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

After graduating in 1999 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals I worked in the hospitals in the restorative dentistry and oral surgery departments. I then worked in practices in East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells before joining Eustace & Partners in 2004. I have chosen not to specialise, preferring the variety of general practice.
I live in Sevenoaks and have three young daughters who take up most of my time away from work. When I get the chance I enjoy sailing, skiing and sewing.

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!
