VIDA Dentist, Clinical Director and overall Clinical Lead, Practice owner
Specialist Interests: Implants, tooth straightening including Invisalign
Currently Clare is preparing for examination at the Royal College of Surgeons of England for a Diploma in Implant Dentistry and Advanced Certificate in Implants, following in the footsteps of Dr McInerney who founded the practice as an implant referral centre over 20 years ago.
Dr McInerney and Clare work very closely on many implant cases at VIDA. 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.
Contact us by email or telephone for a free, no obligation consultation with Clare to discuss how VIDA dentistry can help you improve your dental health and confidence.
Dr Peter Baillon has high quality family dental care etched in his mind. As the father of three young boys, he understands the role every Dentist plays in raising a generation whose dental health exceeds the generation that went before, as well as caring for those generations who have experienced a different style of dentistry, and are faced with higher maintenance mouths as a consequence.
Peter is committed to private dentistry, and has over 16 years of private practice experience. Peter’s passion is bringing the convenience of patient-friendly technology, such as digital scanning, into general practice. Peter was the first dentist in the Channel Islands to use scanning instead of traditional impressions when making dental crowns.
Peter’s belief that technology should drive high standards in general dental care sits comfortably at VIDA, where we are continuing a long history of high quality dentistry, known for our ability to provide more technically advanced solutions to every day problems.
Peter is available on Saturdays and Fridays at VIDA, which are popular times for families and those requiring dental care outside their normal working hours
Special Interests: Implants and grafting
John’s passion for dental implants is second to none. John is extremely highly regarded within Hampshire and the UK dental profession as one of the first dentists in the UK to place dental implants. With 30 years of expertise, the practice accepts referrals from dentists across the South for dental implants and advanced sinus surgery.
John is much loved by his patients and his calm, reassuring manner puts new patients at ease. John often sees patients who feel their problems are too great for any dentist to manage, yet in his long career he has helped many who have previously thought they were beyond help or rehabilitation.
