Nicholas Byfield

Dr Nicholas Byfield Graduated from Kings University and has worked with us since last year. “I knew from an early age that I wanted a career in health care as medicine and surgery had always sparked a huge interest in me. After completing an Adult Nursing BSc and experiencing most areas of medicine, I found my direction in Head and Neck medicine and in particular dentistry. For both of my degrees, I studied at Kings College London from the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers and experts.
I enjoy most the restorative and cosmetic aspects of dentistry with my mindset always in the most conservative methods. Minimally invasive dentistry when appropriate will forever be the best approach.”
“Over the last 5 years, I have combined the empathy, encouragement and care from my nursing and the precision, skill and understanding of anatomy from dentistry to find a love and successful career in facial aesthetics. I trained initially at the esteemed Derma Medical Academy and have worked alongside one of the world’s leading facial aesthetics doctors in one of Europe’s best clinics. It is a privilege and a joy to help patients improve their confidence but always in the most subtle and natural ways.”
