Dr Joanna McKenzie and her husband James are now the new owners of Forestside Dental Practice based in Dibden Purlieu near Southampton situated in the heart of the New Forest since the beginning of August 2017. I qualified from Gdansk Medical University in Poland with a Masters Degree in 1989 and have been practicing ever since for the last 29 years. My experience has developed since owning and working in my own practice in Poland combined being employed for the last 12 years in one Dental practice in Kent in the UK. Throughout my career, I have continued to develop my skills by attending various specialist fields of dentistry both abroad and within the UK, like Diploma of Implantology Cambrige or the latest being awarded a Master class Implantology Certificate at Cezanne Dental Centre in Berlin November2017 and many others. My specific interests are completing implantology requirements, all types of restorative dentistry, prosthodontic treatments and cosmetic dentistry including Invisalign. In my spare time I love to spend my time with my family, travel to experience different cultures and above all I find skiing extremely exhilarating.
