Tim Sunnucks is one of our two endodontists (specialising in root canal treatment), alongside Dr Rohan Rajasingham and is recognised as a specialist by the General Dental Council.
Like all his colleagues in the practice, Tim is dedicated to completing treatments in a painless way – root treatment should be just as painless as any other dental treatment.
People are often apprehensive about root treatment, and it is true that without specialist skills it can be very difficult. As our team of endodontists have years of experience and detailed knowledge, the likelihood of successful treatment by them is very high.
Our specialist team will use equipment which includes a microscope that magnifies by 30 times so they can actually see what they are doing inside the tiny roots – this makes a huge difference to the outcome of the treatment. Treatment is carried out with meticulous care and may involve one or more visits.
Tim qualified from the University of Bristol in 1988 after winning several prizes including the prestigious BDA medal. His post-graduate studies were at the Eastman Dental Institute in London where he was awarded an MSc with distinction. Since then, he has enjoyed working in private practices in London. He is very involved in endodontic and restorative post-graduate education and lectures regularly.
You can see Tim for an appointment at the practice on Monday afternoons.
