Francois VanneremBDS MJDF RCS (Eng)
Francois has been treating patients at Horbury Dental Care since 2015 when he graduated from Newcastle Dental School. He has taken the lead on introducing digital dentistry to the practice.

We are then able to provide a new crown within one appointment – rather than waiting for two weeks. Francois also carries out Invisalign teeth straightening and is completing a Diploma in Restorative Aesthetic Dentistry in order to further develop his interest in cosmetic treatments. In his spare time Francois enjoys keeping fit and playing tennis.
