Melica Bastani

Hygienist | GDC Number: 273169

I’m Melica, I qualified from the University of Essex in August 2018 with a distinction in Oral Health Sciences. Dental hygiene is becoming more and more important due to the various discoveries linking our oral health to our general health. This is why we provide not only the best patient care but also, educate patients so that they can understand the importance of good oral health.

When I’m not being a tooth fairy, I spend my time socialising with friends (with some retail therapy) and going to the gym.
