Andy set up Holly Dental Practice with the aim of establishing it as one of the leading dental practices in the North West. As such, he can guarantee that all his patients will continue to receive the high standard of dental care and treatment they have come to expect from him over the past six years.
Born in Lancashire in 1983, Andy qualified from Newcastle University in 2006 and started his first full-time position as an associate in Preston the following summer. Since then, Andy has completed a number of courses which include Invisalign orthodontics, Enlighten teeth whitening, Med-fx botox and dermal fillers training, advanced endodontics, and most recently, a postgraduate diploma in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
One of the very few dentists to have achieved a diploma based solely around cosmetic dentistry, Andy is able to assess each patient differently depending on their needs, so he can guide patients more effectively in choosing what treatment and outcome is most suitable for them.
He also has a more in-depth knowledge of smile design as well as a better understanding of the most modern techniques and materials used, not only in cosmetic dentistry, but in all forms of general dentistry. Andy promises new patients that after just one appointment, they will never again feel the need to seek alternative dental care, either for themselves or their families.
