Following his graduation in Dentistry in 2011, he gained an invaluable experience in managing dental pain and endodontic emergencies, working for two years in military and regional hospitals in Greece. These experiences fostered his interest in enhancing his endodontic clinical skills, to accurately diagnose and relieve patients from pain and help them save compromised teeth.

He enjoys taking time to thoroughly discuss treatment options with his patients to aid in their informed decisions. His excellent knowledge and integration of Endodontic science to clinical practice and his wish to transfer his skills to his peers, resulted in his appointment as Clinical Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Endodontic Masters programmes at the world-renowned UCL Eastman Dental institute. He served this role for four years being heavily involved in teaching and clinical supervision of aspiring endodontic specialists, coaching them to fulfil their potential. His commitment to teaching and learning was affirmed by his recognition as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. His research was published in international journals and focused on investigating bacterial mechanisms that influence root canal disinfection and how to tackle them, to optimise the long-term success of root canal treatment. He is currently limiting his practice to endodontics, working in private practices in London, Winchester and Hitchin. He is experienced in providing the full spectrum of endodontic services, including clinical diagnosis and management of dental pain, conventional root canal treatment and re-treatment cases, and has a particular interest in managing technically demanding cases and saving compromised teeth.

Julie Hygienist

Julie Petersen

Dental Hygienist and Therapist
BSc Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy (Ports) 2010
GDC no. 195591

Final Year Project – Researching the cause of Dentine Hypersensitivity and the effectiveness of different ingredients found in sensitive toothpastes

I was shortlisted in 2012 for National Dental Hygienist/Therapist of the Year I have worked at City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic since 2010. City Bridge have been owned by the corporate chain “Portman Dental” since 2018.

Working at City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic is unique, as well as being a private referral practice but we have a patient-centric approach to dental services. This allows me to provide longer appointment times to ensure I give tailored treatment and advice to each and every patient I see. I enjoy the challenge of helping patients maintain more complex treatment plans; whether it be full mouth implants, complex orthodontic treatment or periodontal maintenance appointments.

I enjoy providing a service that helps take prevention of dental health problems to the next level and am fortunate enough to use the latest equipment (e.g, EMS airflow) to help me achieve this. I also treat patients under the direct access scheme and prescribe and take necessary radiographs.

Career

I have had an extensive career in Dentistry, having started my career as a Dental Nurse, Dental Health Educator and then an NVQ Dental Nurse Assessor.

Prior to this I worked for Blue Chip Company Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) as a Dental and Pharmaceutical Business Development Manager. I gained a qualification for the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and sat on a panel of experts to design educational resources for schools.

I used my knowledge of child dental health to help liaise with the National Sugar Bureau and launch “Ribena tooth-kind” to the dental profession. After this broad list of roles, it seemed like natural progression to become a Dental Hygienist and Therapist, leading me to my role at City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic. I am proud to be part of the Portman Hygienist and Therapist Forum and to be involved in decisions affecting my working day.

Hobbies and interests

Outside of work I am a mother to my son (an extremely talented musician); a beautiful daughter (who also works in healthcare) and a very bright step daughter.

In my spare time I enjoy astrology, spinning and chair my local tennis club.

  • Short listed for Dental Therapist of the Year in 2012
  • Available under the new Direct Access Guidelines

My role at City Bridge Dental & Implant Clinic is that of Dental Hygienist and Therapist. Predominately, I support the dentist with their patients oral hygiene and aid them in controlling their gum disease. I work alongside the periodontist providing help and support for patients needing continuous oral hygiene guidance. Being dual qualified, I also do basic dentistry which allows me to offer more time and support for children needing restorative work. I find my role extremely rewarding as I can help patients overcome their anxieties and fears and motivate them to change their health for the future. Seeing fantastic results achieved by my patients is extremely satisfying.

After qualifying as a dental therapist and hygienist in 2009, I completed two years in community one of which was completing a vocational training scheme for undergraduates. Working in a community sector gave me an understanding of the challenges experienced by those who are phobic, disabled, bariatric and geriatric. I also sat on the board of dental therapists supporting the changes for Direct Access.

I would like my patients to feel listened to and understood so that I can help them feel enthused about their treatment.

Before dentistry, I worked as a beauty therapist for a major airline in upper class, this contributed to my love of travel and health spas! I love all sport and regularly do Pilates, yoga or long country walks. I’m always looking for a good book so any suggestions from my patients are graciously received!
