Welcome to Richard Stevens who has recently joined the team at Esthetique Dental.

Richard qualified as a dentist from The University of Birmingham in 2001 and has worked exclusively in private practice for over 10 years. He attributes this to his high professional standards: “In private practice you have the perfect environment to communicate effectively with patients to discover their needs, wants and requirements.  This comes with the professional freedom, equipment, materials and most importantly time to diagnose and plan effectively with the patient and then carry out the required work to a high standard.  This applies whether it is simple preventive procedures and home care advice or more advanced full mouth restorative options”.

Richard has a special interest in periodontology – the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.  This can range from gum bleeding to tooth looseness and loss.  With more than half of the adult population having some signs of gum disease and 10 to 15% of population experiencing severe periodontitis, it has never been more important to diagnose this condition early and then devise the correct treatment approaches in order for the condition to be stabilised reliably.  Ever the academic, he is currently pursuing further postgraduate qualifications at the University of Central Lancashire in this discipline.

He has spent a lot of time treating patients who are anxious or nervous about dental procedures, using techniques such as light sedation to ease their visits. Richard says “after being a nervous patient myself, I can fully relate to anyone who finds it daunting to visit a dentist”.

Richard is an experienced treatment planner with advanced diagnostic skills. He includes prevention, stability, longevity, reliability and aesthetics as his prime foci in dentistry.

Richard has been a resident of Shropshire since 2002, having fallen in love with the county after a short work assignment. His hobbies include outdoor pursuits with his two young children and wife, board games, and 20th century literature.
