• Sumitha Abayaratne

    Dentist GDC - 56427 -- BDS MSc DCH (Sri Lanka) 1979

    I am passionate about an holistic approach to health & mind and so I have developed my knowledge by doing a Master’s degree at University of London to improve the Clinical outcome in difficult clinical situations; Clinical Hypnosis at London College of Hypnosis, Holistic Healing & Meditation.

    After realising we all clean our body, beautify, care, nuture, looking after, giving food and medication with great to our body, we ignore nurturing, cleansing and giving food to our mind so thoughts could be clogged in the mind causing ill health. I started practicing relaxation and mind cleansing meditation by developing compassion and loving kindness.

    When I am not in the surgery looking after your oral health, you could find me in the garden among flowers and weeds, painting and teaching others how to develop and cleanse their mind and not get trapped in the ‘Rat Race’ and retreat within myself by meditating.

    I have two lovely caring sons, a family and lovely friends around me.

  • Simon Khabra

    Associate Dentist BDS (LEEDS) 2012 | GDC Reg No. 229471

    I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2012, worked in and around both Yorkshire and the Midlands since, providing both NHS and private care for the local population. In 2013 I undertook a placement as a hospital dentist gaining invaluable experience in the medical care of patients whilst honing my oral surgical skills and have since been on numerous courses in restorative and implant dentistry. I feel I have enough experience to be confident in my abilities in general dentistry and I am always looking for opportunities to improve my skills. I savour and actively engage in challenging situations in the knowledge that they are the most character building; I particularly enjoy managing anxious patients as I feel they can be the most gratifying in the long term. 

    Outside of work I enjoy socialising with family and friends, travelling, keeping fit and engaging in new experiences!
