Orestis approaches dentistry as everything else important in his life, through the lens of “Do what you like most, enjoy it and do it extremely well”. His patients value him for being an extremely gentle and skilled pair of hands, an excellent communicator and someone who really cares and thinks from the patient's point of view about the treatment that he is providing. He loves dentistry and it shows.

The truth is it is mainly spent playing with Lego, role-playing superhero and going swimming with his older son.

Last but not least...

Dr David Klaff - Retired
GDC Registration Number 43510

Specialist in Prosthodontics

After 50 illustrious years, our friend and colleague Dr David Klaff retired from clinical dental practice in June 2017.

David was already in the process of introducing his patients to his colleagues with whom he has worked at LCIAD for the past several years.

David is still in touch with us on a regular basis to be able to give advice and guidance given his familiarity with your treatment history and will work closely with us to ensure that the continuity of your care following his retirement is as smooth as possible. As some of his patients have been seeing him for several decades, we appreciate that this can be quite a transition!

Please be assured that your level of care will continue in the same environment with the same team and same principles under which we already work. If you have any questions regarding your clinical care please contact the practice and would be pleased to address any queries you may have.

Dr Koray Feran BDS MSc FDSRCS - Clinical Director


Ron Goldstein wrote “If  the eyes are the window of the soul, then the smile is the window of the heart”. David Klaff spent five decades in dental practice, first as a general practitioner, then as a Prosthodontic Specialist, developing the skills to perfect the smile of his patients. Over the years he established expertise in restoring natural structure, form and function combined with natural aesthetics to the patients he has had the good fortune to treat.

He was a recognised opinion leader in the field of adhesive dentistry where his knowledge of bonding chemistry allowed him to guide his colleagues into really understanding the microscopic detail behind their day-to-day work. He would run approximately 50 hours a year of postgraduate teaching for many years on the subject of adhesive dentistry and composite resin restorations. His expertise was in restoring single and / or multiple implant placements and in providing restorations that gave acceptable longevity and ultimate aesthetic results. His patients at the practice still carry work that he had done three decades ago.

His main forte was fully comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning and he still attends the practice for group meetings and treatment planning sessions where he keeps everybody on their toes, always challenging his colleagues to really look closely at their observations, diagnoses and decisions.

Whilst he has retired from clinical practice he is still very active within his beloved profession. He is the only UK dentist to have been accepted as a member of the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry (BAAD); the European Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry EAED,  the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry; The American Academy of Restorative Dentistry.

He is still the treasurer of the International Federation of Esthetic Dentistry and not content with that is also about to publish a history of the European Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry later in 2019.

50 years dentistry covers a lot of developments. David has lived through all of them and personally knows many of the legends and grandfathers of our profession through the many courses, lectures, conferences and symposia that he has attended and given, and indeed still attends and gives, over the years. His presentation covering 50 years of dental practice which he tirelessly updates still is a tour de force of the best of our profession and their impact on our day-to-day work.

We miss having him at the practice but are pleased to report that he is still active in many ways.

Having retired, he has set up a new academy together with Dr David Winkler and Dr Koray Feran which we have called The European Academy of Teeth. The sharp-eyed among you will notice that the meetings for this "Academy" tend to take place at the nearest steakhouse.
