Neeraj Puri with a special interest in Implants
My passion is working with my clients to create the smile they want. If the client is delighted with the end result I feel that I have done my job and can go home happy. I enjoy having the time to sit down and discuss and understand my client’s concerns, needs and aspirations and also how the result that we achieve will improve their quality of life. After all an attractive smile gives people more confidence as well as enjoyment in eating and communicating with others.
I love spending time with my family. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, travel and cycling. Cycling as a passion has been a rediscovery in the last two years. Before this the last time I cycled was when I was 10!!
“I am dedicated to the smooth running of the practice together with making sure our clients and team are well looked after. In my spare time I enjoy golf, running and scuba diving.”
Lucy qualified as a dental nurse in 1982 when she had the privilege of working with one of the UK’s first implant surgeons. This experience, along with her very friendly and well organised approach, enables her to empathise with our clients needs and aspirations.
Lucy has two daughters and enjoys spending time with her family, friends and walking her dog.
“I am a “people person” and one of the most enjoyable aspects of my role is interacting with our clients both established and new. Helping them to experience a first class journey through the practice is my ultimate goal”
