Introducing Apollonia’s Principal Dentist
Dr Melissa Goddard BDS FICOI – GDC 67475
“My main priority is to make people happy. Nothing beats the feeling of transforming someone for the better, raising their self -esteem and quality of life. I believe in really listening to patients to find out what their hopes and desires are. When you get to know people individually you can ensure their dental treatment meets and exceeds their expectations. After all, a truly great smile starts from within”.
