Karin Lewis

Practice Partner

BDS (Lond) 1988. GDC no. 64003

Karin grew up and was educated in Bromley, South London. She completed her dental training at University College Hospital, London, qualifying in 1988. After graduating she moved to Canterbury and started working at the practice in 1989, just a few months after it opened. Over the past 25 years she has worked in a number of general practices locally in both the NHS and private sector and as a result has built up considerable experience. She has particular experience in treating very nervous patients. In 1995 she became a partner in the practice with Martin Southon.

My philosophy is that ‘prevention is better than cure’ and I encourage and educate my patients to keep their mouths healthy. The atmosphere in the surgery is relaxed and informal. You will often hear more laughing than drilling! I am particularly interested in tooth whitening and using tooth coloured fillings to improve the appearance of your teeth. Sometimes changing something quite small will make a significant difference to your smile.

Karin lives in the village and is married with two teenage children, two cats and five chickens! She enjoys, among other things, being in her garden, cooking, travelling and reading.
