Meet Dr ‘Calm & Caring’ Andy

I have a particular interest in Gentle, Straight Teeth Dentistry. I aim to treat all patients with care, and I pride myself on providing treatment that my own family would be happy with. I can’t think of a better feeling than sending a patient away smiling and laughing.

Meet Dr ‘Calm & Caring’ Bruce

Meet Dr ‘Calm & Caring’ Bruce

I’m Bruce. When I’m not in the surgery I am kept busy (very!) by my family which includes my wife and our three small children. We spend our weekends outdoors either on the beach where I am learning to surf (not very well yet!), or taking the kids camping both in Wales and further afield. I enjoy travelling and listening to music (hello Spotify!), and relaxing with a beer at the end of the week. I am a massive Man Utd fan although unfortunately the glory days seem to be over… for now!

My experience ranges from hospital and community dentistry, treating phobic patients, to general practice. I pride myself on listening carefully to my patients needs and concerns, before agreeing the right course of treatment. I have a particular interest in orthodontic and cosmetic work, because I know the difference a great smile can make to a person’s confidence.

Meet Dr ‘Calm & Caring’ Kasim

Meet Dr ‘Calm & Caring’ Kasim

I’m Kas. I was born and raised in Cardiff and got married last year. I love going to the movies, going out for dinner (I’m still learning to cook!) and meeting up with friends. I’m a regular meditator and feel it really helps me to connect better to myself and others.

I started my working life as a pharmacist, but was looking for a career where I could have more of a hands on impact in improving people’s lives. I then studied dentistry at King’s College London and I’ve loved every moment since!

My background helps me provide holistic care to my patients and I understand the value of really being listened to. For me it’s not just about treating teeth, it’s about understanding and addressing the individual needs of everyone I see.

 

Meet The Rest of The Team

Meet The Calm & Caring Team, Cheryl Jones – Practice Manager

painfreedentistcardiff

As a wife, mother and grandmother I enjoy spending time with my family, socialising, eating out, walking my very large dog Ella, going to the rugby and skiing. (Even though I am partial to breaking things!) My career started as a trainee dental nurse in private and NHS practice in Barry before moving to community dental nursing role and then to London to work as a dental nurse in Harley Street. I then managed pubs and restaurants with my husband for a few years before leaving to look after our children.

When I returned to the workplace I had a number of roles from a buyer in a new hospital to an estate agent. I returned to nursing about 19 years ago and started working with Andy 15 years ago. I was thrilled when Andy asked me to join him with his new venture at Advance Dental Care and I am proud to be part of a caring practice that has flourished and diversified to what you see today.

The most enjoyable parts of my job are helping our patients feel at ease, relaxed and comfortable during their visit. I love seeing patients happier and more confident with their smiles after their course of treatment. 

 

Meet Calm & Caring Dental Therapist – Diane Lock

Outside of work I am a keen member of my local community and traders committee and enjoy organising events for residence and local charities. I also enjoy interfering in the running of my family “child care” business and spending my free time running around after my young children.

I qualified as a dental hygienist at University Hospital of Wales in 1999, and then progressed my education to qualify as a dental therapist in 2000.

I continue to work in both NHS and private sectors of dentistry and am involved in the campaign to promote and raise awareness of dental therapists and their treatment/care that they can provide.

Cheryl says…”I have two gorgeous little boys who keep me busy outside of work and love spending time with my family and fur babies. I have two dogs and enjoy long walks as well as socialising and bike riding. I started work within dentistry as a dental nurse on Harley Street, London.

I found my main interest in dentistry was how to prevent diseases with excellent oral hygiene. I trained in Cardiff in 2003 and gained a diploma in dental hygiene. I enjoy my role, helping patients to maintain their teeth for life. I take a great interest in treating periodontal conditions and achieving excellent results. I also enjoy teaching patients about dietary facts and maintaining healthy enamel”

I also enjoy going on holiday, socialising with friends and family, exploring different cities, and skiing – although this might have to be put on hold for a while as I have a little one on the way!

I trained as a dental nurse at the University Dental Hospital and qualified in 2014 before working in a dental practice in Cardiff, where I met Andy. I then came over and joined the team at Advance Dental Care. I love being part of the calm and caring team and enjoy seeing the difference we make to our patients.

When I am not in work I enjoy playing with my makeup collection, throwing weights around the gym and exploring the country with my boyfriend. My bucket list seems never ending but with such great patients I’m never in a rush to go away.

My family and I enjoy going to the cinema and for food when we all have some time together and I enjoy taking my boyfriend’s little sister to Porthcawl to go on the rides (only when it’s sunny of course!) I have recently qualified and absolutely love my job.

Seeing patients leaving the surgery happy makes me feel warm inside. I enjoy seeing patients being able to smile again. My job feels so rewarding and I cannot wait to expand my knowledge and be able to help more people. 

 

Meet Your Calm & Caring Dental Nurse, Aga

“I took nursing path in 2008 enjoying the challenge of study and this new tangent in my life. I qualified in 2009 with additional radiography degree following later. I always loved working with people.

During my youth I used organise and run art therapy workshops with children and adults. Life prove to be interesting giving me opportunities of work as a designer and double bass maker. I love travels, food, dancing, wielding a sword and dwelling in nature.

My dream is to visit Mongolia on horseback and shoot some arrows. It is nice to join Andy’s team as they all are kind and carrying and joyous people.”

 

Meet The Calm & Caring Team, Sarah Perkins – Dental Nurse

In my spare time, I like to keep fit and socialise with friends and family.

I have worked as a dental nurse for 12 years and get great satisfaction from my job. It is a great feeling to see previously nervous patients leave with a smile and new found ease with the dentist. It is important to us all at Advance Dental Care to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere so patients feel comfortable from the start. “I know that’s the type of place I’d like to walk into!”.

I have worked as a dental nurse for the last 10 years. I love my job making patients feel at ease and comfortable in the surgery. My main priority is seeing patients leave with a smile on their face which makes my job so rewarding.

I am looking forward to continuing my career and nursing development at Advance Dental Care.

After many years of deliberating I finally made the decision to do something about my smile. The dentist I had been with for many years was unable to help with implants and so I did some research. Advance Dental Care seemed to offer what I was looking for and so I made a free smile audit appointment with Andy. Andy offered me a detailed pain free, stress free plan which would fit in with my travel commitments, and so a year ago I went ahead with the treatment. It was exactly as Andy said it would be and I was treated with respect and kindness in a relaxed atmosphere It was all about me.I now have my smile and confidence back thanks to Andy and his team. I'm thrilled to have found a dental practice that I trust and I'm going nowhere else. I highly recommend Advance Dental Care. You guys are AMAZING 😀read more

I had been putting off the inevitable for many years but the situation was critical where I could only eat soft food because what few teeth I had left were loose and not long for my mouth. After looking at options in both the UK and abroad, I came across Advance Dentals website. The reviews were encouraging and the free consultation helped me make my first step. Andy advised mini implants but did discuss other options with their pros and cons. I took the plunge and could not have made a better decision. I required a fair amount of work but it was all done efficiently and with care. I endorse the pain-free ethic that this practice works to. The staff have all been brilliant but I must doff my cap to Andy. He has changed my life and restored my faith in dentists. Thankyou all so much.read more

After 15 years of being terrified of the dentist, I cracked a wisdom tooth and had no choice but to face my fear. I spent four months searching for a dentist and came across advanced dental care. I spent sometime reading up on them before finally summoning the courage to contact them.The reception team were really friendly and explained everything to me. I booked in to see Bruce and got an appointment and time slot to suit me. At my appointment, Bruce took time to put me at ease, understand my fears and phobias and talk me through everything before even getting in to the chair. Following my mouth audit, Bruce talked me through what was needed and the options avalibility. Being incredibly nervous I opted for sedation. I needed to have an extraction, two fillings and a scale and polish. I was expecting quite a large bill but was pleasantly surprised when Bruce talked me through the figures.I booked in my next appointment with reception. Prior to arriving for extraction day, the team contacted me twice to ask if I had any questions and see if I was still able to make the time.On extraction day I was incredibly nervous. Bruce put me at ease and we went at my pace. After he answered 101 of my questions, the sedation began.10 seconds in and I can’t remember a thing. I now have a healthy mouth and a couple of hilarious videos. Bruce gave my husband aftercare advice and made sure I was comfortable before leaving the practice. I honestly can’t thank Bruce enough for getting me through the process. Whilst I am not over my fear of dentistry, I am confident I have found a dentist in Bruce that I would trust with all my dentistry needs and that I will visit regularly. If you are a nervous patient and are looking for a dentist that will help you through it, look no further. Thanks team!read more

My children and I have seen Andy for years and just started seeing Bruce who has been just as welcoming and caring. We've been so well looked after medically and as people - can't recommend these guys highly enough.

As a person who has been terrified of the dentist since childhood, I have been able to become more at ease with the whole experience since meeting Bruce. He has been a huge support with helping me become more comfortable with the treatment I have needed, by going at my own pace and not making me feel uncomfortable or underpressure to agree to any of the treatment. The receptionist Angela was smiley, upbeat and also helped to make me feel more relaxed with being at the dentist.Over all the whole experience is much nicer than what I have previously had and I'm glad that I'm able to smile again, be painfree and not be so nervous when I'm there.read more

I have not been to see the dentist for a good 20 years but since I found Advance Dental Care I'm much happier.My dentist Bruce is very easy to feel comfortable around and very helpful with advice. I'm lucky that I've not had any dental problems in the past and that my teeth are quite stable in terms of not needing any treatment.I'm a keen fisherman and have a habit of biting my fishing line with my teeth, so asked Bruce if there is anything he could do for me to build my front teeth back up. He said it's easy to sort out and got me back to build them up and they look so much better. The shade match, the shape and the comfort of having the treatment done was brilliant, I definitely chose the right man! Thanks Bruce.read more

Upon retirement , changed my dentist from a Cardiff practice to Advance Dental Care when Andy first established this practice many years ago and have never regretted it . From its early days until the present , Andy & all his dentists together with supporting nurses & staff have , without fail , provided consistently excellent , sympathetic care from the initial welcome to any necessary treatment . My most recent dentist , Jaz together with supporting nurses has just completed somewhat lengthy treatment in his usual welcoming & calm manner carefully explaining all options & each aspect of treatment as it progressed - a young man undoubtedly a credit to the practice and his profession . Dare I say , it's a pleasure to go to the dentist !!!!!!!!!!read more

Hadn't been to a dentist for 25 years due to being so nervous about going to the dentist. Was immediately put at ease by all the staff there who are all very lovely and friendly. Dr Behrooz and his assistant were excellent with me while I was in the chair. Explained everything to me and helped me relax. Work was done with no pain at all. Not expensive either, very reasonable cost. But most of all everyone there is so nice it puts you more at ease. So much so that I look forward to my next appointment in December. I read the reviews like you are before going and was sceptical of course but all the reviews are 100% accurate. I recommend very highly especially if you are a nervous patient like myselfread more

If you have any reservations of visiting the Dentist, fear not. From the way you are greeted by the receptionists to the professional treatment you receive from the Dentist, you are made to feel calm and relaxed. Keep up the good work.

When I first came to this dentist with a very broken tooth, I hadn't seen any dentist for more than 20 years being very afraid of a dentist. As afraid as I was, I was made to feel welcome, comfortable and at ease in an environment which would naturally terrify me.The patience of the staff with my nervousness was (and still is) priceless. The treatment I received then was painless and Dr. Andy Nourish was so reassuring throughout. Not once was I made to feel stupid or pathetic.Since then I've been to see the Hygienist, Cheryl, numerous times and she is clear, honest, compassionate and very patient with me. My fear is now nowhere near what it was, but still being nervous she is great with me.I strongly recommend this dentist to anyone who has any fear of the dentist, for whom the sound of the drill or the smell of whatever it is dentist's offices smell of can drive you to panic.They're not cheap if you go private but without hesitation I say they are worth every penny.Every member of staff I've met here is awesome, bar none.Thank you all for your great work!read more
