Principal Dental Surgeon
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!

Hi! I’m Erika. I am an apprentice dental nurse. I started at Holly House, just before the lockdown in March. I persevered with the theory aspect of my dental course during the lockdown and now I am carrying out the practical side of my chosen career, and loving it!

Business Development & Operations Manager
Hi! I am Mr Hassan. I am the Business Development & Operations Manager at Holly House Dental Practice. The practice has evolved a great deal over the last few years, this has required a lot of behind the scenes planning and then executing! It is lovely to hear the overwhelmingly positive feedback we receive from our patients about our developments.
I am also responsible for the IT support at Holly House. You may notice that the practice is very hi-tech, this also means high-maintenance, by me! I enjoy keeping everyone, online and able to provide the excellent dental treatment our patients are used to.
Hi! I’m Dr Hemal. I like to work to improve the aesthetics of your smile. This may include, aligning the teeth with Invisalign clear braces, composite edge bonding or crowns and veneers. If you have few or no teeth, then I take a keen interest in providing highly cosmetic, functional, bespoke dentures.

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.
I am also co-founder of Perio Matters, this allows me to be involved with teaching and the further education of colleagues.
Outside of work, I have been known to complete physical challenges such as London Marathon and Tough Mudder!
Hi, I’m Dr Tom Dennis. I came to complete my foundation dental training with Dr Sarah, 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!
Hi, I’m Natalie. I first came to Holly House, many years ago, soon after becoming a hygiene/therapist and I have stayed with the amazing team, ever since! I now work across both sites, Bosden Farm Dental Practice and Holly House Dental Practice!
I have had the pleasure of being a part of a constantly evolving practice. This allows me to develop and provide the most up to date care that I can. You may see me for therapy, fillings and gum treatments or for hygiene requirements, on a Thursday or a Friday.
Outside of work, I love to travel. Most recently I have gained a scuba diving license while in the Middle East!
Hi! I’m Claire. I am the Practice Manager at Holly House. I have been a part of the Holly House team since 2014, when Dr Sarah became owner of Bosden Farm Dental Practice, in Offerton, our sister practice. I have been assisting Dr Sarah with the development of both sites. I am involved with providing training to our dental nurses and in ensuring the safe and smooth running of the practices. This also involves paperwork and policies!
I have been working closely with Our Specialist Periodontist, Dr Khurrum, and we have become a centre for outside referrals from other practices in the area, when they require their patients to have Specialist Gum Disease Treatments. I am also now coordinating Implant treatments with Dr Khurrum, and Cosmetic & Invisalign treatments with Dr Hemal and Dr Nicole. They keep me busy!
