Nabila Riaz BDS 1993 (Dundee 1993

Hello, my name is Nabila Riaz. I am one of the principle partners here at Kingsport Dental Clinic. I graduated from Dundee Dental School in 1993. My former years were spent working the hospital sector. Firstly at Edinburgh Dental Institute and then in the Oral Surgery Unit in Dunfermline. I then went on to work in private general dental practice for several years. I very much enjoy general practice and endeavour to provide a high standard of continuing care to my patients. I get very enthusiastic about carrying out cosmetic dental treatment and I continue to attend courses to keep a breadth of current developments and techniques in all aspects of dentistry in particular cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics. 

Claire Gilsenan
I graduated from the University of Dundee Dental School in 2015 and have since worked at a busy mixed NHS and private practice in Co. Durham, before joining the team here at Kingsport. I thoroughly enjoy seeing a variety of patients daily, and carrying out all aspects of dental treatment. I am very keen on prevention and aim to provide treatment options which are minimally invasive.
I am committed to continually developing my knowledge. At present, I am studying to complete the second part of the MFDS exam to gain membership to the Royal College of Dental Surgeons.
Outside dentistry, I thoroughly enjoy keeping fit, travelling and cooking. Other than this, I always take time to make the trip home to Northern Ireland to see family and friends!

Hi I’m Diane Allan, one of the Hygienists here at Kingsport.   I trained as a Dental Hygienist and Therapist at the Edinburgh Dental Institute, and I’ve enjoyed being part of the team here since 2010.  I’m here to help you improve your oral health and maintain your hygiene routine at home.  

I have a gentle and friendly approach, which is particularly important when treating children and anxious patients.  In my free time I enjoy keeping active and participate in and teach the martial art TaeKwon-Do – but don’t be scared ...I’ll look after you well! 
Diane Allan

Jennifer Orr (BSc) Dental Hygiene Therapist

I qualified as a dental hygiene therapist with a merit in 2015 from Glasgow Dental Hospital. I achieved an award from the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy for best clinical performance in my final year of study. I am delighted to be part of the team at Kingsport Dental Clinic and I look forward to providing gold standard patient care. Outside of surgery I enjoy keeping fit and staying active and in the next few years I hope to travel to different parts of the world.
