Dr Christopher Brown
BDS 2007, DPDS(BRIS)
Chris trained at the University of Bristol, qualifying with a Bachelors in Dental Surgery in 2007. He is a highly experienced dentist at London Dental Arts Forest Hill with a passion for providing the best dental care available for our patients, with a particular focus on providing root canal treatment and therapies, especially for those with dental anxiety and fear.
He believes dentistry should be about patient comfort and wellbeing, allowing those he treats to be more confident, better informed, and happy both within themselves and out, delivering the perfect balance of modern smile design with patient care at the centre of his approach.
It was a passion for saving teeth wherever possible, that led Chris to developing a special interest in Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment). Chris has completed the Diploma programme in Endodontics with simplyendo and Chester university, where he shall be continuing his studies to complete his dissertation (concerned with the management of anxiety in those requiring root canal treatments) and attain a Masters in Endodontics.
Root Canal Treatment can have a bad reputation, historically many people have chosen to have teeth taken out rather than treated, believing the process to be painful. Chris jokes that his approach to providing Root Canal Therapies must be the most boring in the UK, for it’s often the case that his patients when asked about their experience claim to have fallen asleep in the dental chair! That being said… with his contagious enthusiasm inspiring confidence in those he cares for, if anyone can make root canal treatment interesting it would be him.
He is a proponent of minimally invasive dentistry especially, having trained in Italy with the master of composites himself, Lorenzo Vanini, who has an international reputation.
Chris is qualified in providing various forms of sedation and techniques to help anxious patients relax, having undertaken post-graduate studies with the University of Bristol, where he gained a Diploma with Merit in Postgraduate Dental Studies focusing on anxiety management, local anaesthetics, and sedation.
Chris has also completed a certificate in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry and has gone on to complete the International Team for Implantology (ITI) Foundation in Implant Dentistry programme and seek further hands-on-training in Implant placement and Guided Bone Regeneration under the tutelage of Alfonso Rao at the Delta Dental Academy in Bristol.
Furthering his holistic approach to dental care, Christopher is an approved Invisalign® and Six-Month Smiles® orthodontic provider, working together with his patients to improve and enhance all aspects of their smile.
Dentistry aside, Christopher has a passion for the arts; he may often be found reading a book on his commute or attending a West End show. He has always particularly loved live music and is extremely interested in film, having even been involved in an independent vampire comedy (as the resident tooth expert of course!).
