Mr Mark Vernon

Job Title:
Mark was born in Hitchin in 1977. He studied dentistry at Leeds University and qualified in 2000. After a year in general practice in Hertford he returned to Leeds as a Maxillo-facial Senior House officer and gained a wealth of experience in the fields of medicine, facial trauma and mouth cancer as well as oral surgery. Following on from this he was awarded his membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal college of Surgeons. Mark worked in Welwyn Garden City and Hampstead before joining the practice in 2005, having taken over from his mother Mary Vernon.

Mark greatly enjoys teaching undergraduate dental students at Barts and the London Dental Institute. He is a clinical lecturer, a post he has held for 5 years. In this role he is responsible for the clinical teaching of final years dental students and demonstrates clinical techniques such as crown preparation and root fillings to younger years. Mark also lectures on implants to both undergraduates and postgraduates.

Mark has a special interest in Dental Implants and has acquired much experience in this field. He has been placing and restoring implants for the past 6 years and has trained at both the University of London and the Royal College of Surgeons. He provides a referral service for other dentists, managing both simple and advanced cases.

Dr Tim Vernon

Job Title:
Tim qualified from Sheffield Dental School alongside Mary Vernon in 1967. He and Mary acquired the practice soon after and have enjoyed caring for their patients throughout these years. Tim has always developed the services of the practice keeping pace with the advances in dentistry. Tim has a wealth of experience in all aspects of dentistry.

25 years ago Tim introduced an orthodontic service to the practice and maintains an orthodontic contract with the local primary care trust. Tim treats children on the NHS for orthodontics and adults privately.

A new and exciting recent development is Invisalign , an invisible form of orthodontics. It is particularly suitable for adults looking to straighten there front teeth without wanting to have a fixed brace. Though many dental practices provide Invisalign or the like, the principles remain that of orthodontics, and as such require a deep and thorough knowledge of orthodontics. In our view, it is important to enquire as to a dentists’ orthodontic experience when looking for such treatment. Given Tim has many years of complex orthodontic experience he is able to advise and treat all cases.

Dr Mike De Nooijer

Job Title:
Mike qualified as a dentist at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and moved to the UK in 1990. Mike has been in general practice in Letchworth for the past 20 years and has joined our practice in 2015. Mike plays an active part on the local dental committee which has important roles in implementing dentistry in the region. He is committed to on going professional development and has completed a Diploma in General Dental Practice (MFGDP) at the Royal College of Surgeons UK in 1997. Mike has a post graduate certificate in dental Law and ethics which he is continuing with to achieve an MSc. Mike also works part time in the orthodontic department at the Lister Hospital. He is a keen sportsman both playing and umpiring cricket.
