Dr Tim Sunnucks
Tim Sunnucks and Rohan Rajasingham and are our two ‘endodontists’, which means that they specialise in root canal treatment. They are both recognised as specialists by the General Dental Council.
Like all their colleagues in the practice, they are dedicated to completing their treatments in a painless way – root treatment should be just as painless as any other dental treatment.
People are often apprehensive about root treatment, and it is true that without specialist skills it can be very difficult. As Tim and Rohan have years of experience and detailed knowledge the likelihood of successful treatment by them is very high.
They use specialist equipment which includes a microscope that magnifies 30 times so they can actually see what they are doing inside the tiny roots – this makes a huge difference to the outcome of the treatment.
Treatment is carried out with meticulous care and may involve one or more visits.
Tim qualified from the University of Bristol in 1988 after winning several prizes including the prestigious BDA medal. His post-graduate studies were at the Eastman Dental Institute in London.
Since completing his post-graduate studies, Tim has worked in private practices in London. He is very involved in endodontic and restorative post-graduate education and lectures regularly.
Tim sees patients on Monday afternoons.
