Dr Helen Harrison BDS MFGDP (GDC no 60779)

I qualified in 1985 from the Royal London Hospital and have worked mostly in general dental practice ever since; I gained the Diploma in General Dental Practice from the Royal College of Surgeons in 1995.

My interests and skills are in providing high-quality repairs and replacements for teeth, together with prevention of dental problems. I also have a particular interest in the functional aspects of jaw joints and teeth and the way they affect and are affected by general health and fitness.

I established the Granta Dental team in 1990 because I wanted to create a practice which specialises in personalised, holistic dental care by understanding and responding to the individual needs of every patient. I'm delighted to say that I've now built a committed and professional team that does just that.

Neil Bukavs (GDC no 195832)

Dental Therapist and Hygienist

I began my career in dentistry as a Dental Nurse and am now a Dental Therapist and Hygienist.

I qualified at Bart's Hospital London and the Royal School of Medicine and Dentistry, where I developed a particular interest in Paediatric Dentistry and Special Needs Care; I am continuing my post-graduate training in these areas.

Before coming to Granta Dental, my previous work as a Dental Hygienist has built my understanding of patient care and I reflect this in how I work; I firmly believe that all patients should have a positive experience every time they visit a dental care professional.


Katie Collier (GDC no 167474)

Dental Therapist and Hygienist

I first joined Granta Dental as a dental nurse and my enthusiasm for what patient focussed dental care can offer led me to persue training as a Dental Therapist and Hygenist at Kings College Hospital in London. I graduated in 2013 and have re-joined the team to put my skills and training into helping our patients achieve the high standards of oral care that will benefit their general health.

Jonathan Harper BDS (GDC no 245 218)

Jonathan has been drawn back to his home in Cambridge and Granta Dental. Having gained an insight into dentistry with work experience as a dental nurse while at school, he graduated from Bristol University in 2013 and has since completed his Foundation Training in Tower Hamlets, London. The dental needs of this community are demanding and challenging, offering a broad range of practical experience.

Jonathan is keen to continue his academic training having already successfully completed part 1 of the Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties at the Royal College of Surgeons of England (MJDF RCS Eng) with a plan to pursue specialist training in endodontics in conjunction with his role as team dentist.
