Dr. Andrew Kalli

Dentist BDS (Hons) MJDF (RCS Eng)

Andrew qualified from Birmingham Dental Hospital with Honours and Distinction in Clinical Dentistry. He is passionate about his work and enjoys keeping up to date with the latest techniques, often travelling nationally and internationally for courses. In 2018, Andrew passed the postgraduate exam admitting him membership to the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Andrew is popular with nervous patients as he prides himself on ensuring that each dental visit is a positive experience. He has a particularly minimal and respectful approach to managing patient’s dental needs. For advanced procedures, Andrew is qualified to offer IV sedation which allows many aspects of dentistry to be done in a particularly comfortable and safe manner.

Being able to smile is life-changing. Andrew’s priority is for all his patients to be able to smile, chew and speak confidently. Andrew is prepared to boost a smile’s current beauty following further training in facial aesthetics and skin rejuvenation. Anti-wrinkle injections are offered as part of his daily practice.

Andrew reports a charity trip to Tanzania, Africa as one of his career highlights. During this 2 week project, the group of volunteers provided free dental treatment to children with dental decay in primary schools across two parts of the country.

Outside of dentistry, Andrew enjoys nature’s landscapes through countryside walks and park runs with friends and family.
