Andrew Prynne Partner And Dentist

Andrew Prynne Partner & Dentist


Born in Lambeth Hospital (a true cockney: born within earshot of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow Church) he moved to Bournemouth as an infant and has lived there ever since. Andrew’s first dental experiences were at 740 Dental where he has been treated all his life.

Indeed, it was while he was visiting regularly for orthodontic treatment at the age of 12 that his mother remembers him remarking that, ‘They are all so friendly and having so much fun in there, that is where I would like to work when I am older’. And so, at the age of 24, Andrew did his first day’s work as a dentist in the very room where he had been treated that day.

Andrew qualified from University College Hospital in 1987 having achieved the Dentsply Prize for Restorative Dentistry. He took up his first position at 740 Dental as an associate dentist and after a brief period in 1992 helping a colleague set up a practice in the Forest of Dean, Andrew returned to 740 as a partner.

In 1990, Andrew became a lecturer on the local dental nurses’ course for the National Certificate and subsequently became a National Examiner on the National Examination Board for Dental Nurses.

In 2004, Andrew started a three-year course in dental implantology under Prof Manuel Chanavaz of Lille University in France and has since developed a comprehensive implant service for his own patients and on referral.

Andrew has a keen interest in cosmetic dentistry offering a complete smile design service including single visit porcelain restorations, facial aesthetics and cosmetic orthodontics. Trained by Prof Bob Khanna, Andrew offers anti-wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin and replacement of lost tissue with dermal fillers.

Andrew’s Family Life

Andrew has a great life balance with a wonderful family. He married in 1993 and has three children who are each successful in their own lives. His eldest daughter is a footwear designer/developer, his second is a staff nurse and his son is studying anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Andrew is  proud also to have a granddaughter who is just under 3 years old.

Andrew has a keen interest in motorcycling, computer technology, motor racing and has recently taken up cycling again. Andrew and his son also spend many Sundays ‘airsofting’ at the Ground Zero site in Somerley Park.

See What Our Patients Say

"I've never had a fear of going to the dentist"

Highly recommended. Richard is my dentist who sees my whole family and has done for years, he is the best in the business (in my opinion). Katie the hygienist is the only one I like seeing and so glad she’s back from maternity! Due to these two I’ve never had a fear of going to the dentist.

Says G Betambeau

"always so kind and understanding"

Angela O’Regan is a truly wonderful dentist. She is also always so kind and understanding. I truly do not know where I would be without her. Ruth is my dental hygienist. She too is excellent and always so helpful in every way. They are both amazing and I am always so grateful to both of them.

Says E Mills

"I've regained trust in the dental profession"

If it weren’t for Andrew Prynne and the amazing team at 740 Dental I don’t know if I’d have ever regained any trust in the dental profession. More importantly, our children are happy and confident to attend their appointments and take on board all the advice offered to them. We always feel fully informed and I know that their comfort with any procedures is of upmost importance to the whole team.

Says C Wilson

"extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming"

I was previously a nervous patient but can’t even remember that now. I lost a front tooth in an accident in my twenties, we struggled keeping a bridge in place. He suggested I get an implant. He is extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming. Quick to sort out any dental emergencies. Ruth is my hygienist and she is also amazing.

Says C Drummond

"Literally the best dentist I have ever been too"

Literally the best dentist I have ever been too! I’ve always been scared and had huge anxiety attacks whilst in the waiting room but since moving here, Andrew has made me feel so comfortable and I don’t dread going to the dentist. Lovely staff, can’t fault anything.

Says A Meek

"understands people's fears of dentists"

Sharon is really good and I would highly recommend her for anyone who struggles going to the dentist. She is kind, takes things at your pace and understands peoples fears of dentists. Thank you so much.
