Meet Our Dentists
Ken set up Hill Place dental practice in 1987 then relocated to Eden Dental Clinic in 2009. He initallly came to work in the city for just eight months, and 300 years later he’s every bit as smitten. When not in his surgery Ken loves all things outdoors and is a keen cyclist and hillwalker. When not working or out on his bike, he can often be seen in the local A&E department recovering from his numerous bike falls! In September 2020 Ken is planning an Epic Bike Ride to raise funds for Maggies. To help him in his fundraising Eden Dental Clinic will be organising and supporting a series of events.
Helen graduated from Liverpool University in June 1996. After qualification she spent her first three years completing vocational training in a general dental practice in Wales, also at this time she gained valuable experience during the best part of 2 years in the Oral surgery department of Prince Charles Hospital Merthyr Tydfil And Worcester Royal Infirmary. Helen moved to Inverness in April 1999 where she practiced at the Academy Dental Practice for almost 20years. In February 2019 she joined the Eden Dental Clinic.

After completing her training in other dental practices in the Inverness area, and passing her dental nursing qualifications, we were delighted when Anna joined the Eden dental practice in August 2019.
