Meet the Team
Dr Martyn N.Rudiak
B.D.S. (Lond) L.D.S. R.C.S. (Eng) (GDC 58479)
Martyn qualified at Guy's Hospital, London with B.D.S. and from the Royal College of Surgeons, London with L.D.S. R.C.S. in 1983 and went to work in general practice.
Martyn enjoy all aspects of clinical dentistry but over the last number of years devoted much more of my time to cosmetic dentistry and the treatment of extremely nervous patients.
A number of years ago he attained full membership status of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) which I retain by regularly attending numerous cosmetic dentistry courses, keeping me very up to date in all the latest dental techniques.
When not at the practice he enjoys family life with Nicola, three children. I also enjoy rugby, reading and snowboarding.
Derien Pugh B.D.S (Lond) 1992 (GDC 68409)
Derien qualified as a dentist in 1992 from Guy's Dental Hospital. She has worked in south-east London, the New Forest and locally in Chandlers Ford before joining us at Smile. She is enthusiastic about preventative treatment and minimally invasive dentistry which means natural tooth structure is kept, rather than being drilled away. Derien also enjoys seeing children and this type of dentistry suits them very well.
Derien is married to Charlie and has two children and a young dog called Dave. She is a keen gardener and cook and likes to keep fit by visiting a training gym, running and cycling.
