Dr Dorothy Riley - Practice Principal

I have worked in general dental practice since 2009 and enjoy providing all aspects of dental treatment. Prior to 2009, I obtained my postgraduate diploma with distinction in Dental Clinical Sciences from Queen Mary University of London. I also successfully completed the examinations allowing me to attain the Diploma of Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MFDSRCS). I subsequently spent two years as a maxillofacial and oral surgery senior house officer in North Bristol and East Kent.

I am particularly passionate about providing comprehensive dental treatment that is directed at the whole individual and not just their mouths. I have special interests in Orthodontics (straightening crooked teeth) , Periodontics (gum problems), Inman aligner treatment (straightening front teeth) conservative cosmetic dentistry especially using adhesive (bonding) techniques and working with people who haven't been confident enough to see a dentist for a long time. I do my utmost to help such patients deal with their dental anxieties while improving their dental situations. 

I have completed a Master's degree in Advanced General Dental Practice from Kings College London. 

I am a member of the British Dental Association and the British Orthodontic Society. I am also a registered Inman Aligner provider.
I look forward to welcoming all patients to Dover Priory Dental with a smile!
