Dentist's Profiles

Paul was born in Maidstone and attended the Grammar School for Boys. He completed his dental training at Guys Hospital, London Bridge in 1981 and has been practicing dentistry in Whitstable ever since! He has 34 years experience in general dental practice and more than 20 years experience in orthodontics (Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth so as to improve their appearance and function). Paul has been involved in numerous postgraduate activities, including writing books, computer assisted learning programs and peer-reviewed articles as well as carrying out practice-based research. He was the Dental Postgraduate Tutor at Kent and Canterbury Hospital for 5 years and has lectured around the UK on various dental topics. Paul is a keen cyclist and an active member of St Mary Bredin church in Canterbury and Whitstable Rotary Club. He is married and his two 'boys' are now at University.

Charles (Charlie) was born in Newcastle upon Tyne where he lived for 25 years and qualified at Newcastle University Dental School in 1983. He then moved to Kent where he took his first job in general practice in Canterbury and apart from a year in Australia has remained in the area ever since. He joined Kelvin House in 1997 and with over 30 years experience in general dental practice regularly enjoys post graduate courses. Together with his wife he enjoys cycling, skiing, snowboarding, windsurfing and sailing and has been a member of Whitstable Yacht Club for many years.

Parminder or "Parm" is from North West Kent where after attending Dartford Grammar, he went on to qualify from King's College London in 1995. He has been in private practice for over 10 years and holds a postgraduate qualification in Prosthodontics (this essentially covers the whole range of day-today dentistry but especially dentures/crowns/bridges/veneers). Consequently, he is happy undertaking anything from a simple filling to rather complex cases. He also performs several roles as a member of the teaching faculty at King's College London, as well as co-presenting a course teaching other dentists about providing aesthetic crowns, bridges and veneers. Outside of dentistry, Parm's other passion is music and spending time with his young family (as well as a little cycling and picking up a golf club occasionally!).
