Our Dentists

Practice Principal
Paul Roberts BDS MJDF RCS

Hi, I’m Paul. I’m the practice principal. I graduated from Dundee University in 1998 and have worked in general practice since then, including a year working in Australia.

I also work as a Vocational Trainer to newly-qualified dentists helping them with any problems which may arise. I am committed to continuing professional development and regularly attend update courses. I have also completed a post graduate diploma giving me membership into the Royal College of Surgeons.

My particular areas of interest are cosmetic dentistry and restorative (crowns and bridges) dentistry. I have also completed my training in dental implants and I enjoy the benefits which these bring to patients.

Christopher Ogle BDS

Hi, I’m Chris. I graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 2009.

I completed my vocational training year in 2010 at West Calder Dental Care and because I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and gained plenty of valuable experience, I decided to remain at the practice and become an associate dentist.

I enjoy all areas of general dental practice, with a particular interest in restorative dentistry, including crowns, bridges, and dentures, and minor oral surgical procedures.

I regularly attend courses throughout the year, which enables me to keep improving and updating the dental care I offer.

Jenny Scott BDS

Hi, I’m Jenny. I graduated in July 2007 from Queen’s University in Belfast.

I completed my vocational training year at West Calder Dental Care which enhanced my knowledge and skills for working in general practice.

To adhere to continuing professional development guidelines, I ensure that my knowledge and skills are up-to-date by regularly attending post-graduate courses.

I am particularly interested in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, including crown and bridge work and plan to offer facial re-contouring through Botox® injections in the near future.

Dr Athanasios Giavasis DDS, MClinDent(prosth), MClinDent(Orth), MOrth RCS (Ed)

Thanasis is our specialist orthodontist. As a specialist he can fully utilise the latest tooth straightening techniques for the benefit of all ages – children and adults.

Thanasis has been transforming smiles since 2000. He is very experienced in fixed appliance treatment and can offer private alternatives such as invisible braces, clear ceramic braces and clear aligners.

Thanasis ensures he keeps up-to-date with new techniques and, as a result, is certified to provide invisible Incognito lingual braces and Invisalign or Orthocaps aligners.

Amy Beggs BDS (Dund)

Hi I’m Amy, I graduated in 2018 from Dundee University.

I am looking forward to working in West Calder and using the skills I have learnt during my time at university.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but my main interests are dentures and oral medicine.

Katie Ireland BDS (Dund)

Hi I’m Katie

I graduated from the University of Dundee in 2017 and completed my VT year in Rosyth, Fife.

I’m looking forward to covering for Jenny whilst she is away on maternity leave. I enjoy all aspects of general practice, but particularly restorative dentistry, extractions and treating anxious patients.

In my spare time I enjoy running, skiing and baking.
