Dr Nikos Louskos, Principal Dentist 
DDS, MSc in Endondontics
GDC 102626 

I am the Principal owner of the practice since 2017 after being an associate for over 3 years. I qualified in Athens over 11 years ago and have been in the UK nearly 6 years now. 

I like to really get to know my patients and put them at ease, dentistry doesn't have to be daunting or scary. I take pride in really explaining to patients all the options that are available to them so they can make the correct, informed decision for them. The staff are always making jokes at my diagrams to help explain to patients, I think I made the right decision becoming a dentist instead of an artist! I am experienced in general dentistry such as bridges, crowns fillings etc and have a passion for endodontic (root canal) treatment. I have a master of science degree in this field and enjoy the tricky cases I am sent. Who doesn't like a challenge. 

 Dr Charalampos Gkikas or Harry, Asscociate Dentist, DDS, DDT

I qualified in Athens in 2007 and have worked with Nikos for nearly 3 years. We work very similarly and are known to spend time talking everything through with patients. I enjoy my job particularly transforming smiles with Invisalign and Cfast. I also do all the facial aesthetics at the practice. I love developing my clinical skills further and have completed many additional courses, such as Tipton restorative, lumineers and snap on smiles training and monic vasant in composite applications. I like my patients to feel confident and know that they're in very good hands.

Dr Philip McCauley, Implantologist
GDC 76491 

I graduated from Queen’s University Belfast Dental School in 1999 and following that I then worked for a year as a Senior House Officer in the Oral Surgery department at Poole General Hospital. This gave me invaluable experience in dentoalveolar surgery as well as passing the MFDS examination in May 2001. I enjoy furthering my skills and knowledge and regularly complete additional post graduate courses.

My real passion lies in placing and restoring dental implants which I have been doing since 2002. I have actually been awarded the Fellowship of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists which was an amazing achievement. 

In recent years I have been lecturing to local dentists on simple restorative implant cases and am coordinating the set-up of a Study Club for local dentists on challenging restorative cases.
Camilla Caldwell, Dental Therapist
Diploma in Dental Hygiene, Diploma in Dental Therapy
GDC 195171

I am the dental therapist at Waterside Dental Practice after qualifying at King's College in London back in June 2013 and started at the practice in October 2016. I carry out all the hygiene appointments for patients, gum treatments, discuss how to maintain and improve their oral hygiene regime and also do tooth coloured fillings. When I'm not treating patients I spend a lot of time with my horses and have had a passion for riding since I was young.

Danica Payne, Practice Manager
RDN GDC 245990

Since starting my dental nurse training back in 2011 I knew I had a passion for dentistry. Since qualifying I progressed to gain my dental impressions and radiography qualifications and my Diploma in Practice Management in 2015. I get the most job satisfaction from life changing dentistry which is why I love working at Waterside Dental Practice. Whether we transform a patient’s smile with Invisalign or dental implants or simply gain a patient's trust so they're no longer petrified, is why I love my job. I like my practices to feel homely and love to catch up with our regular patients with a cuppa. Knowing I have been part of their patient journey is an amazing feeling. 

Annette Moloney  
Dental Receptionist 

I relocated from Hertfordshire to Southampton in 2012 and have over 20 years experience working with adults and children.  I joined the Waterside team in 2014 and have enjoyed getting to know our regular patients over the last few years. I am usually the voice you hear at the end of the phone or the one to make you a nice tea or coffee when you come to see us. When not at work I love to travel, catch up on the rugby or keep active with kayaking or camping. 

Sophie Spencer, Dental Nurse, RDN 
GDC 271197 

I  have worked at Waterside Dental Practice since
May 2015. Working with Nikos I have gained experience in a wide variety of treatments including root canals, extractions, crowns and bridges. It is nice to have a variety each day to keep me on my toes and I love to help people. Comforting a patient through their treatment so they're pleasantly surprised when we're done is always a nice surprise to give them. I have also completed further training after qualifying to enable me to take dental impressions which I love, the more hands on I can be the better.

Miriam Wells, Dental Nurse, RDN, 
GDC 118029

I have worked for Waterside Dental Practice since July 2011 and have gained over 19 years experience in various areas of dentistry since starting my career in 1988. I have previously worked at Hythe hospital, including nursing multiple dental surgeries and accommodating complex orthodontic and oral surgery cases.  In my free time I enjoy walking my dog Toby - a Bichon Frise. 

Lisa Matthews, Dental Nurse, RDN, 
GDC 172851

I joined the practice back in 2006 and qualified with a City and Guilds Independent assessment 3 years later in 2009. I have furthered my clinical skills by completing an NVQ Level 3 in Oral health. I work with such a great team at Waterside and enjoy caring for all our patients both young and old. When not at work I love to spend time with family.
