Meet Dr. Filipe Pereira da Costa
Dr. Filipe graduated in Lisbon in 2004. His desire for exploration of other professional and
personal surroundings brought him to the UK, where he has been living and practicing
for over a decade.
He is a firm believer in the importance of constant self improvement and training and as
a result, he has completed several post-graduate courses.
One of Filipe’s most valuable skills is listening to his patients. Combined to his clinical
knowledge, reassuring and gentle approach, he continues to help many patients
overcome the longstanding fear of the dentist.
In his spare time, Filipe is an amateur musician and chef.

When the internal part of the tooth is exposed and contaminated (by bacteria or a
fracture for exemple), the core of the tooth needs to be treated before it is restored to
function. Endodontic treatment (more commonly known as Root canal treatment) is a
dental procedure used to treat the infection at the centre of a tooth, seal it and prevent a
secondary occurrence. It is not painful and can save a tooth that might otherwise have
to be removed.
Restorative Procedures [Fillings and Crowns]
Restorative procedures restore the shape and function of teeth. These can be done
when tooth tissues are lost due to tooth decay, trauma and can also be done for
Surgical procedures [Wisdom teeth extraction]
Occasionally, some teeth will need to be extracted for various reasons (orthodontic
reasons, caries, malposition). With careful planning and gentle management of the
tissues, these procedures are painless and with a minimum of postoperative discomfort.
