Dr Neil Evans BDS Hons
Neil has spent over ten years in award-winning private dental practices in Hove and The West End of London. During this time, he has treated thousands of patients, including those who are nervous and need complicated treatment.
“Dentistry is personal. I, therefore, spend time getting to know my patients and enjoy treating them in a relaxed, friendly way. I enjoy listening to clients at the initial consultation to find what they need, so I can make a treatment plan uniquely suited to them. I get great satisfaction when my patients return feeling calm and with a smile on their faces.”
Neil has a particular interest in prosthodontics and aesthetic dentistry. This means he can treat various dental problems with long-lasting success.
- Restoration of single or multiple broken-down teeth
- Replacement of missing teeth with dental implants, bridges or dentures
- Invisalign and reshaping of your teeth
- Treatment of pain or discomfort (sensitivity, aching, grinding).
- Bleeding gums or wobbly teeth (gum disease treatment).
Neil was awarded degrees in dental Surgery (BDS Hons: Lond) and Biological sciences (BSc Hons). He is completing a Master of clinical dentistry (MClinDent) in fixed and removable prosthodontics at King’s College London.
In addition, he completed advanced courses in Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry, Endodontics (root canal treatments), and Periodontics (gum disease treatment). Neil is also a qualified Invisalign provider.
Finally, Neil was awarded a post-graduate diploma (PG DIP) in skin ageing and aesthetic medicine from Manchester University.
Outside of work, Neil is a devoted father, and in his spare time, he likes running, cycling, swimming, and trying to keep his wife happy, Dr Rachel Derby.
I have worked in the dental sector for nearly ten years as a receptionist, nurse, implant nurse and treatment coordinator. I particularly enjoy seeing patients through their treatment journeys and helping them overcome any worries and fears.
I pride myself on my patient care and communication skills. I am always keen to further my knowledge and am enjoying developing skills in the dental world.
When not at work, you will find me walking my two beautiful dogs, running, cycling, or enjoying time with my family.
