, friendly and caring dentist with 14 years experience in general practice. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and I am very excited to be joining the team at Cheriton. Outside of work I am very busy at the moment as my wife has recently given birth to our baby girl to accompany our very demanding 3 year old boy! When I’m not changing nappies or building a fort I love to play golf or when my ageing legs allow a game of football! GDC Registration Number: 103466
