Dr Leigh Hunt, BDS, LDS RCS
Senior dentist and practice owner.
GDC Registration 57297

Welcome. Iíve been a dentist for 28 years and am passionate about giving top quality care Ė both personal and dental. I think our patients really recognise and appreciate this as it gives them confidence theyíre in safe hands. Iím proud to say that some of our patients travel from all over the UK and from abroad to be treated here.

I keep at the forefront of my profession by regularly extending my qualifications. Most recently, as a cosmetic dentist, I have attended post graduate courses in the UK and United States to achieve my Masters in Cosmetic Dentistry at New York University in 2006, plus I have levels one and two in Functional Cosmetics according to the Dawson Centre of Excellence in Florida, USA. I also instruct up and coming dentists in cosmetic dentistry with Aesthetic Advantage from New York University, and have appeared on breakfast TV covering a wide range of dental health matters.

I originally qualified at University College Hospital London in 1982 and spent 7 years working in the NHS before setting up in private practice. We moved into our new state of the art premises in 2005, so that we could deliver everything that modern dentistry and specialist techniques demand.

Lisa-Marie Griffith
Practice manager

I have worked in the dental profession for nearly 14 years and qualified as a dental nurse in 2003.

I joined the team at Bellevue Dental in October 2010 and what I enjoy most about my job is seeing happy smiley faces when each patient leaves the practice.

I deal with the day to day running of the practice. It gives me great satisfaction helping with patient information, so free feel to ask me questions during your visit to us.

Hygenist Yukari Yukari quote

Yukari Shirley
Dental hygienist

Iím from New Jersey, USA and came to the UK in 2005. I am currently one of only four American Hygienists currently licensed to practice Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy in the UK.

I go back to New York every 12-18 months to attend further dental courses so I am up-to-date with the latest practices.

My primary aim is to provide patient satisfaction and to deliver my care in the most thorough yet gentle way possible. I love feedback so please don't be shy! The most rewarding moment for me is when a very nervous patient comes to see me and leaves with a smile and expresses their appreciation.
