Hayley Hutton EDT

Dental Hygienist & Therapist | GDC No. 116401

Hayley HuttonHayley first began her dentistry career 10 years ago as a dental receptionist. As she developed a keen interest in dentistry she progressed through the ranks and has now gained a dual qualification in both dental hygiene and dental therapy. She graduated in 2007 from Queen Mary University of London and has split her time between Smiles by Hillside and another well established cosmetic dental practice. Under the guidance of two excellent teams she is looking forward to what the future holds.

Things Hayley enjoys doing most is educating patients on their oral health and working with them to achieve a level of understanding and good oral hygiene regime. This enables patients to maintain their oral health for themselves in between appointments.

Hayley also enjoys working with patients who have had extensive cosmetic treatment as they would have invested a lot of time and emotion into their smiles and therefore need to be able to work with her to keep everything as healthy as possible to maintain its longevity.

Terry MajithiaDr Tarun (Terry) Majithia, principle dentist of Smiles by Hillside since 1980, began his career in dentistry after graduation in 1972 from University College Hospital.  Completing his primary FDS coursework as the Royal College of Surgeons, he then pursued LDSRCS coursework at Royal Dental College at Leicester Square.  His first practice was established in London's famous Ladbrook Grove, with his second and third practices being located in Mill Hill and Colindale.

Embracing the importance of continued education and training, Dr Terry pursues skill update opportunities at every opportunity.  Over the years, he has expanded his skills set through coursework, seminars, and conferences on dental implantology, occlusion, veneers, porcelain bonding, and botox, learning from esteemed dentistry leaders such as the Larry Rosanhal Institute, the Munich Implant Conference, Implantologist expert - Dr Stephan Phelan, Andre Sadum in Paris, and Dr Bo Ibson of Santa Barbara, California.

Dr Terry believes excellence in dentistry is attainable with an extraordinary team of professionals.  To that end, he brought in associate Dr Rena Uberoi, who has been with the practice for nearly 20 years, and Dr Assaker, implantologist, who utilises advanced technologies in performing implants, bone grafting, sinus lifts, and root canal treatments.

Smiles by Hillside is Dr Terry – and Dr Terry is compassionate, highly advanced dentistry.
