Green Room Dentistry was founded by Sally and Richard in 1999. It was a big year for them, getting married in May, moving to Cornwall in September and opening a brand new practice in November. The 10th to be precise. From that day onwards we have stuck to our mission of investing in training the team and acquiring the best technology.

The current practice nestles within an acre of tranquil wooded gardens. It was purpose built, designed by the hugely talented architect Richard Mitzman, a former dentist himself. The building uses space and natural light to create a truly uplifting experience and provide the ideal setting to perform the standard of dentistry our patients have come to expect from the Green Room.

We have ample on-site parking to further reduce stress.

At Green Room Dentistry we like to do things our way and strongly believe in integrity. In our website and all images are genuine photographs of our practice, team and the dentistry we perform on a daily basis.

In a world where so many dental practices are swallowed up by large impersonal corporate bodies we thrive on our independence to do things the way we feel best. All too frequently we are reminded by our patients of how much they enjoy visiting the practice, how peaceful they find the experience and how they feel genuinely looked after.

Amazing!!! I have a terrible phobia of the dentist, but Sally and Kim are great! I'm work in progress with Sally at the moment and just after one side being completed today, I am ecstatic with the result and cannot wait for it all to be done; it will give me so much more confidence, as I have put off having work done due to my fear! Thank you so much!

I have attended Green Room Dentistry for many years and because l have always been delighted with the professional care given to me over that time my family are also committed customers. I cannot say that on any occasion l have attended that l have not received the most kind and professional care and attention from any member of staff working in that practice they all excel in delivery. Obviously l must mention Richard who has provided me with exceptional attention on every occasion throughout the 20 years l have needed dental care (and believe me not always simple care) Richard is a superb Dentist and a superb human being.

The staff at the Green Room were absolutely amazing today. I’d been awake all night in agony . I called at 8.45am and was given an appointment for 9.20am! The care I received was amazing. Constantly being reassured and encouraged throughout the extraction of my wisdom tooth. The whole process was completely pain free. A big thank you to all the staff. I’m in the area on holiday so not a regular patient.

Green Room Dentist Richard

Richard Hudson

Principal DentistGDC No: 68011

With a wealth of experience in implantology aligned with particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, Richard has earned the reputation as one of Cornwall’s leading cosmetic dentists.

As an undergraduate he won the Claudius Ash Prize for Operative Techniques and the American Association of Endodontists Student Achievement Award.

Richard started placing dental implants in 2003 and was on the committee of the Association of Dental Implantology UK representing the South West region from 2007-2008.

He accepts referrals for dental implants from other dentist practices, holds regular courses on implantology and is also registered with the Association of Dental Implantology UK and Straumann Group as a mentor.

Dentistry aside, Richard is an avid surfer, cyclist and gained a black belt in Tai Kwon Do. If it’s a real challenge with an element of speed, thrills or endurance then he’s probably done it! Richard’s current passion is Ironman distance triathlon. A few years ago he earned the fabled black jersey on completing the ‘Norseman’ and more recently finished Ironman Lanzarote in trying conditions. His latest result at the inaugural Ironman Portugal earned him a slot at the Ironman World Championships at Utah in 2022.

Green Room Dentist Sally

Sally Hudson

Principal DentistGDC No: 70542

Sally has a gift for helping those who are nervous about dental treatment. She is an excellent communicator, carefully listening and tailoring advice, with young and old alike.

With two decades of experience providing mercury free treatment, and more recently digital tooth scanning, Sally provides safe, contemporary dentistry. This means beautiful tooth restorations and highly accurate and comfortable mouth scanning instead of ‘tooth moulds’.

As the co-founder of the Green Room she is the driving force behind the business side of the practice ensuring efficiency and continued success.

Any spare time she gets she can be found playing tennis, running and more recently satisfying her mild obsession with golf.

Her goal for 2022 is running a marathon with Richard and their two children.

Patients often comment on her ability to clearly communicate oral hygiene education. She is also known for being thorough yet gentle in her treatment of patients and not a day goes past without positive feedback or a glowing recommendation.

To our delight Kim is a wonderful cook. She brings in her ‘treats’ on occasion and they don’t last long! Aside from dentistry and baking, she enjoys running and playing netball.

When Holly started at the practice as a trainee dental nurse, her incredible organisational skills soon became apparent.

Working with Sally she quickly took over the routine day to day running of the practice.

Holly has since moved on to become Treatment Coordinator assisting new patients with their enquiries, liaising with clinicians, technicians and patients to provide a smooth patient journey.

Janine has a wonderful sense of humour and an uncanny ability to remember something about every patient she meets. Her professionalism and passion for dentistry meant she became one of the first dental nurses in the UK to achieve the Certificate in Dental Implant Nursing.

Dental Nurse

Ellie was the best trainee dental nurse you could ask for. In fact so good we wanted to clone her! It’s not just us saying that, as this was recently confirmed by her course assessor who cannot find fault with her work. She’s also a great receptionist and can move seamlessly between the two roles.

Ellie is a self-confessed foodie and an oracle of the best eateries in Cornwall. She’s also a part time model and we are all so jealous of her constantly changing hair, especially Richard!
