Our dentists

Robert Nichols

BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery), PgDip Dental Implantology, MSc Endodontology

GDC Reg 61732
A member of the British Dental Association, the British Endodontic Society, the International Team for Implantology and the Association of Dental Implantology UK

Rob is committed to developing a centre of excellence for private dental care at Cottingham Dental Practice. His experience and knowledge of different techniques and approaches inform his methods. He helps his patients access the best solutions to maintain their own teeth, before exploring the potential benefits of implants and dentures if needed.

Rob graduated in dentistry from the University of Manchester (1986), and is the first dentist in East Yorkshire to have a Masters degree in Endodontology from the University of Chester (2013) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology from the University of Central Lancashire (2015). He enjoys delivering workshops and lectures to dental colleagues in the Hull area.

"I love to see the positive effects that a successful course of treatment can have on a patient's life. I seem to be one of the few dentists I know with combined interests in endodontics and implants. My approach is about the balance of predictable and cost-effective solutions."

When he isn't working, Rob is happily rebuilding and restoring a TR 6 two-seater sports car and a 1978 Landrover.

Owen Msimango

BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery), PgDip Dental Informatics, MSc Primary Dental Care

GDC Reg 77024
A member of the British Dental Association and the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry

Owen has a passion for general dentistry, especially paediatric dentistry, and loves improving the  dental health of younger patients. He took his dental degree in South Africa at the University of Witwatersrand, graduating in 1999, and moved to the UK shortly afterwards. He worked in Derbyshire for 23 years before joining Cottingham Dental Practice.

His qualifications also include a Postgraduate Diploma in Healthcare Informatics from the University of Sheffield (2006) and a Masters in Primary Dental Care from the University of Glasgow (2012). He enjoys other aspects of dentistry such as research, dental politics and education, and regularly attends courses delivered by leading experts around the world.

Our practice principal Dr Rob Nichols said: “I am very pleased that Owen has joined us. He has a great deal of experience and his training adds to and complements the range of options we can offer our patients.”

Owen also has a passion for cheesemaking (he is a member of the Specialist Cheesemakers Association), cycling, running and the arts - so there should be plenty to talk about in the surgery!
