Colin Houston

Our founder, Colin Houston, has been the leader of dental excellence at Thorpe Lea Dental since 1998. Recognised for his gentle yet proficient approach, Colin has secured the trust and esteem of patients both near and far, not solely through his remarkable dental abilities but for his warmth and genuine concern. Embarking on his career in 1992, he's more than a dentist; he's a compassionate presence, dedicated to the health and smiles of his patients.

His quest for clinical perfection is equally matched by his commitment to patient comfort, ensuring every visit is a reassuring experience. Colin is at the cutting edge of modern dental practices. As a certified Invisalign Gold I provider, he has transformed numerous smiles with this innovative, virtually invisible aligning system. His passion for oral health extends to pioneering treatments like the T-Scan, a digital system that enhances bite analysis and treatment, tackling issues from TMJ disorders to improving overall bite comfort.

His dedication to ongoing learning has made him proficient in a variety of specialised services, including dental implants, fast-track adult braces, and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures like composite veneers. Each treatment is tailored to the individual, reflecting Colin's belief in personalised, ethical care.

But Colin's influence stretches beyond the clinic. A family man with two teenage daughters, he finds balance in the great outdoors, whether that's windsurfing, cycling, or skiing. This blend of professional dedication and personal warmth makes Colin not just a specialist in his field but a trusted partner in your dental health journey. At Thorpe Lea Dental, it's not just about crafting beautiful smiles; it's about fostering lasting relationships built on trust, proficiency, and unparalleled care.

He explains everything to me and checks at every stage of the dental surgery that I 'm ok. I feel relaxed with him and I know that it’s worth every penny.
