Daniel BallDentists

GDC - 264747 BDS Newcastle University 2016 Dentist

Daniel has a strong interest in restorative dentistry and endodontics. After qualifying from Newcastle University in 2016 he moved back to Teesside, working in practices across Middlesbrough and Hartlepool, prior to joining our practice.

After developing an early interest in endodontics (root canal treatment), Daniel pursued further qualifications in this field. He completed the ‘Simplyendo’ course, ran by Dr Mike Horrocks, and gained a master’s degree in Endodontology in 2020.

Alongside his interest in endodontics, Daniel completed the year-long aesthetic and restorative dentistry course run by Dr Christopher Orr via Advanced Dental Seminars. This allowed him to provide more complex and cosmetic dental solutions for his patients. Looking to acquire further postgraduate qualifications, Daniel is currently undergoing his Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, through the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

No, orthodontics for adults is becoming more and more common. We can talk through your options with you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

Fillings repair small holes in your tooth enamel. If they aren’t filled, the decay will deepen. You’ll start to feel pain, and you could end up needing root canal treatment, which is much more significant and costs more. So although you might not feel pain right now, it’s best to repair these holes as soon as possible.
