Majid Shahab – Dentist (BDS Kings London)
GDC registration number: 72365
Majid graduated from Kings College School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1996. His postgraduate training included courses in the U.K and U.S.A, with a particular focus on restorative and cosmetic dentistry. These elements have defined much of his work, including carrying out smile makeovers for television, or offering advice in the national press.
His thirst for knowledge and wish to give patients the most up to date care have not diminished. A one year course in implant dentistry will soon be followed by an MSc, alongside the regular professional training he enjoys.
Sharing a broad breadth of knowledge with colleagues is equally important to Majid. He served as a vocational trainer in South London, mentoring recently qualified dentists and is an inspiration to our staff.
Patients of all ages find Majid’s care valuable. With five children of his own, he is ideally suited to supporting younger patients, although the thoughtful approach Majid offers is helpful at every age. After a first visit, a patient took time to write to us about Majid’s dedication, perfectionism and professionalism. Another, with a significant dental phobia, mentioned how very caring Majid was during her visit.
Receiving wider dental treatment from a professional with a thorough understanding of restorative and cosmetic dentistry is helpful. A sound mixture of medicine and personal care, delivered with the patient in mind.
Our patients and staff are pleased to have Majid working at our practice, a dentist who embodies the friendly ethos we all share.
John Mantel - Dentist
GDC registration number: 54366
Hi my name is John. I have a special interest in treating patients whose teeth have undergone extensive wear and breakdown. Re-building dentitions in people who often are not happy with their smile and may have lost their self confidence . In many cases these patients would have compromised function as well as poor aesthetics in relation to their teeth. I always try to do this as conservatively as possible using minimally invasive dentistry.
Part of the treatment may involve straightening or re-aligning teeth which are crowded or have drifted over a period of time. I routinely use the Invisalign Clear Aligner system. As part of my patient assessment I use an intra- oral scanner to scan a patients teeth and show them how their teeth would look if they chose to have them straightened.
I really enjoy helping my patients to rebuild their smile and self confidence . During each stage of treatment I always try to ensure that my patients have all the information they need to make an informed choice. If you feel that I may be able to help you then I look forward to meeting you.
Susannah McNee – Dental Therapist
I initially studied Physiology and Pharmacology in Manchester, and qualified with a BSc in 2007. From here, I went on to study Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy at Leeds Dental Institute, graduating in 2010.
I moved back to the North West after graduating to work within General Dental Practice. I enjoy working with patients to help them achieve healthy teeth and gums, improving confidence and smiles. I have an interest in the treatment of more advanced gum disease and also improving aesthetics with white fillings.
I am a member of the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy (BSDHT) and regularly attend further development courses to ensure I am up to date with the latest knowledge and techniques, which I can then apply to my practice to ensure I am offering the most up to date treatment techniques.
I have a keen interest in skin care and Facial aesthetics. This past year, I have been training and developing my knowledge and clinical skills in this area. Outside of work I love to be outdoors hiking, travelling and visiting new places. I like to cook and experiment in the kitchen, and enjoy eating even more!

Sophie Tomkins - Dental Nurse
I started my training as a Dental Nurse in 2016, and qualified from Manchester Dental Hospital in 2018. Since completing my studies I have loved all aspects of Dentistry and Dental Nursing, but my favourite part of my job is working with patients. Being able to help people to maintain good oral health, assist when patients need an emergency appointment for pain, and working as part of the clinical team at The Peaks to give people the smile they’ve always wanted is hugely rewarding. I’m a very hands on, hardworking person and strive for perfection in my work to ensure I can satisfy every patients’ needs, as well as supporting the needs of the team. I enjoy working with patients of all ages, from tots to adults, and thrive when presented with new challenges to work through with my colleagues.
When I’m not at work I spend time with my 4 children; we enjoy going on long walks and adventures out and about. Our dog Ronnie keeps us all laughing with plenty of playtime and fun, especially if we go anywhere that he can splash about in the water! For a bit of me time I like going to the gym to keep fit and healthy, and enjoy knitting to help me relax and switch off.
