We are very fortunate to have Dr Monica Neil as part of our team. She is a Specialist in Paediatric Dentistry, providing specialist high quality dental treatment for children and a hospital Consultant in Paedodontics at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London. Monica is currently accepting referrals and seeing new referred child patients here in our Stroud specialist dentist clinic.
Monica completed her Specialist training in Paediatric Dentistry at Guy’s Hospital, London, passing her Membership in Paediatric Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. She has also passed an MSc in Paediatric Dentistry with Merit from King’s College, London which has helped to ensure she is providing evidence based dentistry to an optimal standard. Her research has been published in internationally renowned journals including eight publications in the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry and she has been invited to lecture on her paediatric dental research across the world including Germany, Egypt and China. She has won multiple national and regional prizes including two prizes awarded by the British Dental Association. Monica has an interest in managing children who are anxious or have behavioural problems or special needs and can provide Inhalation Sedation effectively to help patients relax if this is required. She is experienced in managing dental trauma, aesthetically restoring traumatised anterior teeth and paediatric endodontics including use of MTA. She routinely restores carious teeth providing pulp therapy and preformed metal (“stainless steel”) crowns if required, takes radiographs of children as required and provides specialist care for children with medical problems, hypoplastic teeth and hypodontia. Monica also works for the specialist services in Surrey where she currently treats children under General Anaesthetic if required and is the Paediatric Dentist on the Multidisciplinary team for children with Cleft Lip and/or Palate at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
If you are a parent – please ask for your child to see Monica if your child struggles or is worried about seeing the dentist or if you do not want them to have a bad dental experience which may make them phobic. This may be for example, because they require extractions as advised by their orthodontist prior to braces. Perhaps your child is autistic or has other medical needs and you would like to ensure comprehensive care to avoid dental problems. You may simply like them to have a specialist dental exam to ensure they avoid future dental problems or you would like specialist advice on how to prevent dental caries.
If you are a local dentist – with a child patient who is failing to cooperate, needs extensive or complicated dental treatment, requires multiple fillings or has fillings which keep falling out then please refer these patients to Monica. She may either, at your request,
1. complete one course of treatment and then once the patient is dentally fit, return them to your continuing care for prevention;
2. help to acclimatise an uncooperative patient, then return a happy patient to yourself for ongoing care or
3. retain patients who require long term care if you wish this.
