The Dentists

Benjamin Dean
BDS Practice Principal

Benjamin Dean BDS Practice Principal

Ben graduated from Liverpool university in 2001.

He prides himself on having a calm assured manner and providing the best possible care for patients.

Having spent several years working in a busy NHS practice Ben became involved in the training of newly qualified dental students as a Vocational Trainer in the Mersey Deanery. This has greatly helped him to keep up-to-date with the ever changing techniques and materials used in Dentistry.

Since then extensive work in a mixed practice has developed his knowledge and skills needed for more complex private treatments whilst still having his focus mainly on prevention.

Ben lives in Chester with his Wife Sarah and 2 young Children. He relaxes by playing guitar and is a self confessed “sportaholic” with a
particular love for cricket and rugby.

Eleanor O’Brien

Eleanor O’Brien BChD MJDF RCS (Eng)

Eleanor qualified at Leeds Dental Institute in 2000. After graduating she expanded her Oral Surgery experience by attending Halifax Hospital to complete a post graduate course in the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. After a few years working in general practice in West Yorkshire, Eleanor and her husband Paul decided to expand their horizons and set off on an around the world trip. Whilst in Australia they gained experience working in a Community Clinic. On their return to the UK they quickly settled and Eleanor has worked in general practice ever since. Eleanor joined the practice in 2011.

Eleanor has completed advanced restorative and cosmetic courses. She continued her education and became a member of The Royal College of Surgeons on completing the MJDF Post Graduate Examination in 2009. She is also a member of the British Dental Association.

Due to requests in Eleanor’s previous practice, she trained in facial aesthetics, learning both Botox and Dermal fillers. These types of treatment involve the facial nerves and muscles and as the only profession to learn these areas in fine detail, patients felt it was safer in a dentist’s hand.

Eleanor and Paul have two small children and a black Labrador. She enjoys an active lifestyle playing netball and enjoying the great outdoors. She is perfecting the art of being a shopaholic and practising her baking.
