Clinical Team

Simon Templeman
Dentist and Clinical Leader
To achieve the best for our clients, it is not enough to be a ‘good dentist’. It is vital to embrace a team approach to care. Every member of our team is an essential piece – if one part is not allowed to achieve its potential, it will affect the performance of the entire machine. Therefore, as a team we strive for excellence.
