Meet The Team
Tom and the team are committed to making sure each and every patient receives the best service, specifically tailored to their individual needs.
Dr. Tom Keppel – Clinical Director
I have been working as a cosmetic and restorative dentist at Keppel Dentistry in Sutton, Surrey for nearly 20 years, as well as Harley Street in Central London. I want to help you to have a smile that not only looks great, but that functions perfectly as well, ensuring that you look and feel your best.
I help people to ensure that they have healthy teeth and they maintain them. I want to prevent dental caries and tooth decay as much as possible, as well as oral cancer. Dental health and reducing tooth decay is the starting point for any good dental treatment.
I trained at Trinity College, Dublin and later gained a further post graduate qualification at the renowned Eastman Dental Hospital. I continue my professional development by attending courses in the UK and internationally.
My enthusiasm for continuing education led me to the Pankey Institute and Spear Education in the USA, as well as the renowned Eastman Hospital in London. By increasing my knowledge and skills I have been able to offer a much wider range of treatments to the highest quality.

Dr. Priya Suaris
Our Aesthetic Director Dr. Priya Suaris graduated from Imperial School of Medicine in 1995 and has been practicing medicine for over 20 years. Her interest in aesthetics stems from spending a good deal of her professional time with plastic surgeons in her role as a Consultant Anaesthetist.
She is a busy mother of two and understands how difficult it is to find time to look after ourselves. That’s why she believes in evidence-based treatments with a proven track record, no gimmicks – just a realistic approach to slowing down ageing. She believes that aesthetic treatments should always look natural, enhancing appearance rather than altering it, and her personal aesthetic philosophy is a “less is more” attitude to injectables.
Come and meet her at a series of informal launch events where she will explain how treatments work and which would best suit your needs.
