Meet our dentists...
Mary Colette O’Sullivan, is known to all as Colette. I qualified as BDS (Batchelor of Dental Surgery) from Cork (Rep of Ireland) in 1993. After working in practices in Bedfordshire and Maidstone I bought Orchard House from Stephen Jeffery upon his retirement in June 1998. I have worked full time here since, other than maternity leave for my daughters Helen (2000) and Sarah (2005). GDC Number: 69033
My interest in postgraduate studies has led to the following postgraduate qualifications:
- MFGDP (Membership of the Faculty of General Dental Practice), Royal College of Surgeons London 2004
- Diploma in Restorative Dentistry, Royal College of Surgeons London 2010
-MSc (Masters) in Restorative Dentistry, Leeds 2014
My preference is, obviously, restoration of teeth, with composite (adhesive tooth-coloured filling material), crown & bridgework and dentures.
My other main interests are my dogs, who are usually found in the yard behind the practice

Hello my name is Anastasiya, but you can call me Ana. I am the new associate at Orchard House. I qualified as Doctor of Medical Dentistry (D.M.D) in 2017 from University of Debrecen, Hungary.
I consider myself very friendly and approachable, enjoy making patients feel at ease while providing them with best treatment possible.
I have recently relocated to the area and have been enjoying exploring my new surroundings.
During my spare time I like to spend as much of it as I can with friends and family. I am also a keen traveller and I really like trying new cuisines and exploring new cultures. GDC Number- 272741
Hello I’m Farzana, one of the new Foundation Dentists. I qualified from University of Plymouth, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, as Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) in 2019. I grew up with my aunty being a dentist which inspired me to be one as I discovered that there was so much interaction with patients and practical work involved.
I hope to make my patients feel comfortable and ensure they understand everything that’s going on while providing a high standard of treatment.
My hobbies include swimming, music, going on walks and travelling. I am a foodie and love to try different cuisines from around the world!
