Our Team

We are a team of experienced and committed dental professionals with a particular interest in the management of anxious patients.

Since qualifying, Calum has been in general practice at St Michael’s Dental Surgery where he has developed a practice with a reputation for successfully working with dentally anxious patients. A major milestone was achieved in 2009 when the practice relocated to a brand new, striking, 21st century premises.

Calum has also been closely involved in the teaching of dental sedation to dental students, newly qualified dentists and dental nurses. He has also worked part-time at the sedation unit in Cardiff Dental Hospital and at the Oral Surgery Dept, Royal United Hospital, Bath.

Ben Attenborough (GDC no. 103773) qualified from the University of Leeds in 2006.

In 2012 Ben and his family moved to Somerset, working in general practice in Wells before joining us in 2015. Ben completed his Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties (MJDF) exam at the Royal College of Surgeons, London in 2013. Ben has a keen interest in helping anxious patients overcome their fear of the dentist with a friendly and patient attitude.

She has a compassionate and caring nature, seeing dental issues in a holistic manner and treating the individual not just the teeth! She loves to educate her patients in the prevention of dental diseases, and takes care in explaining and motivating her patients during her appointments to achieve the best possible results with the least intervention.

During her free time, Lizi loves to keep fit in the gym, watch rugby at the Principality Stadium with her family and explore the art and music scene in Bristol.
