Chris Park

Little Dental Co. Owner
GDC :78125. BDS London 2000
(Not on site as works from his shared Welshmill Dental Practice in Frome)

Chris Park

Chris doesn't like drilling teeth any more than his patients like having them drilled. This is why one of his main principles is to focus on minimally invasive and preventative dentistry. He also tries to avoid amalgam fillings – he doesn’t like their appearance, the fact they can cause teeth to crack and certainly doesn't like the associated health risks. Chris’ philosophy in life is to do everything to the very best of his abilities… he reflects this in his role as a dentist.
