INTRODUCING DR. ERIK LIJESEN

Principal Dentist (GDC No: 62085)

Tandarts Amsterdam: 1987

Erik is passionate about dentistry. For him, it’s more than just a service: it’s a precise art and a means to improve the lives of his patients. His philosophy is built around the idea of continual improvement so he’s always delivering the best and most cutting-edge services to his patients.

He is a great believer that to excel at cosmetic dentistry you have to be skilled in a similar way to an artist, as it’s important to consider not only the teeth but the personality, skin tone and facial symmetry when creating the best smiles. So a great artist — a great painting, a great dentist — a beautiful smile.

He first qualified with a degree in dentistry at the Vrije University of Amsterdam, graduating in 1986 and has continued to broaden his skill set ever since as well as being a master of general dentistry,

Erik has extensive training in both dental implants and advanced cosmetic dental treatments, and has been trained by some of the best dental practitioners from around the world. These include the world renowned Didier Dietschi of the Geneva Smile Centre http://www.genevasmilecenter.ch/team_didier_dietschi.html and Ash Parmar of Smile Design by Ash http://smiledesignbyash.co.uk/

Not only does Erik have many years’ experience and a proven track record for excellence which has been recognised by Denplan Care who have extended Erik their elite marque, Denplan Excel, placing him amongst the top echelon of Denplan Care providers. He is also a member of several leading dental organisations in the UK and abroad and is qualified to administer sedation by the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD), which can also assist nervous patients with overcoming their fear.

Outside of work Erik is an active family man and enjoys nothing more than spending time with his wife and family. He is also a dab hand in the kitchen and enjoys cooking for family and friends, trying out new recipes. His other passions are skiing and sailing and when time permits he enjoys following these pursuits which have taken him to Europe and beyond.

INTRODUCING DR. ANUJ NAYYAR

Associate Dentist (GDC No: 272266)

Barts & The London School Of Dentistry & Medicine: 2017

Anuj’s passion lies in transforming his patient’s smiles, to make sure that they look and feel their very best. He enjoys exploring what patients want from their visits, listening to their concerns and desires. Anuj knows that by understanding these factors, he can work closely with his patients to achieve beautiful results. For Anuj great dental care means having great relationships. He likes to take the time to build trust with his patients and to help them achieve a better understanding of their oral wellness, which is the key to keeping them as healthy as possible. He has become a qualified Conscious Sedation practitioner, so even patients with severe dental anxiety can receive great care. The combination of art and science sparked an interest in dentistry which led Anuj to study at the world-renowned Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. Where he excelled, achieving merits or distinctions in every year.

Following a year in general dental practice, he went on to hold the extremely prestigious position of Senior House Officer in Restorative Dentistry at the Royal London Dental Institute. He saw patients whose dental conditions were too complex to be managed in general dental practice and was able to further enhance his skills working with top consultants in their fields. For his work here he won the Best Clinical Case Presentation Prize in 2019. Coinciding with this, Anuj has undertaken training in the latest Aesthetic and Cosmetic dental techniques to achieve their perfect smiles. Outside of the clinic, Anuj loves travelling and exploring different cultures. He has a keen interest in composing music, which he has done since he was a teenager. His ideal weekend would be spent catching up with friends, reading and cooking up something delicious at home.
