Usha Singanayagam Dentist

Usha qualified as a dentist in 1993 from Liverpool University. She has worked in Milton Keynes for over 15 years and even established her own practice in the area. During this time she has built a strong rapport with her patients. She decided last year to focus purely in treating patients rather than splitting her time between running her practice and being a practising dentist.

She therefore made the decision to join us at Rapport Dentistry to allow her more time to spend with her patients. Usha particularly enjoys carrying out restorative dentistry on patients as well as treating children. She believes by teaching children at a young age about oral hygiene can lead to prevention in dental problems later on in life, as well as help break down any potential dental phobias.
