Josh has always been aware of the care and commitment afforded to each patient at Southside and as such, was delighted to be given the opportunity to work with the team back in 2018.

How an experience with Dr Josh is different…

Dr Josh utilises the latest technology and techniques to provide cutting edge dental care for his patients. Having trained in top institutions and travelled worldwide to refine his skills in orthodontics and digital smile design, he aims to provide an exceptional patient journey that far exceeds anything they have experienced before. Passionate about changing the face of dentistry in the UK, he also lectures to other dentists on how to use some of these state-of-the-art digital techniques as well as receiving referrals and collaborating with other dentists across Scotland to meet the needs of complex multidisciplinary cases.

Most importantly Dr Josh is incredibly passionate about his work and patients, each of which he treats with the same care and respect as expected for one of his own family…

But what does this really mean to my patients? It means that although I am driven by providing the most natural aesthetic result, this is not at the sacrifice of natural tooth or longevity. Every case is planned meticulously so as to be as minimally invasive as possible and to provide the best smile for the future not just today! As a specialist orthodontist in the field of orthodontics and having a background in advanced restorative dentistry, this allows Dr Josh to bridge the gap between dental disciplines and provide comprehensive treatment plan for his patients promoting treatments such as braces, aligners and other cosmetic colour and tooth shape enhancements. Additionally focusing on more complex orthodontic treatments such as growth modification for growing children and aesthetic facial surgical enhancements for dental malocclusions, facial harmony and breathing disturbances.

‘It is my view that dentistry is about so much more than just teeth, it’s about giving patients their confidence back that drives me. Whether that be the ability to eat daring foods or to be thrilled with their stunning wedding smile – these are the experiences that make the difference in life and the ones that I love having a part in creating for my patients.’
