Fuz has a keen interest in prevention as the core of a minimally invasive practicing ethos and believes in a team approach to dental care. He feels his role is to mentor the successful FD in the practicalities of dental life as well as nurturing a love of delivering care to patients, helping them keep their teeth as healthy and functional for as long as possible. Fuz looks forward to welcoming you to the practice and promises a year of learning, growth and development in all aspects of dentistry as well as setting the stage for your continued enjoyment and guiding you to appreciating your own vision of the dentist you would like to become.
The Practice: Fuz was fortunate enough to buy a small practice in Kenilworth in 2001 that kick started Pennington Dental and he set up Pennington Dental in Stratford Upon Avon (PDSt) in 2010 as a new NHS site, then situated within the health centre on Arden Street. In December 2019 he and his team successfully relocated the practice into a brand new purpose built ground floor premises comprising a consult/study room, office, clean and dirty decontamination rooms, kitchen and 4 clinical rooms along a prominent position on a very busy road leading into the town centre a few minutes walk away.
We have recently introduced a digital intra oral scanner and our two senior nurses have stepped up to Treatment Coordinator roles which has lead to a growth in Invisalign and Implant cases.
The patient population is quite diverse and will provide the range of treatments needed to develop a well rounded GDP, including full mouth dentistry as well as the more simple single restoration cases. The practice boasts digital radiography, rotary endodontic equipment including flat screen TVs in each treatment room for effective patient communication and co diagnosis discussions and has a team of staff dedicated to their continual growth as well as that of the practice. The Itero intra oral scanner compliments better discussions with patients to help them understand their own health and of course helps us to provide more accurate dental care.
