Meet Our Team

Richard Henderson

Richard Henderson

MDS, BDS (Otago), Dip Clin Dent (Perio), DGDP (UK)

Specialising in the field of periodontology and implantology is a rewarding and exciting field and one Richard has been involved with since 2001.

Constant advances in these areas means that often, even patients with advanced problems can be successfully treated. Now when teeth can no longer be maintained, dental implants provide patients with a “fixed” option to replace missing teeth.

The benefit of healthy gums has been linked to a healthy heart with reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes so take the opportunity to have your gums checked by Richard or one of his clinical team.
