Dr Paul Copson BDS BSc RGN.
GDC REGISTRATION 67366
Qualified dentist since
Endodontics, Cosmetic Dentistry.
May 1976- Sept 1992 Kings College hospital
After qualifying as a nurse I decided my life long dream to be a Dentist could be achievable, so after going back to college to obtain A-levels, and working as a nurse to finance this, I applied to Guy's Hospital to train as a Dentist.
I flourished there and gained three end of year awards, and then went on to work at the Hospital in the crown and bridge department and the general anesthetic department where I gained lots of experience in extractions.
I then moved on to general practice and bought Old College Dental Surgery in February 1999, a practice which had been established since 1985.
I have tried to provide a relaxed setting while providing a high level of care. This has always been my ambition since wanting to become a Dentist.

I have worked in Dentistry since 1994 when I started out as a Dental Nurse, but decided after my training at Bristol Dental Hospital, that I wanted to be a Hygienist.
I started my training in London in 2000, where I gained both my Hygiene Diploma and a Dental radiography certificate.
I love my job and have gained a wealth of experienxce working in different Periodontal practices in London, Bath and Berkshire.
I enjoy meeting new patents and especially like the challenge of nervous patients, improving their oral hygiene and encouraging them to return regularly.....which they do!
My job is to educate patients in gum care and improve their oral hygiene to ensure their gum conditionis excellent for ever more.
I am a big fan of electric toothbrushes and encourage patients to use these over manual toothbrushes, I also teach and encourage patients on the imprtance of using dental floss as part of their daily routine.
