Dr Suresh Somasundaran
At Andrew Browns Dental Practice we understand that having an oral surgery procedure can be an extremely nerve racking and worrying experience. Our oral surgeon Suresh is especially equipped in dealing with nervous and anxious patients and is on hand, alongside Andrew and his team to help you through every step of your oral surgery appointment. Our aim is to make your procedure as smooth and pain free as possible.
Suresh has been practicing oral surgery for over 13 years. He completed 3 years of residency in Oral Surgery and obtained a Masters degree MDS in OMFS in India and moved to UK in 2005 for further training in Oral Surgery. Since then Suresh has worked in several hospitals in the UK including Royal London Hospital and Barnet General Hospital. Suresh now primarily works at Derriford in their Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department but takes one afternoon a month to run a private clinic at our Tavistock Practice.
Sometimes a dental practice may suggest a referral to your local hospital for minor oral surgery procedures, such as tooth extractions. On some occasions, a hospital referral can be avoided and the procedure can be done on a private basis, under local anaesthetic by a highly skilled oral surgeon at an independent dental practice.
If you have been advised you will need a referral to your local hospital for any oral surgery procedures or dental treatment and wish to find out more about your options please contact us and we will be happy to talk to you in more detail about what we can offer you.
