Ladislava (Ladi) is a highly skilled hygienist and therapist with 20 years of experience within the dental industry working within the private and specialist practices across London and Scotland.
Ladi’s role focuses on looking after patient's oral health and she enjoys educating both adult and children on how to prevent dental disease and maintain good oral health.
Ladi is qualified to carry out tooth whitening and provides a variety of hygiene services from a scale and polish to achieve that dazzling smile, to the treatment of advanced periodontal disease, as well as liaising with the periodontist and dentists.
Ladi is also a Dental Therapist. This means she has undertaken additional training to provide a wider range of dental procedures, including fillings and children’s dentistry.
Ladi’s particular affinity with children and treating dentally anxious/phobic patients, has lead her to undertake postgraduate training in hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming and relaxation techniques, as an adjunct to dental care. Her gentle and reassuring manner has helped many nervous and highly anxious patients to receive dental treatment and hence maximise their oral health. Being a mother of two she enjoys treating children.
Ladi is passionate about education and have been fortunate enough to teach NEBDN Certificate in Dental Implant Nursing. She is committed to continuing professional development and excellent patient care.
Ladi welcomes new patients referrals.
