PATIENTS in Dewsbury are all smiles after two new dentists joined a long-established practice.
Roger Elia and Usmaan Majid are filling the gap left by husband and wife team Colin and Judith Best at the Dewsbury Dental Centre.
They retired from the Halifax Road practice last month after 30 years of dedicated service.
Dewsbury-born Usmaan did his work placement there while studying at the Plymouth University schools of medicine and dentistry.
He said: “Joining the team at Dewsbury Dental Centre is a very exciting step in my professional career.”
Frenchman Roger, who has lived in the UK for 10 years, is a specialist in facial rejuvenation and wrinkle relaxation.
He said: “I’m keen to ensure every patient receives the personalised care and attention needed to make each visit an enjoyable experience.”
Principal dentist Nick O’Donovan said: “We’re delighted to welcome Roger and Usmaan to the team.
“We felt it important to appoint two community-minded dentists to join the team and we feel fortunate in having found them.”
Mr Best added: “We’d like to thank the practice team and all our patients for their loyalty and friendship over the years.
“We wish them all the best and believe people are in the very capable hands of Nick and the new dentists.”
