Thomas Norlin

General and Cosmetic Dentist, Implantologist (GDC 74192)
Dental Surgeon DDS, Odont Lic., Diploma in Halitosis.
  • General dentistry.
  • Implantology.
  • Cosmetic dentistry.
  • Halitosis.
  • Functional jaw orthopaedics and orthognathics.


Thomas joined a private practice in Surrey in 1998 and decided early in his career to focus on the aesthetic rehabilitation of the teeth and bite, without using amalgam or metals.

In 2000 he finished training as an implant surgeon and since then has spent most of his time with general, cosmetic and implant dentistry.

Realising that his view of patient focus and forward-thinking dentistry was not compatible with the corporate dental practices he worked for, Thomas decided to start Esthetique Dental to be able to give the best care that is achievable.

Thomas is now focusing fully on clinical dentistry and is dedicated to delivering the best private dentistry for all ages.

Thomas' hobbies include cooking good food (and eating it!), travelling the world and skiing.

“I like to be proud of my work, but most importantly I like patients to be proud of their teeth.”
