BDS Dund. 1978
Your Principal Dentist
GDC No. 51932

Nigel qualified in 1978 at University of Dundee dental school. His career in dentistry started in community dental service working with children, people with disabilities and patients suffering from extreme dental phobia allowing him to expand his skills in paediatric dentistry and the anxious patient.

With a move to general practice in 1982, he opened South Lane Dental in 1993. This patient-centred, private dental practice has developed with his years of experience and continuous post-graduate courses keeping South Lane in-pace with new procedures, developing a network of competent, reliable and friendly professionals to help us meet your needs.

BSc (Hons) Cumlaude Vzla
Your Dentist
GDC No. 254448

Tania qualified as a Dentist in 2000 from Central University of Venezuela (and as an Optometrist in 1999). She has since worked as an academic lecturer in health science and worked as a general dentist in a variety of practices before joining South Lane Dental. This has given her an extensive and integrated knowledge on treating patients, both adults and children alike, always making the needs of her patients her priority.

Looking for ways of improving her technique and being up to date with the latest advances in dentistry has motivated her to undertake courses in cosmetic orthodontics and most recently, a Post graduate certification in Contemporary Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry, in order to provide a high standard of dental care.

Your Dentist
GDC No. 196152

He likes to follow a minimally invasive approach to dentistry and believes there is nothing as good as your own healthy teeth. With this said Malcolm believes prevention is key. He prides himself on making patients feel at ease during their appointments and patient care is his number one priority. When Malcolm is not at work he has a young family who he loves spending time with. They are a very sporting family and their weekends are normally spent participating in some or other ball sport. When they are not chasing after a ball they are F1 and MotoGP super fans.
