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.
Ishita graduated from Bristol University in 2002, she completed her vocational training in Nottingham and continued to work in general practice the following year. During this year she completed her exams to become a member of the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners. And the following year, she worked as a Senior House Officer in the Maxillofacial department of Kingsmill Hospital where she treated patients who were referred from local practices for various oral surgery procedures including difficult extractions. During this post, she studied to become a member of The Royal College of Surgeons. Following her year in hospital she worked for 2 years in the Community Dental Service and treated patients who were referred from local practices due to extreme anxiety, behavioural problems or complex medical conditions. In 2008, Ishita and Gordon became the principal dentists at Hertford Dental Care.
Ishita has trained extensively in facial aesthetics and skin care. Treatments range from anti wrinkle treatments to dermal fillers along with using the latest skin care products. An advanced knowledge of facial anatomy in a clinical dental setting ensures Ishita can provide the highest standards of treatment to her patients.
Ishita enjoys treating patients of all ages and has had experience looking after patients who are particularly anxious and those with special needs. Along with general dentistry, she uses invisible orthodontics to align crowded teeth and has an interest in improving the appearance of the smile using various cosmetic techniques.
In her spare time, Ishita enjoys playing with her sons Rowan, Aran and Noah and she also enjoys photography, swimming and shoe shopping!
Ishita completed the 12 month programme in restorative and cosmetic dentistry with Dr Ian Cline & Joe Oliver in London. The course teaches the very latest techniques in the provision of this exciting branch of dentistry.
