Indra studied Dentistry in The Netherlands at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Her main subjects were Cosmetic Dentistry and Advanced/Special Dentistry. She received her Masters degree with distinction (Tandarts examen Cum Laude) in 2004. After working as a Cosmetic Dentist in a prestigious dental clinic in the Netherlands for six years, Indra was ready for a new challenge.
She moved to Northumberland to live with her partner Hendrik and set up her own practice. Her dream was to create a unique practice which is modern and comfortable, where state-of-the-art techniques are combined with excellent patient care. We think that definitely worked out well!
Not only did the practice and her team become multiple award winners under her leadership, Indra herself won the Best Dentist Award at The North East Beauty Awards 2019. She was previously also shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Young Dentist of the North East for the UK Dentistry Awards 2010, 2011 and 2012!
Indra carries out a full spectrum of treatments from Aesthetic Dentistry, Surgical Implantology and Bone Regeneration procedures to full mouth rehabilitation and Facial Aesthetics in her own practice. She is not phased by the complexity of treatments that might be needed and through careful diagnosis is able to predict treatment plans for long-term stability. The patient plays a key part in the decision making as, whenever possible, multiple treatment plans will be extensively discussed, if needed, to make sure you can choose what is best for you within your planned budget.
Indra is committed to continuing professional development to stay at the forefront of the ever developing world of dental technology. She has been trained by the leading professionals in their fields all over the world, including Advanced Implantology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University, both in Boston, USA. She has completed several year-long courses, including the Restorative Course, the Cosmetic and Aesthetic Course, the Phantom Head Course and the Implantology Course with the famous Prof. Paul Tipton. Indra developed a special interest in wrinkle reducing treatments when doing Expert training in Non Surgical Facial Aesthetics (BTX, Dermal Fillers and Rejuvenation & Lifting PDO-threads) at the Prof. Bob Khanna Training Institute.
She received her training in Short Term Orthodontics (quick braces for straightening teeth) from the country's leading STO dentists and is a certified provider for the Invisalign system and other providers. She was trained by the world renowned Dr. Jason Smithson in Direct Composite Resin Artistry and Minimally Invasive All Ceramic Restorations.
