Dr Millie is a widely known cosmetic and restorative dentist. Her portfolio features hundreds of Invisalign® and smile-makeover minimal invasive cases, entirely tailor-made.

Her care focuses on cosmetic treatments (Smile make-over, porcelain veneers, composite bonding), Invisalign (awarded Elite Invisalign® Provider), full mouth rehabilitation due to tooth wear and occlusion problems, implant restorations, root canal treatments, facial aesthetics and teeth whitening. Millie also developed a special interest in tooth whitening, undertaking extensive research on this subject as part of her MSc(s) studies.

Dr Millie’s philosophy of practice is to provide relationship-based, patient-centred, and comprehensive care in her dentistry. As part of her commitment to delivering high-quality dentistry to patients, Millie continues to travel worldwide to further her dental education and attends various study groups and courses throughout the year, updating her knowledge on all aspects of dentistry. Millie is greatly liked and respected by her team, patients and colleagues.

In her spare time, Dr Millie relaxes by cycling, swimming, sailing, playing tennis and travelling in old cars.
