BDS (Lpool) 1985
GDC No. 60541
Although I was born in Scotland, I grew up in Liverpool and achieved my qualifications at Liverpool Dental School in December 1985. I began my career in general practice in various surgeries in the Liverpool area, which is where I met a young dental nurse Vivien who was later to become my wife. We moved to south east England in 1988, settling in the village of East Peckham and I started as an associate dental surgeon at Eustace & Partners on the 7th July 1988.
Vivien and I have two children, Calum was born in September 1989 and two years later my daughter Lorna was born, also in September.
I have always enjoyed my life at Eustace & Partners, it’s a happy and comfortable environment, so in 1998 after working at the practice for 10 years, I became a partner and became sole owner in 2012. I have never felt the particular desire to specialise in any one aspect of dentistry and enjoy the challenge of keeping up to date with the latest techniques. At Eustace & Partners, we are very lucky to be able to offer our patients the services of specialists that cover areas outside of my experience.
Beside my career I like to keep busy, after the usual demands of DIY and gardening, I enjoy spending time with my family, while fitting in some swimming, running and cycling, as I like to complete a few triathlons each year.
BDS (Lond) 1999
GDC No. 76563
After graduating from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 1999 I worked in those hospitals in the Restorative Dentistry and Oral Surgery Departments. I then moved to General Practice in East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells before joining Eustace and Partners in 2004. I have chosen not to specialise, enjoying the variety and long term relationships with patients, that develop in general practice. I value my patient’s trust and strive to earn that with gentleness, empathy and a holistic view.
I live in Sevenoaks and have three sporty daughters who keep me very busy. When I get the time I enjoy sailing, textiles and reading.
BDS (Lond) 1983
GDC No. 58635
Louise gained her BDS from University College, London in December 1983. She subsequently gained her LDS from the Royal College of Surgeons in January 1984. Having spent the first ten years of her career working in private practice in Wimbledon, she moved to Kent at the end of 1992 for the birth of her second child and has lived and worked in Kent ever since. Louise has spent most of her career working in private practice and enjoys all aspects of dentistry, finding it particularly rewarding to help nervous patients to regain their confidence. She is also particularly interested in endodontics and aesthetic restorative techniques.
Louise is married with three grown-up children who all went to schools in the area and has lived in Offham for twenty years. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, gardening and reading.
MORTH (RCS Eng.) 2008, MSc (LOND) 2008, MFDS (RCS Eng.) 2003, BDS (LOND) 2001
GDC No. 79738
Manjinder (or Maneh as she is better known!) is a Specialist Orthodontist with over 20 years’ experience of working in dentistry.
She graduated from King’s College London in 2001 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree, during which time she was awarded two prizes in recognition of her academic achievements. Following this, for the first four years of her career, she actively pursued a mix of hospital, community clinic and practice roles to ensure exposure to a broad dental experience which allowed her to develop a wide range of invaluable skills.
Simultaneously, Maneh continued her academic studies with a further two years of postgraduate dental training, culminating in the award of her Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS) in 2003, by the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS Eng). By this time, it was clear to Maneh that her passion for dentistry lay in Orthodontics with its detail and problem-solving but more significantly – its power to transform smiles and go beyond even cosmetic and functional improvements with a potentially life-changing impact on self-esteem and confidence, for children and adults alike!
In her commitment to this pathway, she embarked on the three-year specialist training programme at Guy’s Hospital and peripheral units in Kent. She qualified in 2008 with her Membership in Orthodontics (MORTH) and a Master of Science (MSc) degree. At the end of which, she was privileged to be one of a select few chosen to represent the Guy’s orthodontic faculty at an overseas visit to Shanghai. Her research into orthodontic education earned a Distinction and was published in the European Journal of Dental Education. She has also published in the British Dental Journal and presented at the British Orthodontic Conference and the British Orthodontic Society (of which she is a member- Orthodontic Specialist Group).
Since 2008, her career has been focused solely on specialist orthodontics again in a mix of hospital and practice posts to broaden experience before settling on the practice pathway. This led her to procure and lead on an NHS contract, as Principal, setting-up a new and successful service in Kent. That is now part of the Portman family, as is Maneh- joining Eustace in 2017 where she has been able to apply her expertise to leading on our private and NHS orthodontic care provision.
She can offer both removable and fixed braces including aligners, metal and tooth-coloured options to both adults and children. Her ethos is to understand each patient and their unique needs or circumstances so they can navigate all potential options with enough guidance to help them determine the right plan for them, and to then deliver that care in a friendly and down-to-earth manner. Outside of work, you will probably find Maneh contemplating interior design and roping her kids into creating mood boards!
BDS, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne 2002
GDC No. 80609
Tori graduated from Newcastle Dental Hospital in 2002 and started her career in the North East. The first few years confirmed that general practice was what she really enjoyed - the variety of patients from the very young to the more mature, guaranteeing that no two days are ever the same. This passion for general practice led to her studying and passing the MJDF examinations in 2009, a post graduate qualification that is uniquely based on general dentistry rather than a specific speciality.
Relocation down South brought her to Sevenoaks, and she settled into a private practice Orpington, working there for over twelve years before joining the team at Eustace.
Her ethos is simple - a visit to the dentist should not be one that's dreaded. Building up a great dentist - patient relationship based on trust, kindness, being able to offer the highest quality of treatment and understanding of the patient's needs is paramount. She really enjoys the feeling of being part of a family practice that in itself is part of the community in which it's located.
In her spare time she enjoys running and skiing. You may often see her running around Sevenoaks with her dog in tow!
