Dr Clare C Chavasse BDS DPDS

GDC number: 62906
Clare founded Titchfield Dental Health in 1993. She qualified in 1987 from Guy’s Hospital, London, and gained a post graduate Diploma from Bristol University in 2003.
Clare is passionate about providing top quality dentistry to her patients, in a way that is minimally invasive, cosmetic and natural looking, as per the philosophy of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, of which she is a full member. She now runs the Hampshire regional group for the BACD, so bringing more dentistry of the same philosophy and standard to the area by researching top quality speakers to speak to local dentists.
Clare has led the practice to win many awards over the years, including: Most Improved Practice, Best Employer, Best Team (twice) and Best Patient Care. She has a very clear vision – which can be summarised as that everything at this practice is about the patient and what is best for them.
Clare has several main interests in dentistry, namely:
Adult Orthodontics • Cosmetic Bonding • CEREC • Full Mouth Restorations • Occlusion (the way teeth bite) • Headaches and Tired Jaws • Treatment of Nervous Patients • Laser
When Clare gets time away from running the practice she enjoys spending time with her family, training her cocker spaniel, sailing on The Solent and can occasionally be seen driving her husband's steam roller at steam rallies!

Dear Dr Chavasse, my card says that this has changed everything for me and I want you to understand that I do mean everything! I know that I even developed a very dry sense of humour at a young age so that I rarely laughed out loud. It is only now that I really appreciate how damaged I have been by always feeling inferior because of this flaw in my appearance that has been a constant pain to me. Now that my treatment is complete I am so happy – not entirely “cured” but getting there! If you remember, I came to you out of “hope” and it has worked so thank you, thank you, thank you for your patience and your skill.
