Jamie Justin Pugh
Principal Dentist and Company Director
BDS Hons (Wales) 1996
GDC Reg No. 71733

Jamie qualified from Cardiff Dental School in 1996. Following completing his Vocational Training in a practice in Cardiff he did jobs in hospital in oral surgery and practices in Swansea and Aberdare before opening his own practice in Aberdare in 2001.

Jamie felt in was important for the practice to have an effective prevention philosophy in order to empower patients to look after their own mouths and give them the techniques that will enable them to enjoy all the benefits of healthy teeth and gums.

He was also very aware of how a nice smile can affect confidence and improve lives and has therefore spent a lot of time with some of the best dentists in the world pursuing the knowledge and techniques that can transform a smile and bringing them back to Aberdare. He’s had the privilege of spending time and learning from Ash Parmar of Essex and Embarrassing Bodies TV programme, Larry Rosenthal of New York, Galip Gurel of Istanbul(thought by many to be the best dentist in the world), Mike Wise of London, Frank Spear of Arizona to name but a few.

He ensures he keeps constantly updated on any procedure that will benefit patients dental health or appearance and that the whole team are prepared to help patients to the best of their ability.
