Dr Dorothy Riley - Practice Principal
I am particularly passionate about providing comprehensive dental treatment that is directed at the whole individual and not just their mouths. I have special interests in Orthodontics (straightening crooked teeth) , Periodontics (gum problems), Inman aligner treatment (straightening front teeth) conservative cosmetic dentistry especially using adhesive (bonding) techniques and working with people who haven't been confident enough to see a dentist for a long time. I do my utmost to help such patients deal with their dental anxieties while improving their dental situations.
I have completed a Master's degree in Advanced General Dental Practice from Kings College London.
I am a member of the British Dental Association and the British Orthodontic Society. I am also a registered Inman Aligner provider.
I look forward to welcoming all patients to Dover Priory Dental with a smile!
"I qualified as a dental hygienist at Guy's Dental Hospital in 1980 and went on to be the first hygienist to join the Maxillofacial team at the newly opened William Harvey Hospital that year.
Since 1986 I have worked between two specialist dental practices in Ashford. One being 'The Orthodontic Practice' and the other one which specialises in Periodontics and Implants.
I am very committed and passionate about preventive care. My aim is to promote good oral hygiene and health for the benefit of all my new dental patients within the practice."
