BDS MFGDP (UK) Dip Rest RCS EngGDC Number: 79190

I am the Principal Dental Surgeon and Owner of Holly House Dental Practice.


I Graduated as a Dental Surgeon with several awards, including best dental student of the year, from the University of Manchester. I have completed further qualifications, including MFGDP(UK), Dip Rest Dent RCS Eng and gained a Masters Degree in Restorative Dentistry. I have taught at the University of Manchester, my students included my sister and brother-in-law (who now have a practice of their own) and my brother (now a Specialist Periodontist). I have been an Educational Supervisor for several newly qualified dentists, supporting them and relaying my experience in easing them into practice life. I enjoy my work and my enthusiasm reflects in my practice.

New patients are often surprised at how stress-free their dental check has been, our existing patient of course already know this! It’s always a pleasure to catch-up with my patients as well as reassuring them about their dental health.

I want to improve the dental health of my patients’, I reinforce the importance of regular dental care. I also make my patients aware of the advances in our profession and the ways in which this may benefit them. I have a clinical team of caring individuals, who share a highly ethical, professional and responsible attitude to their work and I am confident in referring my patients to them for Advanced or Specialist care. It’s great that we can offer so many options to our patients.

I have really enjoyed developing Holly House, into the Fantastic Dental Practice and the fantastic Dental Team we have today! I want to keep improving our patients’ experience of their time at Holly House and I know my team share my vision!

Specialist PeriodontistGDC Number: 177177

Hi, I’m Dr Khurrum Hussain. I completed my Specialist training in Periodontology at the World-renowned Eastman Dental Institute, University College London (UCL). I am registered on the GDC’s Specialist list for Periodontics and also with the European Federation of Periodontics (EFP).

I have worked in Specialist practices limited to Periodontics for several years. I am a Clinical Teacher at undergraduate and postgraduate level at the University of Manchester Dental Hospital.

My ethos is to treat patients with periodontal challenges. I aim to educate and motivate patients about this condition and I have excellent results with my periodontal care, and also in the management of PERI-IMPLANT disease.

Many of my patients have severe gum disease, or failing implants, and are finding it difficult to manage their condition. I help them to make difficult decisions about the prognosis of their teeth or implants and help them to overcome their anxieties. I provide solutions resulting in health and combat the progression of disease.

I also provide cosmetic gum surgeries to assist with restorative work that may require recontouring of your gums, mucogingvial surgery

The team at Holly House are very supportive and will help you at every stage of your Specialist treatment. Holly House, really is at the cutting edge, as I also accept patients here, for Specialist Periodontal Treatment, from other local practices.

Hello, I’m Joanne. I have been at Holly House Dental Practice for nearly 27 years! Yes I was very young when I started and I have been the first point of contact for many of our patients over the years. In some cases I know of 4 generations of the same family attending our practice, which is truly wonderful.

Anyone who knows me can tell that I really enjoy my job, and I am thrilled to enter this new modern era of Dentistry at Holly House. I am so pleased that our patients, whether they are new to us or have grown up with us, are now able to access a huge range of treatments all under one roof! Our Dentists, Specialist Clinicians, Hygienists, Treatment Coordinators and Dental Nurses are not only brilliant at their job, but they are also a truly great bunch of people to work with. Patients love telling me about how impressed they are with our new makeover at the practice, and how happy our team is ….and of course, happiness is contagious!

During that time Dr Hussain and I even managed to synchronise our maternity leave together!

I have evolved in my dental nurse role over the years. I am lucky to be surrounded by such supportive and motivational team members. Being a local girl, I am also familiar with many of our patients’ and enjoy a catch up at their check-ups!

Dr Thomas G Dennis

Dental Surgeon

Hi, I’m Dr Tom Dennis. I came to complete my foundation dental training with Dr Sarah Hussain, a few years ago. I had a great experience being a part of such a committed team and was able to really enjoy the career I had worked so hard to attain. My professional and ethical views mirrored that of the practice and so I was delighted when they were able  to offer me a position to continue working with them. I now work at Holly House on Saturdays, during the week I am pursuing further training aspirations in restorative dentistry and work at Leeds Hospital. Working in Practice and in hospital, gives me a very rounded insight into many dental issues, which I can work with my patients to resolve. My enthusiasm for my work is self-evident and I can often be found discussing the latest research and advances in our field.

Outside of work I like to keep fit, golfing in the summer, skiing in the snow, and running whatever the weather!

Ms Louise Anderson

Hygiene Therapist

Hi, I’m Louise. I will see you for your regular hygiene visits. We will discuss your oral hygiene routines and ensure you are using the correct brushes, pastes and mouthwashes for your mouth. Everyone is different and requires tailor-made advice to keep your gums disease free.

If you have suffered from gum issues, I will deliver the gums treatments required to help get your gums back to health. This means stronger, healthier gums, firmer, cleaner teeth and a fresh mouth.

We are very luck at Holly house to be able to refer you to our Periodontal (Gum disease) Specialist Dr Khurrum Hussain, if you are suffering from severe gum problems.

Outside of work, I lead a very active life. Ask me about swimming in shark infested oceans!
