Dr Emma Davison

Dr Emma Davison
Principal Dentist
GDC No. 67392

Emma qualified in 1991 at Kings College, London. She worked at Kings Dental Hospital for 1 year then spent 13 years in practice in Fulham. She joined the team here in April 2006 after having a break to have her second child. Dr Davison is an exceptionally well-trained holistic, general and cosmetic dentist, who makes helping others her priority; she is most content when giving others a reason to smile. She treats others as she would want to be treated herself. She feels passionate about providing gentle treatment to a high standard, and changing negative experiences to positive ones.

Emma was compelled to learn more about mercury toxicity by numerous patients who had approached her to have amalgam fillings replaced. Some had chronic fatigue or neurological symptoms, some had multiple allergies, others just wanted to improve their general health or to optimise fertility prior to conception.

She stays abreast of the changes in dentistry by participating in multiple dental study clubs and attending many hours in continuing education.

Dr. Davison enjoys reading, restaurants, and spending time with her husband and their two young children.
