Esthetique Dental Team

 

If you are looking for a new dentist in Shrewsbury, for general or cosmetic work, please say hello to our team below.

Thomas Norlin

General and Cosmetic Dentist, Implantologist (GDC No: 74192)

Bio

Dental Surgeon DDS, Odont Lic, Diploma in Halitosis,
ADI, ITI, BACD, BDA

  • Implantology
  • Cosmetic Dentistry
  • Halitosis

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, Thomas finished training as an implant surgeon and since then he has spent most of his time with general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. Realising his views of patient focus and forward-thinking dentistry were not compatible with the corporate dental practices he worked for, in 2013 Thomas decided to launch his own dental practice in Shrewsbury – Esthetique Dental – to offer the best possible dental care.

Now that the practice is well established in Shropshire, Thomas has scaled back his clinical time. His focus is on dental implants and complex cosmetic cases.

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.”

Hannah is very passionate about training and ongoing education and completed the Christopher Orr ‘Advanced Dental Seminar’ programme in Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry in 2015.

His nemesis is cling film!

“It takes a leap of faith to develop any relationship, and I hope that anyone who joins me in the clinic at Esthetique becomes aware of the admiration I have for them. I will endeavour to provide you with the treatment, support and engagement necessary to help you achieve your goals.”
