Ben Wood BDS MJDF (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.
