Philip Marsh BDS, Principal Dentist: GDC No 64499
I graduated from The Royal London Hospital in 1989 and joined Mr Emery's practice as an associate in 1999. When the old practice in Guildford Street was demolished, I moved into the new building in Riversdell Close and became a partner. When Mr Emery retired in 2002, I took over the practice and have been the practice owner ever since.
I am a big believer in trying to make visits to the dentist as stress free and as easy going as possible. Whether that it is for a nervous person visiting us for the first time or a long term patient of the practice. I am keen to invest in modern technology and new techniques to constantly help improve the service we provide.
At home, I am married with two children and a dog. I am a keen runner and cyclist and like to take part in events to raise money for charity. Most recently I ran the London 10K for CALM and the Prudential Ride 100 for bowel cancer for the second year running. This year I am planning to run the Amsterdam Marathon in October and try raise more money and support for the CALM charity
Stephen Oxborrow BDS Hons(Lond) MJDF RCS(Eng) MSc Rest Dent (UCL): GDC No 193167
I graduated from King’s College London in 2010 before working as an Oral and Maxillofacial Senior House Officer in Basildon Hospital. Following on from this I then moved to London where I have since been working as a General Dentist.
I have always been interested in further developing my clinical knowledge and postgraduate skills and went on to gain Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons in 2012. I have also completed a Master’s degree in Restorative Dental Practice at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.
I am also a qualified Invisalign provider and have been straightening teeth for adults and teenagers for many years. Whilst I enjoy all aspects of dentistry I have a particular interest in providing aesthetic restorations and restoring implants. I take great pride in the quality of my work and always ensure that I take the time to make my patients feel at ease.
Outside of dentistry I enjoy spending time with family and doing DIY around the house.
