Dalia Odeh BSc, MSc, MFDS (RCS, Eng). GDC 84248

Dalia qualified with her BDS degree in 1997. Her first job was at the Royal Medical Armed Forces in Jordan, where she worked for 5 years, during which time she finished 2 years as a senior house officer in Restorative Dentistry.

Dalia moved to the UK in 2002 with her husband. After achieving her IQE exam with the General Dental Council, she started her first job in the UK at a general dental practice in Bury St Edmunds, with the Suffolk West PCT. She gained a wide experience in many disciplines of dentistry. Moreover, Dalia attended the Oral Surgery Department at the Ipswich Hospital for further experience in this field.

In 2004 Dalia gained her MFDS degree from the Royal College of Surgeons of England, which recognises her ability to competently diagnose different clinical cases, prescribe the correct treatment plan and treat them with high standards.

In 2007 Dalia joined a general dental practice in Felixstowe where she worked till 2016. During that time, Dalia achieved her MSc degree (with Distinction) from King’s College London in 2013. Her MSC is in Aesthetic Dentistry. This course has helped Dalia in her aim to improve the patient’s smile, both functionally and cosmetically. Whether it be a simple case involving one or two teeth, or whether it be a complex case involving the whole dentition, Dalia has gained as a result of this degree the competence and confidence to tackle and manage many of these cases. This includes severe cases of tooth wear, TMJ problems and improving any smile as conservatively as possible.

Dalia also worked at a general dental practice in Stowmarket from 2012 until 2016. Working in different practices allowed her to expand her knowledge of the different dental materials and gave her an insight into how other dentist work, which has further enhanced her clinical experience.

Dalia became a member of the Royal College of General Dental Practitioners in 2014, and she is also a member of the British Dental Association. Dalia attends many courses, both in the region and away, and is always keen to learn from other dentists, as well as help and support other colleagues. She has recently attended a course in London for Pascal Magne, who is a renowned world expert in Aesthetic and restorative dentistry.

Dalia believes a lot in Biomimetics in Dentistry and restoring teeth to their natural form. Bonding has played a big part in the last few years in advancing dentistry, and it has changed how dentists tackle compromised teeth and treat complex cases. With the newer ceramics and composites on the market now, Dalia believes they provide treatment modalities for much more cases than in the past, especially with the right bonding systems to go with them.
