Dr Olumide Ojo (better known as Mide), is the owner and principal dentist at Refresh Dental Health. Mide is general dentist with a huge passion for preventative care and restoring smiles in a relaxed, friendly environment. He qualified in 2005 from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne with a Distinction in his Dental degree.
“My approach is not only to care for your teeth but to look after you as a whole person as if you were a member of my own family, keeping you healthy and happy.”
With over 10 years’ of experience in general, cosmetic and surgical dentistry, Mide has the expertise to diagnose early, care for and when necessary treat dental patients.
He offers a full range of treatments from general health dentistry through to cosmetic, surgical implants, orthodontics and tooth straightening procedures, facial aesthetics and sedation techniques for anxious patients, all in a relaxed and pain-free environment. Throughout his career, Mide has constantly strived for self-improvement and completed further education in a number of specialist fields, training extensively in the UK, Europe and USA. He maintains full membership to both the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Royal College of Surgeons London. As a national lecturer for CFAST Orthodontic Systems, Mide enjoys teaching other dentists countrywide and also has a number of publication in scientific dental journals. Recently, Mide has enjoyed positive recognition within his profession. He is proud to have been part of the team winning Best UK Dental Practice 2016 and was also shortlisted as a finalist for Best Young Dentist across the UK twice in succession (2015, 2016). This year, at the Aesthetic Dental Award 2017, Mide was highly commended in the category of restorative dentistry.
“I believe good oral health start with good education and I have a passion for raising awareness particularly among the younger generation. Within my locality, I enjoy being invited into schools to give educational talks on the importance of good oral health.”
Outside of work, Mide enjoys spending time with his wife Ife, and two young daughters Tiwa and Simi who are both very excited as Daddy’s new practice is on the way home from school/nursery! Mide played football to high standard but in later years has moved onto more sedate sports like golf and squash.
