Meet Our Team

Michaela Matthews
Business Development and Strategy Manager

michaella mathews
I have been with The Dental Design Studio since 2013 and originally joined as a Practice Manager. Previously to this, I was a Service Woman within Her Majesty's Armed Forces and during my 12-year military career I specialised in stock control initially and later as a Tri-Service dental nurse and Practice Manager. 

My role as Business Development and Strategy Manager is extremely diverse and I immensely enjoy the ‘behind the scenes’ operational work. 

When I am not working, I spend my time with my husband and 10-year-old daughter. If there is any more spare time, I like to run to keep fit!

I qualified from Leeds University in 1979 in physiology and biochemistry. I then studied at King's College Dental School and qualified in 1983, then undertaking a house job at King's College for 1 year across a range of specialties. 

Following my time at King's, I then worked in several private and NHS practices in Essex. It is in 1997 that I moved to Suffolk and took over the Beccles practice. I have been working here for over 20 years and know all my patients well. It is a pleasure to work in a lovely long-established practice. 

In my spare time, I am an enthusiastic cyclist and like nothing more than exploring the countryside on two wheels.

mariann kovacs
I completed my undergraduate dental training in Szeged, Hungary in 2006. I studied at the University of Dental Medicine for a further 4 years after graduation. I became a specialist in treating gum disease after a 3-year postgraduate training at the Department of oral medicine and periodontology.

I moved to the UK in 2010 and became an NHS dentist, and have been practicing at the Dental Design Studio since 2013. I treat many patients as a general dentist and have a great advantage of using my specialist skills in treating gum disease in the general dental practices.I enjoy all aspects of dentistry especially gum disease treatments and cosmetic dental procedures such as tooth whitening.

I live in Beccles with my family and I am very happy to be a member of the local community here in the beautiful Waveney Valley.

paul niland
I qualified in June 2000 at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa and, after completing a years’ service in South Africa community hospital, I relocated to the UK in 2001. 

I have a particular interest in IV sedation, oral surgery and implantology and have gained vast experience in all of these fields over the years. I have advanced my knowledge and skills by obtaining a degree in implantology at the prestigious Lille University in France in 2009 and by completing numerous hours in post-graduate courses to stay abreast with the latest techniques.

My passion and skill in implant dentistry has enabled me to literally change the lives of many patients by rebuilding their whole smile with dental implants. These beautiful life-changing smiles can only be achieved by having an extensive knowledge of dental implants, crowns, bridges and smile makeovers.

I am a member of SAAD (Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry), ADI (Association of Dental Implantology), EAO (European Association for Osseointegration), AO (American Academy of Osseointegration), BDA (British Dental Association) and GDC (General Dental Council).

Dr. Randhir C Seewoodharry Buguth
I completed my training at the University of Aix Marseilles 11 in France after finishing my A levels in Mauritius. I won a French Scholarship and I am also a holder of a post graduate in general pharmacology (Marseille) and dentofacial orthopaedic (Montpellier).

I owned a private practice in Mauritius for 20 years and relocated to the UK in 2006. I have served as a school Governor in the curriculum and quality committee at the East Norfolk Sixth Form College in Gorleston for 8 years. I also hold a NVQ level 4 in Health and Social Care.

In 2016, I worked as a dentist in the South of France (Orange). I have recently started with The Dental Design Studio as a general dental practitioner and I am looking forward to further developing myself within dental implants.

I am the hygienist for The Dental Design Studio at the Lowestoft and Beccles practices. My treatments for patients range from aesthetic scaling and polishing of teeth through to treating gum disease. 

A major part of my role is emphasising the importance of oral health advice in an effort to educate patients in preventing oral disease occurring. 

I am originally from Northumberland, I moved to East Anglia in 2015 when I began working for the company. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling.

Sharon Skinner
Senior Receptionist

anna fraser
I have been a receptionist at the Beccles practice for 17 years, I was also a registered dental nurse. I have seen many changes over the years but our patient care has always been first class.
I thoroughly enjoy working on the reception desk and have come to know many of our patients very well.

In my free time I like to keep fit by walking my 2 dogs, going on holidays and spending time with my family.

Annabel Skinner
Head Dental Nurse

annabel skinner
I joined The Dental Design Studio in 2011 as a trainee Dental Nurse straight from school, aged just 16; since then I have progressed to be Head Dental Nurse which I really enjoy. What I enjoy most about being a dental nurse is seeing the change in anxious patients as they overcome their fears. 

I am currently doing a business administration course for further development and in my spare time I enjoy going to the gym and relaxing on spa days. 

Katie Rudd
Dental Nurse

katie rudd
I am Katie and I have been a patient at the practice since I was a little girl. I started working at The Dental Design Studio as a student dental nurse in December 2014, and I qualified in April 2016.

I really enjoy all aspects of my role and more recently I have been nursing with our dentist that provides implants. This is an area of dentistry that I find really interesting and within which I would like, in the future, to develop more. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping and socialising with my family and friends.

Natalie Prettyman
Dental Nurse

natalie prettyman
I’m Natalie and I have been a dental nurse for 9 years. I gained my National Certificate in Dental Nursing in 2010 and have worked at the Dental Design Studio for just over two years. I have recently returned to work after 9 months of maternity leave.

I think it's very important to be caring, compassionate and to make the patient as comfortable as possible during their treatment with us. 

As a busy mum of two little girls, I don't get much time to myself, but when I'm not working, I enjoy socialising/dining out with friends and family or making memories with my husband and daughters.
