Josh is a passionate dentist who is known for his caring attitude towards patients and he is committed to providing them with the highest standard of care, using the most up to date techniques.
Josh’s areas of interests are repairing and restoring extensively broken-down teeth and replacing missing teeth. He has a large amount of experience in treating complex cases, including those which are too complex for general dentists to carry out. He believes it is important to look at the mouth and jaw as a whole mouth; planning holistic treatment plans which match individual patients’ desires.

He is currently training with world leaders in the field of Prosthodontics; where he is specialising in treating complex cases involving tooth wear, dentures, dental implants, crowns and bridges.
What patients say about Josh;
“Josh was very professional, yet friendly at the same time. He took the time to explain everything in easy to understand terms and did a brilliant job when I needed an extraction and new denture”
“Having issues such as low threshold for pain, damaged teeth due to previous grinding and previous gastric reflux, strong gag reflex etc. I didn't know what to expect. But already on the first consultation he listened to my dental history very thoroughly examined my teeth, X rays, CT scan. He then explained to me how he could help me. I was suddenly after all these years feeling hopeful, a glimmer of hope and a solution to my long-standing problems with my teeth. And I was going to be able to smile without putting a hand, covering my teeth.
Once my treatment commenced, I was nothing but impressed by being included in the treatment plan. Someone was communicating with me and I felt listened to. I wasn't scared or ashamed of my teeth when I went to the clinic.
And for the first time I wasn't scared of feeling pain when having dental procedure. Because I received the amount required of local anaesthetic. If I started to have pain. I could just raise my hand to make Dr Josh aware of it. I got a device as well to rest my jaw so that I didn't get cramp in my jaw muscles.
Not only did Josh do a wonderful work on my teeth. They also played my favourite music on the computer to make me even more relaxed during my treatment.
The end result of my teeth is absolutely amazing! I cried of happiness when I saw my teeth. I can now laugh and smile. I don't need to put a hand over my mouth.”
