Who we are

Andy Pearson, Principal Specialist Orthodontist

Qualifications: BDS (Sheffield), MMedSci, MOrth (England), FDS.Orth (England)

GDC number: 61675

I have been a dentist since 1986 and in specialist practice in Kidlington since 1998. Between ’86 and ’98 I had jobs in oral surgery and restorative dentistry and orthodontics before taking my last exam in 1996. I have worked in Sheffield, Edinburgh, Chesterfield, Manchester and High Wycombe prior to Kidlington, and now in Witney. I am currently an examiner for the Diploma in Orthodontics and for orthodontic therapists at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Although I have specialised in braces since 1996 I have worked in general practice as well, and I try to keep up to date with all areas of dentistry by attending local dental courses and lectures. I also sit on the Local Dental Committee.

My main interest is in Simplified Treatment Mechanics (STM) i.e. ensuring that the treatment provided is carried out with the minimum of fuss and in the minimum amount of time. I want the patient to understand why they are considering braces and what the benefits might be and to make an informed decision that is right for them.

Sylvia and I live in Witney and have two children, both at University. I try not to work every day of the year and enjoy long distance walking, going to the Lake District, films, books and music, cycling, guitars, karate, tents, and I have a canoe that I should use more.  I recently discovered a shop in Lewes that sells replica period mens clothing so have started to dress like a Victorian, this may be a temporary or permanent affectation.

Sylvia Pearson, Dental Surgeon and Orthodontic Assistant


Qualifications: BDS (Newcastle upon Tyne, 1984), BA (Hons) Drawing for fine art practice (Bath, 2010)

GDC number: 58995

After qualifying I worked in Newcastle Dental hospital for a year in both the Children’s department and Periodontology (gums). I then decided to go south and spent an exciting and exhausting 18 months as a resident Maxillo-Facial surgeon at Torbay hospital. This involved dealing with fractured jaws, removing wisdom teeth and suturing faces back together.

After marrying Andy in 1990 and starting a family I worked, part-time, as a General Dentist in Edinburgh, Chesterfield, Manchester and High Wycombe. When we moved to High Wycombe in 1997 I trained and started work as an orthodontic assistant, and have done so ever since; thankfully Andy is a great boss (apparently I have to say that).
I recently completed a BA in Art and spend my spare time stone carving, painting, creating works out of stained glass and messing around with digital photography. I enjoy running, keeping fit and tennis.
