About Us

Dr Eda Franco

Dr Franco has a General Dental Degree followed by a Masters Degree in Paediatric Dentistry from the University of London. She always knew that her interest and skills were in Paediatrics. 

"My own initial contact with a dentist as a 5 year old was traumatic! My aim is to help your child in a relaxed and non-threatening way. Good dental care is achievable, and for me, there is nothing like the feeling when a returning patient jumps into the dental chair and opens their mouth before you are even ready."
