“I decided to set up my own practice because I wanted to offer great quality dentistry without any compromises. I love my job and my patients, and always strive to give them the best that I can. The team and my patients are like family, and make it a pleasure to come to work. The nicest part of my job is being able to help people (especially nervous ones!), whether it is to relieve pain or rebuild your smile, or rebuild your faith in dentists! In my spare time, when my 3 year old son Rohan isn’t keeping me busy, I love spending time with friends and family, and am a keen runner/gym goer!”
Dr Katie Chapman BDS (hons) Cardiff 2013 MFDS 2016
“Although Eastbourne born and bred, I graduated from Cardiff University with a First Class Honours Degree and have now obtained a Masters degree with distinction in Primary Dental Care. My few years at Lushington Road Dental Surgery have flown by and I have been very lucky to have such a lovely bunch of patients, as well as a newly refurbished top end surgery! In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit at the gym and walking in the lovely Sussex countryside with my gorgeous pug.”
Dr Lindsay Ford BChD Leeds 2007 MJDF 2010
Lindsay has been with us since September 2017 and has been a huge hit with both staff and patients.
“Originally from Newcastle, after qualifying I had a year travelling and working in Queensland, Australia. I have been in Sussex ever since, working in both NHS and Private Dental Practices. Having successfully undertaken postgraduate training to achieve my Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons, I have also achieved my Sedation qualification and I am able to restore Implants, as well as offering anti-wrinkle treatments, including Botox® and Dermal fillers. Having my own young family in Eastbourne means I am very family-focussed, and I love treating children, as well as treating the elderly and anxious patients, providing a calm, confident and reassuring approach to dental care.
In my free time, I love spending time with my family and enjoy keeping fit, having recently completed Eastbourne Half Marathon, ‘Tough Mudder’ and the London Triathlon!”
Mr Andy Gibbs CDT 2008
“Andy has been a fantastic asset to the practice, taking on most of our denture cases and also our Implant-denture work, and patient’s love his kind and caring manner.
“I hugely enjoy what I do, and feel privileged to do it. I love talking with and listening to patients as we discuss together how we’re going to go about making their new denture. Away from work I enjoy most sports or though nowadays my participation seems to be more and more from the comfort of a sofa.”

Miss Polly McGrane RDN 2008
“I qualified as a Dental Nurse in 2008. Because I work both in the surgery and on reception, my job is always interesting and varied, and I love the interaction with our lovely patients. Outside of work I enjoy going to the local theatre as well as dabbling in performing too as I am a member of the East Dean Players! I also love getting lost in a good book and spending time with my friends and family.”

I love nursing because I love being able to make people feel as ease during their visit. During my spare time I like eating out, shopping and spending time with friends and family”
Pamela Lindsay RDN 2001
“Originally from Scotland, I have recently moved to Eastbourne and found the people to be very friendly! The team and patients at LRDP have been just as welcoming, and I love the pink uniforms! I love being a nurse as I love meeting people and being able to help them. In my spare time, I love to travel, walk, and swim (especially in the lovely Eastbourne sea!)”
Mrs Linda Bonner
“I have worked on Reception at the Practice for over 10 years now and still love my job! I love chatting to the patients and making them feel at ease. Work isn’t really like work as we all get on so well and regularly go out together for meals and theatre trips. During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and fishing. I also love a good book and getting into the garden!”
I joined the wonderful Lushington team as a part-time receptionist over 18 months ago now and I am loving my role here. I am a Qualified Chartered Physiotherapist, so naturally am a patient-focused person and I love welcoming you all with a smile! In my spare time I love camping and going to festivals in ‘Eric’, my VW campervan’ and spending time with my two young grand daughters. I am also a huge Bruce Springsteen fan!
Additionally, Polly and Kim are also multi-talented trained receptionists!
