Meet Our Team
Dr Gurvinder 'Dr Tina' Kaur Dhamija - Principal Dentist
Dr Gurvinder Kaur Dhamija grew up in Ludhiana in Punjab, India, graduating with a Bachelor in Dental Science from the University of Maghad in 2004. Dr Dhamija moved to the area in 2014 and soon built up a loyal following of patients who are drawn to her gentle and empathetic manner. Better known as Dr Tina by her patients, she is excellent at helping people feel comfortable and is always more than happy to answer questions or discuss dental concerns.
Dr Tina is very much a perfectionist who wants everyone to enjoy the benefits of good dental health.

As someone who prides herself on providing the best possible treatment for her patients, Dr Tina makes sure she keeps up with the very latest technologies.
