*Pain Free Dentist. GDC No. 207753
Ignacio (known as Nacho) studied dentistry in Valencia, Spain, where he completed his degree in 2009.
He has been working in Scotland since 2011, having moved to Scotland after completing the 1 year course “Introduction to implant dentistry” with Biomet 3i, in Madrid (Spain)
After completing this course, Nacho knew he wanted to learn and get more training in implants and restorative dentistry, so he decided to start a 2 years master degree in Implantology and Biomaterials at the University of Toulouse, France. He’s been working with implants since then.
Nacho is very interested in aesthetics and implant dentistry and he has attended numerous courses through the years, such as Digital Smile Design.
N. Sridhar Rao
*Pain Free Dentist. GDC No. 118104
Sridhar is a very experienced general dentist who has a special interest in treating patients who have periodontal (gum) disease. We can all suffer from this at some time in our lives and now we can help patients within our practice, rather then referring them to Edinburgh for this specialised treatment.
His other skill is in the field of endodontics – root canal treatment. This is where the nerve of the tooth dies off and causes an abscess. The treatment demands great skill to achieve a long lasting result and he is also able to re-treat previously root treated teeth to prolong their lifespan.
For both of these treatments, we welcome patients from outside of the practice who may wish to attend for just this specific work and then return to their own dentist. Sridhar has previously worked both in practice and in a university in India, where he rose to be a professor heavily involved with teaching dental students. You will see this from the way in which he explains everything and his very friendly,gentle manner.
