Dr Brian Needham BDS Peninsula Dental School
2014 GDC number 251822
Brian particularly enjoys treating anxious dental patients and has a keen interest in providing sedation, thus empowering people to overcome barriers to treatment.
Brian is a Dental Phobia Certified dentist (Click Here to verify) and a SAAD mentor. His plans for the future are to qualify in the use of hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapies, further widening the range of techniques he is able to offer.
Brian came to dentistry later in life graduating from Peninsula Dental School in 2014 aged 50 years. This was following careers with HM Forces (serving with H.M Scots Guards as a medic during the first Gulf war of 1991) and then Paramedicine where he went on to become an Emergency care Practitioner.
Outside of work Brian is happily married with two teenage girls and enjoys Pike angling, painting acrylics on canvas and walking his two much loved Dogs Basil and Mary.
More recently he has developed a keen interest in astro photography and hopes to display a sample of his work in his surgery.
