Our Team.

David Nott BDS (Hons) Newcastle.

GDC No. 64357
I studied Dentistry in Newcastle and qualified in 1989 with honours. I have since worked in some wonderful Dental Practices in Sussex.

I have two teenage children, Joshua and Grace, who hope to study Medicine and Law, respectively. My identical twin sisters are also both Dentists, too!

When not working, I enjoy motorsports, working on classic cars and attending Goodwood and the Le Mans Classic. I am currently rebuilding a Triumph Stag and have re-shelled an MGB! I also enjoy spending time outside, paddle boarding, kayaking, mountain biking and fishing. I love gardening and enjoy growing anything unusual, from cuttings and seeds.

I love treating patients and volunteer regularly for the dental charity ‘DentAid’. I am passionate about all aspects of dentistry.

History

Ben Wood BDS (RCS Eng).

GDC No. 74967
Ben Wood qualified from Guy’s Hospital in 1998 and joined Heathcote House that year for what was the start of six very happy years. He considers himself very lucky to have cared for an extremely nice group of patients during that time. Then in 2004 he took the opportunity to take over his parent’s practice in Brighton as the principle dentist, with his successor at Heathcote being Thomas Dehlsen.

Ben has had the pleasure and responsibility of being a vocational/foundation dental trainer for ten years. He also went back to studying and sat the MJDF examination at the Royal College of Surgeons and completed a certificate in Endodontics (root canal treatment) at the University of Warwick.

Ben and his partner Hannah, who is a GP in Lewes, have three children; two girls and a boy ranging from 22 months to 10 years of age. He manages the occasional game of football but enjoys beginner’s hockey with Hannah too! He enjoys the benefits of living in the South Downs and would love to find more time for gardening and chair making.

GDC No. 193150
Dan graduated in 2010 from the Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Dental Institute in London, and spent his early years in dentistry under the warm paternal wing of our very own super dentist, Dr Ben Wood. He also spent a year working with the maxillofacial surgery team in East Grinstead, and has since been practising dentistry with a special interest in aesthetics at various locations in Sussex.
