A procedure like Root Canal Treatment can be daunting, but our professional and highly experienced team will help you through the process sympathetically and efficiently.
WHY CHOOSE US
Our resident seditionist, Mr Sami Stagnell, is a Member of the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry (SAAD) and is Clinical Lead for Sedation at VIDA. Sami understands that sometimes a conversation is all that is needed to allay fears about treatment, and is very happy to explore your need or wish for sedation with a complimentary assessment appointment. We often see patients request sedation for specific problems they need to work through, or urgent treatment they simply must have, and then we are able to support with routine care without the need for repeat sedation afterwards. VIDA patients enjoy the peace of mind that sedation is simply there when, or if, they need it.

VIDA Oral Surgeon, Associate Specialist in Oral Surgery at East Grinstead Hospital and Clinical Lead for Sedation at VIDA.
Helen is our resident Oral Surgeon and Seditionist and undertakes the most complex surgical procedures at VIDA as well as more routine extractions. Additionally, Helen gained a Masters in Implant Dentistry from the University of London in 2007 and is well placed to understand the importance of preserving delicate bone and tissues around your teeth during a dental extraction. This particular skill is in great demand at VIDA where many of our extraction patients are hoping to proceed with implants at a later time, and will require adequate and healthy tissues around the socket to do so. Helen has a young family of two boys with her husband Jon, who works as an A&E Consultant at Worthing Hospital. In her spare time Helen enjoys tennis and training her new puppy, Bodicea.
Helen is Associate Specialist in Oral Surgery at East Grinstead Hospital where runs Consultant clinics, treating adults and children removing teeth and performing sedation and complex surgery of the mouth and teeth.
