Dinesh Vegad – Principle Dentist and Owner

Dinesh Vegad GDC Number: 50466
BDS at the University of Birmingham in 1976

After qualifying I worked in the NHS to get a sound experience in all aspects of general dentistry, including oral surgery. In 1992 I embarked upon a post graduate education in cosmetic and implant dentistry. Having completed hundreds of cosmetic cases and satisfied patients I felt challenges lay ahead in implant dentistry to restore missing teeth without having to cut down further teeth to restore them by bridges. The last 20 years have been devoted to intensive training courses here and in the USA in Implantology including certificate in Implantology with Dr Hilt Tatum father of implant dentistry.

I enjoy travelling abroad, good food and wild life safaris as I love wild life with a passion.


Dinesh, thank you so much for the work that you have done on my teeth, the difference you have made to my confidence has been remarkable - Gaz

I just wanted to say thank you Dinesh for all of your continued kindness over our many dental visits. As we travel from America to see you, we will not visit anywhere else - Deepi

Thank you for my new smile! - Ravita

Dinesh has been my dentist for over 30 years, his technique and all round skills are second to none. He shows great passion for what he does and has continued to do so in that time. World class! - Colin

I have been seeing Dinesh for 2 years and would not go anywhere else. Fantastic! - Patsy

A huge thank you to the chief wizard Dinesh Vegad, such a gifted and truly exceptional dental surgeon. Many thanks - Marion


Damien McLaughlinDamien McLaughlin - Associate Dentists

GDC Number: 85601
BDS at the University of Liverpool in 2005

I qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2005 with a distinction in Oral Health. I have since completed a post graduate qualification in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. I have a special interest in cosmetic and computerised dentistry. I am one of a few UK graduates to have completed the entire essentials curriculum at the renowned Pankey Institute in the USA and I have used this knowledge to complete numerous other post graduate training in Cerec technology and same day smile makeovers.

Providing patients with the care and clinical guidance when choosing a treatment plan is the most important stage. Allowing patients to make informed decisions about treatments to access the long term benefits is why I love my job. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and going on fishing trips with my friends.


Thank you for great service Damien, really happy with the results - Mohammed

Highly impressed with Damien's professionalism, care and attention expressed on all appointments - Jane

Since qualifying he has centred his learning on advanced restorative dentistry, orthodontics and occlusion, having completed the Pankey Institute's Essentials Programme representing almost 200 hours of post graduate training in Miami, USA. He is currently completing a Master's degree in orthodontics and regularly attends orthodontic courses throughout the country. This allows multidisciplinary treatment planning such as pre-prosthetic and pre-implant orthodontics to be a straight forward process.

Dominic has been amazing, everything was explained very well and appointment times were very flexible – very impressed with the results, thank you! – Scott

Great results, the care and attention to detail has been amazing, thanks! – Amanda

Mammoth thanks going out to Dr Dominic Mclaughlin and Staff at St Pauls Dental Practice. I kept on putting off getting my teeth straightened for years because of the length of time I would have to wear the braces, my age and cost. I am well and truly overwhelmed with the results. Thank-you all for your Professionalism and Cutting-Edge Technology. - Alan
