Meet The Burton Dental Team
Dr Rami Youssif
BDS (Glasgow), RCS, Mcs Implantology (Cardiff)
Hi my name is Rami. I am the owner and clinical director here at Burton Dental Lodge.
I graduated from Glasgow University, school of dentistry where I gained invaluable knowledge and experience in general and rural dentistry. I was placed in West of Scotland and Highlands where Primary care dentistry was only available and any referral would mean a long commute to the city for the patient. This was the bases and nature of my surgical route as any complications were managed contemporaneously. I later moved on to Edinburgh where I completed my vocational training and had the experience of working in several private settings where I advanced my cosmetic and restorative knowledge. At this point I began to develop a love for the surgical pathway in dentistry and opted for the opportunity to further my studies and experience in the Cardiff school of dentistry where I was exposed to a vast amount of maxillofacial technicalities alongside the highest trained professionals. I was able to further my surgical skills and understanding to be able to handle any complications and advanced procedure around the world of Implantology from sinus lifts, block bone grafts, implant failure and management, full mouth and complex rehabilitation cases to the simple single unit cases. In addition, I was exposed to treat patients under local, conscious and general anaesthetic sedation. Having achieved a postgraduate master of science in Implantology at Cardiff university I decided to move back to my home town of Boston, Lincolnshire to set up a dental practice. Burton Dental Lodge took around 18 months from the moment planning was approved. In the meantime, I gained my International Team of Implantology membership and my Royal College of Surgeon membership where I also advanced my keen interest in facial aesthetics. Burton Dental Lodge is designed to offer a relaxing environment whilst bringing together state of the art equipment along with other medical disciplines,in order to provide the patients with an up to date service.
Looking forward to meeting you!
Dr Himanshu Kishnani
BDS, Mcs Implantology (Cardiff)
Hi my name is Himanshu. I am pleased to say that I am a dentist at Burton Dental Lodge.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and since graduating I have enhanced my knowledge in endodontics (root canal treatment) and implant dentistry by attending advanced courses and completing a master postgraduate degree at the prestigious Cardiff university. I have also worked in a number of private dental practices where I have enhanced my restorative skills, biomaterial science and dental implant procedures for the replacement of missing teeth.
Having obtained clinical knowledge and applications from all aspects of dentistry, I have been able to exercise them to give my patients the best treatment options to restore their dentition.
Besides my professional interests, I enjoy travelling whilst taking professional photographs to capture the moments.
Looking forward to meeting you.

Dental Radiologist Nurse
Hello, my name is Daisy.
I trained as a dental nurse at the University of Northampton for two years where I graduated with a foundation degree. The course involved attending different placements throughout the two years of training which consolidated my theoretical knowledge. I have experience in NHS general practice, private general practice, hospital maxillofacial and community settings. I enjoy working here at Burton Dental Lodge as you have an opportunity to liaise with patients – get to know them and provide tailored complex treatments. I have a special interest in implant therapy and sedation.
During my time here at Burton Dental Lodge. I have been able to carry out a dental radiography course where I have achieved a qualification by the British Dental Association in Dental Radiography. This achievement has widened my skill set in dental nursing and has enabled me to not only take Intra-oral x-rays but advance in radiology techniques such as Orthopantomogram and Computer Tomography images. I am also responsible for maintaining, auditing and calibrating x ray units at the practice.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
Hello, my name is Maria.
Before I started dental nursing, I studied health and social care at Lincoln college – I love all aspects of health, the human body and how it all works, however, dentistry is by far my favourite!
I really enjoy the warm, caring presence at Burton Dental Lodge and putting our patients at ease. I also really enjoy working alongside Dr. Youssif and the rest of my colleagues – I am delighted to be part of the team!
During my time at Burton Dental Lodge, i have had the opportunity to further my studies and complete a level 3 Business Administration course – this has enabled me to progress further within the practice.
After 4 years of being part of the Burton Dental Lodge team, I have been fortunate to see the practice expand within its team members and become a well-established business. With this experience, I have gained the skills to be able to mentor, co-ordinate dental nurses and encourage them to work to the best of their abilities, before and after completion of their dental nurse training.
Outside dentistry I like to spend time with my family and friends.
