THE PARLIAMENTARY REVIEW Highlighting best practice
Nigel Newton’s Dental Care
Nigel’s practice in Worle, Somerset D ental and facial aesthetics professional Dr Nigel Newton qualified as a dentist 40 years ago this year. As of 2020, Nigel and his team have served the community of Worle, Somerset, for more than 20 years. Nigel explains that at his practice, the service offered is professional, personal and caring, and covers everything from general and cosmetic dentistry through to facial aesthetics. After qualifying as a dentist from Manchester University in 1980, I worked for a number of years in the north of England, in the Community Dental Service and in general dental practices. I served on the local dental committee there. Following this I made the decision to move to Somerset, hoping to purchase a practice in Shepton Mallet. The Irish dentist who was selling the practice in order to return to Ireland changed his mind, though I was fortunately able to find work in a practice in Bristol as well as a part-time teaching post at Bristol University. On November 6, 1984 I opened a brand-new practice in Worle, Weston-super- Mare, where I worked evenings and Saturday mornings while keeping my other two posts, allowing the practice to grow. At this time dentists were not permitted to advertise aside from an eight by ten-inch plaque on the wall outside the surgery. In spite of this, within six months the practice in Worle had grown to such an extent that I was able to give up my job in Bristol and work full-time in my own practice. I continued to teach dentistry to dental undergraduates on Friday afternoons at Bristol University, a post I held for 15 years.
