Welcome to Sovereign House Specialist Dental Centre

Sovereign House was specifically designed and opened as a Specialist Dental Centre to provide treatment in a comfortable and friendly environment. Our aim is to provide high quality specialist dental care by our highly trained and experienced specialists and team. We offer an exemplary standard of service and treatment to referral dentists and their patients. Our specialists offer endodontic, periodontal, orthodontic, implant, oral surgery and oral medicine treatments.

Dr Lesley Pantlin originally started accepting referrals for periodontal treatment on completion of her MSc in Periodontology in 1994, having already been awarded membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In 2003 she decided to open Sovereign House to widen the scope of Specialist practice, by introducing implant and endodontic treatments. Increasing demand has increased the provision of treatment with the introduction of new highly qualified Specialists and the introduction of a Consultant in Oral Surgery, who runs our Tongue Tie Release Clinic and a Consultant in Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery.

In response to the demand for improved diagnostics, a high resolution CBCT scanner and reporting service was introduced in 2015, making available high quality 3D images to reveal anatomical and pathological information not readily available with routine radiography.

Most patients are referred to Sovereign House by their general dentist and we aim to liaise closely with the dentist to provide the best possible treatment planning and provision of treatment. Advice can be sought, when needed, from other Specialists at the practice. All patients are returned to their dentist for their continuing care, although periodontally susceptible patients may stay with us for their supportive periodontal treatment, to maintain the benefits of treatment.
