I Graduated as a Dental Surgeon with several awards, including best dental student of the year, from the University of Manchester. I have completed further qualifications, including MFGDP(UK), Dip Rest Dent RCS Eng and gained a Masters Degree in Restorative Dentistry. I have taught at the University of Manchester, my students included my sister and brother-in-law (who now have a practice of their own) and my brother (now a Specialist Periodontist).

I enjoy my work and my enthusiasm reflects in my practice.
New patients are often surprised at how stress-free their dental check has been, our existing patient of course already know this! It’s always a pleasure to catch-up with my patients as well as reassuring them about their dental health.
I want to improve the dental health of my patients’, I reinforce the importance of regular dental care. I also make my patients aware of the advances in our profession and the ways in which this may benefit them. I have a clinical team of caring individuals, who share a highly ethical, professional and responsible attitude to their work and I am confident in referring my patients to them for Advanced or Specialist care. It’s great that we can offer so many options to our patients.
I have really enjoyed developing Holly House, into the Fantastic Dental Practice and the fantastic Dental Team we have today! I want to keep improving our patients’ experience of their time at Holly House and I know my team share my vision!
Dr Khurrum GS Hussain
Hi, I’m Dr Khurrum Hussain. I completed my Specialist training in Periodontology at the World-renowned Eastman Dental Institute, University College London (UCL). I am registered on the GDC’s Specialist list for Periodontics and also with the European Federation of Periodontics (EFP).
I have worked in Specialist practices limited to Periodontics for several years. I am a Clinical Teacher at undergraduate and postgraduate level at the University of Manchester Dental Hospital.
My ethos is to treat patients with periodontal challenges. I aim to educate and motivate patients about this condition and I have excellent results with my periodontal care, and also in the management of PERI-IMPLANT disease.
Many of my patients have severe gum disease, or failing implants, and are finding it difficult to manage their condition. I help them to make difficult decisions about the prognosis of their teeth or implants and help them to overcome their anxieties. I provide solutions resulting in health and combat the progression of disease.
I also provide cosmetic gum surgeries to assist with restorative work that may require recontouring of your gums, mucogingvial surgery

Hi my name is Grace and I joined the team at Bosden Farm Dental Practice in 2016 as a receptionist. Having seen the team at work I decided to begin my training as a dental nurse and am currently completing my Diploma in Dental nursing at the University Dental Hospital of Manchester.
My favourite part of working in a dental practice is getting to know each patient and making them feel comfortable when they come to the dentist.
In my spare time I enjoy an active lifestyle and go to the gym regularly, I also enjoy skiing, horse riding and playing tennis on the weekends.
Hi my name is Lisa Preston. You may see me at reception, welcoming you to Bosden Farm Dental, or you may see me assisting the dentist in the surgery, I am multi-talented! I have been a dental nurse/receptionist for many years, and have worked in several different dental practices over that time. Interestingly, my dental nurse story actually began at our sister practice, Holly House Dental, as a trainee nurse! It was lovely to come full circle and be a part of such an amazing team!
Hi, I’m Charlotte. I maybe the first person you see at the practice, as my role at Bosden Farm Dental Practice is to make sure you have a very nice start to your patient journey with us, I am the receptionist. I will also be the familiar smile that meets you at the end, to arrange your next visit to us! Don’t worry, everyone you will see in the middle is also very nice!
