Louise Southworth BDS


I am a dedicated health professional and have worked in the NHS for over 30 years, and seen many changes. I have vast experience in providing general dentistry care to Adults and Children alike and have a particular interest in helping nervous patients overcome the natural fear of the Dentist!

Over the past 3 years I have worked in Private Practice treating a diverse patient base, whilst being able to spend time to educate and improve their dental health and wellbeing. Something that is not always possible in the NHS system. I also have a keen interest in Endodontics.

I am also a keen tennis player and and also enjoy walking (unlike my Husband!!) 

I have spent time walking the Camino de Santiago both in Spain and in Portugal and, I am currently on a “quest” to complete as many Wainwrights (walks!) as possible!

I also enjoy spending time with my Family and 2 dogs.

I am looking forward to meeting new and old patients and starting my new role at the Practice.
