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.
