Robert gained the Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies in 2001 and a primary homeopathic licence (dental) in 2003.

His move to Green Park Dental practice came in 2002 when Robert joined as a partner. Robert's professional interests include Teeth Whitening (In-surgery and home treatments) Cosmetic dentistry and Periodontology. He is a keen advocate of MI (Minimal Intervention) dentistry and believes in a holistic approach to dental care. He uses homeopathic remedies to complement his dental treatment and finds these particularly useful for anxious or nervous patients.

Robert also has an interest in Orthodontics and uses “invisible” braces and Inman Aligners for adults. To fulfil his continuing professional development commitment, Robert regularly attends postgraduate seminars and courses to keep up to date.

Outside of the surgery, Robert is a busy father of four boys. In his limited spare time, he pursues his creative side with drawing and painting and visits the theatre and cinema and pharmacy when possible. Robert has studied the martial art of Iaido (Japanese swordsmanship). He has been practising this art for over 20 years and is a 4th dan Black Belt instructor at a local club. He is also a keen cyclist and likes to take part in sportive events.

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.
