I moved to Hanwell 15 years ago, and am truly embedded into the community.
I really enjoy caring for the gum health of my patients and take great pride in making a difference to the successful outcome of treatments that I provide especially when dealing with chronic periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can often go unnoticed until it is quite advanced. Most people however will notice signs like red swollen gums, bleeding gums, gum recession, tooth sensitivity and bad breath. It’s at this point that I can help to ensure your gums stay healthy.
Outside of work, I can usually be found in the local parks and restaurants with my young family. When I have a minute to myself, you can usually find me with my nose in a book or in the kitchen baking.
In addition, to helping maintain a healthy mouth, Colin takes particular care of patients who are having dental implants, cosmetic procedures and orthodontic (braces) treatment.
