Indra Rampersad DDS, M(Tandarts)
Principal Dentist and Practice Owner
Indra studied Dentistry in The Netherlands at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Her main subjects were cosmetic dentistry and special dentistry. She received her Masters degree with distinction (Tandarts examen Cum Laude) in 2004.
After working as a cosmetic dentist in a prestigious dental clinic in the Netherlands for six years, Indra was ready for a new challenge. She moved to Northumberland to live with her partner Hendrik and set up her own practice. They had their fairy-tale wedding locally at Chillingham Castle and now have two beautiful boys, Oliver and Alexander. Indra feels very fortunate to live in this part of the world with her family, where she can enjoy the beautiful Northumbrian scenery every day!
Her dream was to create a unique practice which is modern and comfortable, where state-of-the-art techniques are combined with excellent patient care. We think that definitely worked out well!
Indra was shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Young Dentist of the North East for the UK Dentistry Awards 2010, 2011 and 2012!
She carries out a full spectrum of treatments from Aesthetic Dentistry, Surgical Implantology and Bone Regeneration procedures to full mouth rehabilitation in her own practice. She is not phased by the complexity of treatments that might be needed and through careful diagnosis is able to predictfully treatment plan for long-term stability. The patient plays a key part in the decision making as, whenever possible, multiple treatment plans will be extensively discussed, if needed, to make sure you can choose what is best for you within your planned budget.
