Dr Paul Niland
Dental Implant Surgeon, BchD (Stell), DUI(Lille)
Special interest in implantology and oral surgery
GDC number: 78631
I qualified in June 2000 at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa, before relocating to the UK in 2001. I have always had a particular interest in IV sedation, oral surgery and implantology, and have gained vast experience in all of these fields over the years. I have advanced my knowledge and skills by obtaining a degree in implantology at the prestigious Lille University in France in 2009 and by completing numerous hours in postgraduate courses to stay abreast of the latest techniques.
I am a member of the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD), the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI), British Dental Association (BDA) and General Dental Council (GDC).
I came along yesterday evening for a procedure and I just wanted to say how brilliant Jessen was. He was extremely reassuring, patient and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. He’s definitely the best dentist I’ve ever visited, and I shall widely recommend your clinic based on my experience with him. I have several friends whom are particularly frightened of the dentist and he will be an excellent dentist for them to go to as he was so gentle natured and as said, re-assuring. I’ve woken up today with no tooth pain for the first time in ages, so I’m a very happy customer.
I visited Earley Dental Practice for the first time earlier this year while I was experiencing terrible toothache and did not appear to be receiving the help I needed from the dentist I had been using my whole life. The ladies on reception were wonderful and friendly and couldn’t do enough to help me. Dr Smith put me at ease and was able to see me the same day and fixed my toothache immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Earley Dental Practice to anyone at all. Brilliant service all round!
Feel very relaxed about attending, no fear of pain or discomfort, my dentist Martin always listens to me.
Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, always greeted with a smile. Very pleased with service to my teeth, I enjoy the music when being treated especially Michael Buble!
Practice is professionally run, with a great dentists and support team.
Staff always there when I need them, particularly when I have had an emergency, there’s always a friendly helpful person at the end of the phone.
