Richard Lilleker

Richard Lilleker

Associate Dentist

QUALIFIED: UK, GDC Number: 85320

Richard grew up in Chesterfield, very close to the Peak District, and went to the University of Manchester graduating in 2005. He still loves to holiday in the area with his family.

Now living in Old Basing, most of his spare time is spent with the family or renovating the house and garden. He loves the outdoors, especially camping and biking. He is also involved in local politics and is a Parent Governor at Old Basing Infant School.

Richard has considerable experience in both NHS and private dentistry. He left the NHS after 10 years as it no longer supported career development whilst private dentistry allows a greater range of treatments. As a private general dentist he is able to get to know his patients and tailor treatments to the individual.

As your dentist Richard’s goal is to ensure you remain completely comfortable throughout your experience. He always discusses any proposed treatment in plain language, not technical jargon. He strives for the highest quality dentistry with the least patient discomfort. He likes to involve patients in treatment planning and decisions, working together as a team to find the solutions to their dental problems that will work best for them. It is a cliché but he really does treat every patient as he would wish to be treated himself.

His particular areas of interest include preventative and ‘minimal intervention’ dentistry which reduce the need for the more invasive treatments and look towards maintaining a healthy mouth for life. He has experience in all areas of general dentistry including orthodontics and implants, and can cater for all ages.

Many people find dentistry very daunting and he uses a range of simple techniques to reduce your anxiety. It is important that things are taken at the pace you need, ensuring you are always comfortable.

If you would like to meet Richard you would be very welcome. We hope your first appointment together can be a simple consultation to discuss your requirements, but if you should be experiencing pain and need an emergency appointment then we would be glad to help as soon as possible.

The new reception procedure was straightforward with no hassle and to all intents and purposes almost ‘normal’. Marcus

The staff were very friendly and helpful, explaining everything clearly. I felt like the treatment was completely tailored to me and they knew what would be suitable for my skin type more than I did. G. Chaloner
