Our Team

Dr. Kit Merrill (BChD)

I graduated from Leeds Dental Institute in December 1992 and following that I spent 2 years working in Yorkshire in a busy City practice. After several locum appointments providing holiday cover in many different parts of Australia, I decided to settle closer to my birthplace.

I have now been practising dentistry in Bristol for 27 years and I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry, with a keen interest in Orthodontics using a variety of methods including clear aligners. I particularly enjoy the level of experience I have obtained during this timescale as it enables me to confidently provide a high standard of care and advice for all.

I have lived in the Southville community close to the surgery for 25 years, I got married in the area and my two children go to the local school. 

Eugenijus Vladimirovas (BDS)

I graduated in 2007 from Kaunas Medical University. Since my graduation I have been very interested in professional development. It brought me to my first workplace – one of the biggest implant practices in Lithuania, where I gained valuable experience treating many patients who needed complex dental treatment and implants. 

In 2011, I started working as an NHS Dentist in Somerset in the field of general dentistry. Starting in October 2015 I have been working as a fully private dentist in Bristol, providing general dentistry alongside dental implant treatment.

I enjoy providing quality dental care. My focus –  honest advice to the patient and lasting dental treatment.

Nuno Borges (LMD)

I graduated from the Faculty of Medicine in Coimbra, Portugal in 2007. I have worked in Bristol ever since in a busy mixed practice for 15 years. During this period, I have completed various postgraduate courses covering several different aspects of Dentistry. I have a keen interest in Periodontology and will be starting soon a postgraduate Masters at the University of Bristol.

I enjoy treating nervous patients and changing their perceptions regarding dental treatment, which I find very rewarding. I particularly enjoy creating long-lasting friendships with the patients I come across.

Outside of work I am a big football fan and enjoy watching Bristol City and Benfica. I am very passionate about the sea and the countryside where I enjoy going for long walks with my wife.

Ben Lamb DipHE

Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Cardiff University in 2009. I then relocated to Hampshire, working in several dental practices there for 8 years and have since moved back to Bristol. I enjoy providing dental hygiene treatment for all patients but take particular pride in helping nervous patients feel at ease with their dental experience.
