Convictions

Stephen appreciates that people seek endodontic treatment for many reasons: cosmetic, pain relief and work-related factors. He also appreciates that for many people dental treatment is unsettling: both the treatment itself and its potential costs.

As a result, understanding his patients’ circumstances and concerns is paramount to Stephen. As for his clinical approach, it is evidence-based and conservative. He assiduously examines each tooth that may require treatment, which he recommends solely on the basis of sufficient evidence.
