Dr Ian Charlesworth

Since graduation from Manchester University in 1996, Mr Ian Charlesworth takes pride in the high standards of practice to which he is committed, with patient care afforded the highest priority.

Continuing attendance at post-graduate courses and seminars ensures awareness of advancements in treatment techniques; at the same time stimulating thought on potential advancements and developments in specialist fields.

Over the years Mr Charlesworth has developed a particular and consummate interest in the speciality of endodontics: – the technique of root canal therapy.

Skills in this sub-speciality of dentistry have been honed by study and experience, driven by an absorbing interest, now recognised by fellow dental surgeons who submit referrals for this highly specialised treatment.

The atmosphere in his surgery is one of calm competence, generated by the application of care, coupled with a relaxed approach in explaining to the patient the remedial work or treatment required in terms which are readily understood.

Mr Charlesworth currently teaches post-graduate endodontics at the Manchester University Dental Hospital, secretary of a local endodontic study circle (NORWESC) and a member of the British Endodontic Society.
