About us

Jim Anderson

Dr James Anderson takes great pleasure in welcoming you to his new practice, Ice Dental Spa, in Duston Village, Northamptonshire.

James qualified from University College Dental School, London in 1985 and gained a further qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, later the same year.

Early dental practise was in Bermondsey , South East London, in a busy mixed NHS/Private surgery with a special interest in Oral Surgery and complex restorative procedures.

After 18 months spent here, James moved to Ferndown in Dorset where his skills were honed in a multidisciplinary practice with an emphasis on surgical dentistry and cosmetic procedures.

James married Catherine in 1986 and they have 2 children, Kyle and Flora, born in 1988 and 1990 respectively.

After 18 months working as a general practioner and after participating in many post-graduate training courses, James purchased a busy NHS practice in Towcester, Northamptonshire.

Over the following years this was developed into a solely private practice, providing patients with high quality dental treatment, and from 1997, the opportunity for the placement of Dental Implants.

In 2000 James sold this practice to the James Hull group with James staying on as principal dental surgeon .

By handing over the day to day running of the business, James created a situation which enabled him to concentrate on his special interest in Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry and over the following 10 years he completed a programme of training in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and the United States, which covered all aspects of Implants and Restorative procedures.

James initiated a referral service for local dentists and has worked with numerous practitioners over many years, placing implants for their patients and either adding crowns himself or returning them to their own dentist for the restoration work.

In early 2011 an opportunity arose to purchase the Duston practice from Dr. Ronak Patel who has now emigrated to Australia.

James is committed to developing Ice Dental Spa into the leading Dental Implant Practice in the East Midlands, where patients can enjoy a comprehensive service covering all aspects of dentistry within a friendly and professional environment.
