Dr. Paul Mandon-Gassman

Qualifications: BDS

I qualified from Sheffield in 1987 and moved to Kent in 1994, working at his current practice since 1998, becoming a co-owner in 2002 and achieving Denplan Excel Accreditation in 2004.

For over 20 years I have sought out the best teachers in the world in cosmetic, reconstructive and functional dentistry to gain the skills that I now offer patients at Sturry Dental Practice in Canterbury, Kent. I created the exclusivesmiles.co.uk brand to showcase the best that modern dentistry has to offer. I also provide sessions at Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital for Medway Community Healthcare as a Dental Officer treating special needs patients.

As a previous full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic dentistry (BACD), I have experience in treating all type of cosmetic problems from simple tooth whitening to full smile makeovers. In the past I have been a member of the BACD membership, communication and congress committees. I have a reputation for a conservative approach to dentistry that will offer long term aesthetic results from the minimum of intervention; this can be seen with my use of various brace systems to align teeth prior to a final makeover.

I have a special interest in the treatment of head, neck and facial pain and its relation to poor jaw function and am a member of the British Society of Occlusal Studies (BSOS) which exists to help practitioners treat and prevent these common problems. Membership is by invitation only to practising dentists who have completed an arduous training programme which typically takes five years. I have lectured on the subject to other dentists and technicians and provided hands on courses on Facebow use and jaw registration.

I am an “opinion leader” for Ivoclar Vivadent and lecture and tutor hands on courses for them on Composites, Cements and tooth preparation for the Emax ceramic system.

I like to help people to understand what dentistry can offer them and as the No1 ‘Active Dentist’ on the award-winning patient education website All About Teeth (allaboutteeth.co.uk), spend time answering the public’s questions regarding their dental concerns. I am also a member of the Association of Dental Implantology UK (ADI, visit adi.org.uk), a registered charity dedicated to providing the profession with continuing implant education and the public with a greater understanding of the benefits of dental implants. I am a full member of the Tipton Training Dental Academy which provides me with the latest dental scientific knowledge and clinical techniques. I am honoured to have been asked by Paul Tipton to act as a Study Club Chairperson for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry
