Andrew Brunsden qualified with BDS (Honours) in 1979 from Sheffield University. He then spent a year as a hospital based dentist, increasing his oral surgery expertise. He is dedicated to general dental practice and enjoys the intricacy of advanced and cosmetic dentistry.
Andrew has been committed to continuing postgraduate education since his initial qualification and in 1985 undertook a law degree, obtaining a masters degree in 1990. For the last 13 years he has been a local advisor to the Dental Protection Society, which often requires him to offer advice, assistance and support to other dental practitioners.
Neil Harland qualified from Newcastle University in 2003 and has worked as a general dental practitioner since then in NHS practices around the region. He is very keen on a whole-team approach to preventive dentistry rather than "drill and fill". He is also interested in the use of short term orthodontics rather than destructive veneer preparations to achieve cosmetic improvements. Away from dentistry Neil enjoys football, walking and the theatre.
I enjoy working within a very friendly and professional team. I have undertaken most aspects of Patient Care mainly within the NHS, but also privately. I am interested in Restorative Dentistry and I have completed two one year advanced Restorative Dentistry Courses at Tipton Training Academy in Manchester.
I am particularly interested in adult orthodontic treatments and I have completed the C Fast training course and I had some very good results with this system. I love dentistry ‘‘a mixture of art and technology ‘‘in my view and I am completely devoted to help my patients feel at ease and relaxed during treatment. I am keen on constantly improving my skills. In my spare time I enjoy reading, travelling and spending time with my husband and my son.
Arun graduated in 2014 from Debrecen University, Hungary. He has since worked in general dental practices in the area before joining the Lion House team in 2018.
He takes pride in helping patients stabilise their oral health and endeavours to make dental visits as relaxed as possible.
Away from dentistry he enjoys playing tennis and spending time with family.
I qualified from Liverpool University in May 2014. Since then I have worked in a few mixed NHS/ Private practices across Yorkshire widening my experience. I have also since then completed the Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS) of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
I really enjoy getting to know my patients in a relaxed, friendly environment.
I enjoy practicing minimally invasive dentistry and I love working with composite, (a white filling material,) which can achieve beautiful aesthetic results with little or no tooth preparation on front teeth, or achieve natural looking fillings in back teeth.
I have also started prescribing snore guards to help patients, (and their partners,) achieve more restful and peaceful sleep.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and I also play the cello, often performing with a local orchestra.
