The principal dentists at Hertford Dental Care are husband and wife Dr Gordon Black and Dr Ishita Black. Along with our team we aim to give you the highest quality dental care to ensure you have healthy teeth and gums.
Gordon graduated from Bristol University in 2002, he completed his vocational training in Nottingham then continued in general dental practice for 2 years in Nottingham. Gordon worked in general dental practice in Chorleywood for 3 years then became principal dentist along with Ishita at Hertford Dental Care in 2008.
Gordon sat and passed the exams to become a member of the faculty of dental practitioners MFGDP(UK) in 2004. After this, Gordon became interested in more advanced aesthetic dentistry and attended the Larry Rosenthal aesthetic advantage continuum followed by the three levels run by The California Centre for Advanced Dental Studies.
In 2008 and 2009 Gordon also attended a two year dental implants course at The Royal College of Surgeons and has been awarded the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners Diploma in Implant Dentistry.
Having worked in General dental practice for 22 years, Gordon enjoys all the different aspects of dentistry but is particularly interested in more advanced aesthetic dentistry to change people’s smiles. Using techniques ranging from invisible orthodontics and tooth whitening to porcelain veneers, Gordon can dramatically improve the smiles of his patients.
With the increasing desire for long lasting fixed restorations from patients it has lead to greater demand for dental implants. Gordon enjoys being able to replace missing teeth with implants to improve the function and aesthetics for his patients.
Away from dentistry, Gordon loves sport. He has always been a keen rugby player and golfer and tries to keep fit with circuit training, running and 5-a-side football.
Besides sports, Gordon loves spending as much time as he can with his three sons Rowan, Aran and Noah along with his wife Ishita.
Gordon has completed a two year dental implants course at the Royal College of Surgeons and has been awarded his diploma in dental implants.
In 2008, Gordon was one of 7 finalists at the National Smile awards for the smile makeover category using porcelain veneers for one of his patients.
