Fernando graduated from the University of Granada, Spain in 2007. As part of his training, he spent one year at the University of Oslo, Norway. He then worked for three years as a general dentist in Gran Canaria, Spain, where he discovered his passion for Periodontics and Implant dentistry. This drove him to undertake a 3-year full-time Specialist Training in Periodontics at the world-renowned UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London. He later obtained Membership in Periodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was recognised as a Specialist in Periodontics by the General Dental Council. He joined the South Coast Dental Specialists team in 2013, where he has helped many patients to prevent tooth loss and replace some of their teeth with dental implants when necessary.

He has carried out research in the field of bone regeneration and presented his clinical work internationally. Above all, Fernando is very caring and seeks to understand each patient’s individual needs and treat them using an evidence-based approach.

Dentist Testimonials

“Fernando is a very talented periodontist. I always have complete confidence that my patients are in very capable hands. I have been in general practice for 20 years and have never seen consistent and positive results like Fernando delivers. He is excellent at carrying out procedures like root surface debridement, crown lengthening, gingival grafting, and implants. I have always seen the best results which makes me confident when completing the restorative phase of the treatment. He delivers treatment to a very high standard and patients’ satisfaction is second to none. He gives a very clear breakdown of the treatment and is very transparent with the costs. Fernando is very approachable, and he keeps you informed throughout the course of treatment. I feel very lucky to work with such a gifted periodontist to deliver the best patient care. He is also an excellent teacher as he is currently mentoring me for implants.”
Dr S Shinde, General Dental Practitioner

Patient Testimonials

“My implant treatment with Fernando was first class, I could not have chosen anyone better to do the job. Fernando was aware that I was apprehensive about the whole procedure, but he was reassuring and happy to answer any questions that I had, in person and by email. It was a long process due to the sinus lift and bone grafting but well worth the wait in the end. I would be more than happy to recommend Fernando and the team at South Coast Dental Specialists to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to go there for further treatment. Thank you.”
Rosemary, Dorchester
