Meet the Dentists
Simon Hill BDS Dip Imp Dent RCS (Eng) GDC No 72727
Having grown up in Llantwit Major, this historic town in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan was the obvious location for Simon Hill to open his Implant and General Dental Practice. The town also provided the springboard for Simon’s professional rugby career and he went on to play for Cardiff and won 12 caps for Wales. Simon is still very much involved in rugby in the local community, coaching the Llantwit Major RFC First XV.
Simon Hill qualified from Cardiff Dental School in 1996 and has gone on to build up a very successful general practice. He developed his skills in providing the highest standard of aesthetic dentistry before concentrating on the placement and restoration of dental implants. He has completed the Diploma in Implantology with the Royal College of Surgeons and has an advanced certificate in hard tissue augmentation. Simon has over 8 years experience placing implants and implant retained restorations, ranging from simple tooth replacement to complex full mouth rehabilitation including the new Columbus Bridge treatment which provides patients with restorations in just 24 hours. You can read his patients’ comments on the Testimonials page. He is a fully trained sedationist and also lectures and acts as a mentor for other dentists interested in developing their skills in implantology.
Simon Stokes BDS MFDS GDC No 103804
Associate Dentist Simon Stokes proved so popular with our patients that his appointment book is now at capacity. Simon originally comes from County Limerick in Ireland and his previous experience has been in both hospital and private and NHS practices in Ireland and Scotland. Simon is married and lives with his wife in Cardiff.
Here at Wyndham House, Simon is currently seeing a mixture of patients both within and outside the NHS. He is particularly interested in cosmetic dentistry, offering patients a wide range of treatments including tooth whitening, ceramic crowns, veneers, bridge-work and high-end dentures. Alongside this Simon is delivering general dentistry such as replacing amalgam fillings with more aesthetic composite (white) solutions. Simon has a proactive approach to preventative dentistry and is especially dedicated to working with our hygienists to promote good oral hygiene practise with the children registered at the Practice.
When he’s not busy maintaining the oral health of Vale residents, Simon will most likely be found exercising or watching some sporting activity. He’s a fan of both rugby (so far still supporting Ireland but we live in hope) and football and keeps himself fit by running, skiing and visiting the gym.
