Meet Our Dental Surgery Team
I qualified in Stockholm in 1988 and worked for many years in both community and private Dental Practice. In Sweden and the UK I have taken part in extensive postgraduate training with special interest in Implantology, major prosthetic restorations and root canal treatments. I worked for two years in an Implant specialist practice in Stockholm and hold a diploma in the restorative aspects of Dental Implant procedures. I have been practicing in Ayrshire since 2000. From 2001 to 2003, I also worked part time as a teacher in the restorative department of Glasgow University Dental School. Dr Per Jesslen and I have worked together since 1993, treating patients together in Ayr since 2001. My spare time is spent training and racing triathlon; so far i have done 31 seasons!/p>

Dental Implants, as a means of replacing missing teeth, were first introduced in Sweden in the beginning of the 1960’s. The first patient was treated in 1965, in Gothenburg. He had all his implants intact when he sadly died recently. This shows how reliable this treatment is; provided it is well planned and carried out by experienced, and specially trained professionals.I have been involved full time in Oral Surgery since 1991 and started placing Dental Implants in 1992. I qualified as an Oral Surgery specialist in 1997. I held, up until 2003 a part time post as a consultant in the Southern Hospital, Stockholm. At the same time I built up a Private Specialist Practice, where I now work full time.. The total number of Dental Implants I have placed throughout my career exceeds 10,000. At our Practice in Stockholm I also provide general Oral Surgery and general you Dentistry. I am registered with the UK General Dental Council and on their specialist list for oral surgeons. You can view the swedish dental clinic by clicking the link below, it is however in swedish.
I have been working in general practice since I graduated in 1989 and have also spent one year working in Sweden concentrating on advanced restorative techniques. I also have an interest in facial aesthetics and provide wrinkle smoothing treatments and lip augmentation using Botox(TN) and dermal fillers.

I have been with the practice for 7 and a half years and have been a dental nurse for 15 years in various dental practices throughout Ayrshire. I am a qualified dental nurse. I look forward to continuing my education in dental nursing with a radiography course. I always make sure all patients; old and new are made to feel welcome in the practice.

I joined Andersson’s dental practice in September 2014. I have been a dental nurse since 2005 when I left the Royal Navy and began my training in an NHS practice in Peterborough and qualified at Peterborough college. I gained an ‘extended duties dental nurse qualification’ having completed the Childsmile Programme. I enjoy working with all different types of patients and enjoy learning about new types of dental treatments.
