Dr Marjan is very experienced in all disciplines of dentistry and particularly enjoys treating children (as she “knows the tooth fairy”) and those with dental anxieties. Her cheerful and kind personality allows her patients to feel relaxed and comfortable. Marjan takes time to advise her patients on preventive care, talk through all the treatment options and always aims to provide treatment in a gentle and caring manner. Her passion for dentistry is heightened through attending dental courses, learning new techniques in order to provide the quality of care deserved by all of her patients.
