Staff Corner


You may have noticed some new faces on a recent visit o the clinic and we would like to formally welcome Dr Tom Wauchope and Silvia Flores to the Dental Wellness Team.


Dr Tom Wauchope

Tom has been with Dental Wellness since March and has a passion for holistic principles in the Dental field. He has an affinity with young children and became a father himself earlier this year. Tom has exceptionally high standards with the dentistry he performs and, following the guidelines set down by Dental Wellness, Tom has taken on further postgraduate training in Conscious Sedation. We are pleased to now be able to offer this to patients of all ages. The use of “Happy Gas” enables the Practice to offer an option that in most cases does not require a referral for a general anaesthetic.

Tom has a keen interest in the use of Ozone in Dentistry. A non-invasive way of treating tooth and gum disease. He is aware of the importance of correct breathing during the day and night whether it be children or Adults. Early next year he will be training in the use of Myofunctional appliances and, in conjunction with the breathing retraining course, will be looking forward to optimising the smile and jaw development of our young patients.


Silvia Flores

Silvia is our new Oral Health Therapist. She has over 20 years of dental experience and has a special interest in the breathing retraining discipline known as Butekyo.

Having trained under the guidance of Roger Price (CEO, Breathing Well) we are excited to be offering classes in re breathing training in 2015. Nasal breathing is essential for good health. Mouth breathing can lead to over breathing which has been linked to asthma, headaches, high blood pressure and many inflammatory illness as well as gum disease and crooked teeth.

Silvia has a wonderful gentle approach to hygiene and oral therapy and we are delighted to have her onboard.
