Rhodri Davies BDS

GDC no.75981


Rhodri’s interest in dentistry started with school work experience at his local dentist in Brecon. After qualifying from Cardiff Dental School in 1999 he was asked to return to Brecon where he remained as an associate for the next few years gaining experience in a busy family practice with a specific interest in minor oral surgery and Orthodontics.

In 2002 Rhodri became an associate at a prestigious cosmetic practice in the City of London to pursue his interest in cosmetic dentistry. A few years later the draw of the South Coast led him to become an associate at Westleigh Dental and then a partner in 2006.

Since then Rhodri has had the pleasure of taking over from long-serving partners Ian Hallam MBE and Paul Shill and continuing the principles of long-term preventive family dentistry while always looking for new ways to improve the health and appearance of a smile.

In his time away from Westleigh Rhodri enjoys every minute with his young family and is an avid follower of Welsh Rugby.
