Vanya Ruseva / Principal Dentist
Specialist Prosthetic Dentistry ( Plovdiv) 2005
Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry an extensive 2 years course BARAD
Hello my name is Vanya Ruseva. I qualified from the Medical University of Plovdiv 2002. Further to this I then continued my professional development and completed 3 years specialisation in Prosthetic Dentistry.
As my passion is that of cosmetic dentistry I have since completed an extensive 2 years course in Aesthetics and Restorative Dentistry and I am a very experienced practitioner with facial aesthetics such as Botox.
My aim is always to give my patients the best experience and to help them fulfil their smile dreams to the best of my knowledge and ability.
I am a very experienced dentist with a special interest in restoration of teeth and cosmetic dentistry such as smile makeovers, veneers, tooth whitening and bonded fillings.
I have extensive experience with anxious and nervous patients and it is always my aim to make my patients feel happy and comfortable during their time with us.
Outside of dentistry and work I love spending time with my family and friends doing such things as outdoor activities and cooking when I get the time.
Lauren Nowlan/ Hygienist
Lauren qualified as a dental therapist in 2014 from the University of Sheffield, after previously working as a dental nurse.
Lauren enjoys working alongside all her patients to help improve their oral health and to give them the right tools and knowledge to maintain their health at home. Lauren takes pleasure in seeing a variety of patients and takes pride in tailoring treatment to each individual and making the appointment as comfortable as possible.
Recently, Lauren has undertaken further qualifications to offer aesthetic treatments to her patients, including chemical peels and Sunekos (injectable) treatments.
These treatments can be used to target many skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne, dullness or hyper pigmentation (dark marks or blemishes on the skin).
In her spare time Lauren enjoys reading, attending gigs and concerts and going on holiday as much as possible.
Charlotte Ryan / Hygienist
Charlotte qualified from the University of Sheffield in 2016. She qualified with distinction for her studies.
Charlotte takes an empathetic approach to patient care and tries to make our patients feel at ease. She can help you improve your oral health, through giving bespoke advice and providing prevention, treatment and management of gum health problems.
Charlotte can also help to make your teeth look whiter through the removal of surface stains. This can be achieved by air polishing. This method uses a mixture of air, water and powder to polish your teeth. It is a gentle and effective way of accessing difficult areas of the mouth and removing damaging plaque, leaving your teeth feeling squeaky clean.
I joined the Ward & Allison team as a Dentist in September 2019. I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2018 and completed my Foundation Training in Nottingham where I had a lot of experience treating very anxious patients. Because of this I particularly enjoy helping anxious patients to feel comfortable in the dental chair and have a gentle preventative approach towards dental treatment. Since then I have been working as a General Dentist focusing on developing my skills so that I can offer additional treatments to my patients such as Invisalign, whitening and composite bonding.
I regularly volunteer for dental charity Teeth Team which provides dental education and check ups for children during school time. I am also involved with dental politics previously having held positions on the British Dental Association's Students and Young Dentists Committees. In these roles I have enjoyed learning more about the wider dental profession including issues that dentists face on a day to day basis and often meet with other committees to find solutions that keep both dentists and patients happy.
In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit by going to the gym and spend a lot of my time both playing and coaching Lacrosse. I love to bake and usually spend most of my weekend cooking for family and friends.
Emon Muktadir / DENTIST
Emon joined Ward and Allison in September 2020. He studied Dentistry at the University of Central Lancashire and prior to this he studied Pharmacy at Aston University. Emon uses his clinical skills and knowledge as both a dentist and pharmacist to provide his patients with high quality holistic treatment.
Emon’s natural ability to make children feel at ease whilst in the dental chair comes from twelves years of being a child care worker for children with additional needs.
Emon is excited to be the newest addition to our dental team and looks forward to helping all patients in achieving a healthy smile that they can be proud of.
