We are very fortunate to have Dr. Monica Neil as part of our team. She is a GDC registered Specialist in Paediatric Dentistry, with a well established reputation providing specialist high quality dental treatment for children, accepting referrals and seeing newly referred child patients here in our Stroud and Cleevelands, Bishop’s Cleeve specialist dentist clinics.
Monica is also a hospital Consultant and Honorary Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University Dental Hospital and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales. She was previously a Consultant at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London for two years.
Monica has worked as a Specialist Paediatric Dentist at Great Ormond Street Hospital where she was the first dentist to be nominated for a prestigious Great Ormond Street Hospital Staff Award. She 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 and 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. Monica completed her Consultant training at the Eastman Dental Institute, UCLH, London and has also worked as Paediatric Dentist on the Surrey Multidisciplinary team for children with Cleft Lip and/or Palate for six years and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Her research has been published in internationally renowned journals including the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry and she has been invited to speak across the world including Germany, Korea and Switzerland. 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 needed and provides specialist care for children with medical problems, hypoplastic or hypomineralised teeth and hypodontia.
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 negative 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 specialist level care or you may simply like them to have a specialist dental assessment to help avoid future dental problems or 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,
- complete one course of treatment and then once the patient is dentally fit, return them to your continuing care for prevention;
- help to acclimatise an uncooperative patient, then return a happy patient to yourself for ongoing care or
- retain patients who require long term care if you wish this.
