Emma Casson | Dentist

There’s a stigma around dentistry that treatment has to be painful. These days, you can make everything almost pain-free. It’s an amazing thing to be able to give someone a positive experience and enable them to have the treatment they need without any pain.

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2004 and gained my MFGDP (Member of the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners (UK) from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2006. After qualifying, I served for eight years as an army dentist in Cyprus, Germany and the UK. Marriage and children led me away from the military and into private practice, and we relocated to Jersey in 2018 for a better quality of life.

I absolutely love my job and it’s the people here that make it worthwhile, both the staff and the patients. I first became a dentist because I wanted to do something in healthcare that would allow me to improve people’s quality of life while also using my creative side. It’s very important to me that I keep at the forefront of dental best practice and in 2018 I was awarded a Distinction in my Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Studies. Most recently, I have just completed a year-long Totally Aesthetics course in Cosmetic Dentistry.

In addition to routine dentistry I have always had a particular interest in Periodontology (gum disease). I have enhanced my skills in this area by completing a postgraduate diploma in dental studies (DPDS) with Periodontology as my final module. By working closely with patients I can improve their oral health and in many cases, extend the life of severely compromised teeth.

Life outside of work involves juggling family commitments and my love of many outdoor pursuits. My husband and I have two young children and two border terriers to keep us busy. I particularly enjoy running on the cliff paths and cycling, but I have dabbled at triathlon and Breca swimrun events and I am always up for a challenge.
