About us

Catherine Kershaw B.Ch.D Hons 1989

GDC No. 64956

Catherine qualified from Leeds University in 1989. She spent 2 years working at Leeds General Infirmary gaining further experience in oral surgery and then travelled to the Northwest Territories of Canada to treat the Innuit Communities. When the temperature reached -60°c she came home!

Since 1992 she has worked in general dental practice and taught oral surgery part time at Leeds Dental Institute.

Catherine is absolutely passionate about her work and her philosophy is to treat her patients as she would want to be treated herself.

She believes that the simple act of listening is one of the most valuable clinical and diagnostic tools and she will spend as much time as you need talking through concerns, explaining procedures and putting you at ease.


Laura Musgrove BDS LDS RCS 1982

GDC No. 56957

Laura qualified from Sheffield University in 1982. She went on to do specialist training in oral surgery at Sheffield Dental Hospital and Nottingham`s Queens and City Hospitals.

Since 1984 she has worked in general practice and taught oral surgery at Leeds Dental Institute.

Laura prides herself in delivering work of the highest standard and building great levels of trust with her patients.

She is often to be found with her nose in a dental magazine, ensuring she keeps up to date with the most recent advances dentistry has to offer, but she is happiest when the preventative advice she has given means that no treatment is needed!
