• Ruxandra Dumitrescu

    Dentist GDC Reg No: 26774 | DMD Bucharest 2013

    I graduated the University of Bucharest in 2012. Immediately after graduation I started a 3 years MsC in prosthodontics where I had the opportunity to learn and work amongst the best. Furthermore, my clinical experience was enriched by working with Digital Smile Design and CAD-CAM crowns and bridges.

    I joined the Bupa family in November 2017. I am dedicated to helping patients overcome their anxiety and fear of dentists trying to make every visit as enjoyable as possible and my treatments pain-free.

    For the future, my goal is to specialize in orthodontics.

  • Stanley Fernandes

    Dentist GDC Reg No: 80977 | BDS 2002 St Bartholomew’s and the Royal School of Medicine and Dentistry.

    I qualified in 2002 from St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry and have worked within NHS and private dentistry in the south East of England ever since, with over 16 years experience I am well versed in all aspects of dentistry.

    My interests within dentistry are in restorative and aesthetic treatments and I am also working towards being able to provide dental implants in the future alongside orthodontic treatment.
    As the lead clinician at Bupa Hailsham my aim is to ensure all our patients receive the highest standard of care and to make this as pain free and pleasant an experience as possible.
