Chris Rosser

BDS, DPDS
GDC: 61733

Chris graduated from Manchester Dental School in 1986 and won the prize award that year for clinical excellence. Chris later gained a three-year diploma in Post Graduate Dental Studies, graduating in 2002 from Bristol University.

Chris joined Green Park Dental Practice in April 1991 as a partner and is still very happy here. From 1994 - 1997 he was registered vocational dental practice trainer for new graduates leaving dental school and found this very rewarding.

Chris practices all aspects of dentistry but has particular interests in Cosmetic dentistry which includes teeth whitening (www.britesmile.co.uk) Invisalign Orthodontics (www.invisalign.co.uk) which is straightening teeth with clear, nearly invisible braces and restoring teeth with Cosmetic Crowns and Bridges. He also works with specialists to restore missing teeth with Implants (www.straumann.co.uk) where appropriate. If health of the gums is poor then cosmetic dentistry will be of limited benefit, so another area of interest is periodontal disease. He works closely with the hygienists at the practice to ensure that the gums are maintained in as healthy condition as possible.

Outside dentistry, he enjoys playing tennis and keeping fit. He supports Bath Rugby regularly through all their trials. Chris has three young boys so they do keep him busy and active. If he has any spare time left, he enjoys a nice glass of wine to help him relax.

Melanie Daykin

BDS University of Manchester 1991
GDC: 67135

Melanie qualified at Manchester Victoria University in 1991. She spent the next 12 years developing skills in and around sunny Manchester before venturing south to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Stints in Henley and Swindon followed, adding further experience of both paediatric and geriatric dental care.

Practicing in all areas of general dentistry for over 30 years, she is a keen advocate of MI (minimal intervention) with extensive experience (since 2006) of using air abrasion instead of a rotary drill for removal of decay; it’s a revelation compared with conventional dentistry and greatly favoured by patients.

Alongside this, Melanie prefers a Bioclear system (since 2018) for optimal composite filling technology, which is also coincidentally currently being adopted for teaching in Manchester.

Outside of work, Melanie is a big fan of murder mysteries whether it be book or film from classics (Christie – Poirot or Marple) to contemporary (Osman, Horowitz), but also enjoys cooking with her daughter and meeting the never satisfied needs of Linus the cat.
