john fentonGet in touch with John:

Dr John Fenton grew up in Batley Yorkshire and after passing his O levels moved to London to train at the Royal Dental Hospital Leicester Square where he qualified in 1979. Since then he has owned and run a respected dental practice in Harringay for the last 20 years, and is now also enjoying helping to run the dental practice in Winchmore Hill with his son James Fenton.

He has always been interested in all aspects of dentistry, especially in implementing new techniques and education. For ten years he was a dental trainer for the London Deanery which involved taking on young dental graduates and providing them with facilities and mentoring during their first year in practice. In order to do this Dr Fenton undertakes well over the standard G.D.C requirements for further professional education and so is well placed to give patients and dentists the best treatment and advice available. No longer teaching – He is now  currently Chairman for the local dental council for Enfield and Harringay.

John  is now a grandfather with eight grandchildren and four grown up children. In his spare time he enjoys travelling, swimming, karate and reading.

John  has a special interest in general dentistry, endodontics, minimally invasive dental treatments and dental teaching.
