WHY CHOOSE US
Advances in understanding, design and materials, have brought VIDA dentures into a new era. At VIDA we are firmly committed to providing natural results with dentures and we have many patients who enjoy a full and happy social life whilst wearing VIDA dentures. Our attention to detail, our ability to identify challenges before they have become problems, and our exceptional technical support, all contribute to the success of VIDA denture options. Whether you are considering replacing old dentures, or thinking about having dentures for the first time, our team offer a complimentary appointment to discuss general considerations with you. Our denture team is led by Dr Brett Leftkowitz who is also able to combine implants with dentures where the extra security can not be gained form remaining teeth.

VIDA Dentist, Clinical Lead for Periodontics at VIDA
Special Interests: Periodontics (gum disease), Prosthodontics (rebuilding teeth), Dentures, Oral surgery, anxious patients
Brett is the VIDA dentist with a particular interest in gum problems, how to keep gums healthy and he heads up our experienced Gum Health team.
Brett qualified as a dentist in 1988 and has an impressive career as both a surgeon and a general dentist. His surgical skills are extensive and he worked as a Registrar in Maxillofacial and Oral surgery before taking the decision to devote his time to helping patients in general practice. His passion for surgery has helped him with management of challenging gum problems and also extensive tooth loss, as Brett is vastly experienced in replacing dentures with implants, or alternatively placing only a few implants to help stabilise troublesome full arch dentures. Brett is also an advocate of socket preservation, a technique that helps patients maintain shape in areas where they are having tooth extractions. There isn’t much Brett hasn’t studied in great depth, but what is most striking is that his primary focus is always the patient, what they want or need, and how his skills can be used to help them achieve it.
For particularly nervous patients, Brett’s gentleness and vast experience prove a winning combination. Many patients find their confidence in visiting the dentist returns once they’ve met him.
We are particularly excited to be working with Brett to increase our provision for dementia patients or those with associated concerns, both at homes and in care centres.

They share the belief that providing routine dentistry is the same privilege and honour as providing life changing dentistry, made possible by advances in dental implant science. Dr McInerney is focused on passing on his unique skill set and expertise to Clare to ensure the patients he has cared for over the past 30 years are in the very best hands for future years.
Clare’s passion is natural looking dentistry, replacing missing teeth with implants, and subtle tooth straightening to improve aesthetic harmony. Clare is also an advocate of socket preservation, a technique that helps patients maintain bone and shape in areas where they are having tooth extractions.
