Mr Andrew CurranDentist BDS BRIST 2012 GDC Number: 229114 GDC Date of Registration: 17 Jul 2012
After graduating from Bristol University in 2012 with Merit in Restorative and Paediatric Dentistry and Distinction in Oral Surgery and Oral Medicine, I returned to my home city of Newcastle upon Tyne to work for a year before travelling back to Bristol and joining Horfield Dental Care in 2013.
I have always loved the unique blend of artistry, science and medicine that Dentistry offers, and have a particular interest in minimally invasive aesthetic dentistry and smile makeovers involving CFast aesthetic braces. I have also always enjoyed alleviating the fears of anxious patients, particularly those who have struggled to visit the Dentist in the past, and are keen to improve their oral health. Working in a profession such as Dentistry, there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone conquer this fear and turn their lives around.
Outside of Dentistry, I am a big film fan and enjoy keeping fit at the gym and playing football regularly.
