About Us

Share a Smile is a dental centre based in Romford in Essex where we offer dentistry of the highest possible quality, both to patients referred by their dentists, and to the general public.

The centre is run by three General Dental Council registered dental specialists, Heinrich Ferreira (Orthodontist), Inus Goossens (Prosthodontist) and Pieter Odendaal (Periodontist). They are highly qualified experts, having undergone up to four years of additional post-graduate education (beyond dental school). You are in safe hands with these experts whom have more than 10 years of experience in specialist practice each. Thousands of patients have benefited from their friendly and caring treatment.

What are these dental specialists?


A prosthodontist deals with the restoration and replacement of broken, decayed, worn, and missing teeth with attractive and functional restorations such as crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants.


Periodontics is the prevention and treatment of diseases and defects of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Periodontists treat gum disease, rebuild lost gum and jaw bone and place dental implants. You can find out more about the work of a periodontist by visiting the following external site – www.perio.org*


Orthodontics is the straightening of crooked teeth using either fixed or removable braces, both in children and adults.

Orthodontics is more than creating beautiful smiles, but also to enhance the longevity of teeth by correcting bite problems.

It is the combination of these dental disciplines that makes the Share a Smile centre unique. In addition, our team is strengthened by two Associate Dentists, visiting anaesthetists, and 14 supporting team members. Each of our dental specialists is registered with the General Dental Council and are members of the British Dental Association* which is the professional association for dentists in the UK.
