Bozena was born in Wolverhampton and qualified initially as a Pharmacist in 1986. She immediately entered Birmingham Dental School, qualifying in 1991. After practising for two years in Evesham she joined Ock Street Clinic in 1994 as Associate Dentist. Eight years later Bozena became Principal Dentist, since then leading the practice through a modernisation programme to adopt the most up to date techniques and improve the practice environment. In more recent years she has concentrated on gathering together a highly capable team of clinicians enabling Ock Street Clinic to offer the full range of expert treatments to suit every need.
During her time in Abingdon, Bozena has spent considerable energy in building her dental skills and has developed special interests in Preventative Dentistry, Endodontics, Restorative Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry. She is very active in continuing dental education, as a member of the Gloucestershire Independent Dentist study group, the Oxident study group and the British Society of Occlusal Studies. She is a Full Member of the British Association of Cosmetic Dentistry. Bozena is especially interested in dental occlusion and the treatment of headaches and upper back pain by balancing the jaw muscle actions which she does with the help of a visiting Chiropractor, Mark Anderson. In 2011 Bozena achieved certification in the Inman Aligner 12- week brace system.
Bozena has a wealth of experience in advanced dentistry and has helped many patients achieve beautiful smiles through cosmetic dentistry. She can offer the latest in minimally invasive techniques that have in recent years become a realistic alternative to more traditional veneer crown and bridge dentistry. Bozena is particularly skilled in the art of identifying the elements of a great smile and providing patients with appropriate treatment to meet their aspirations.
In her spare time Bozena is interested in weight lifting, cycling, foreign travel, and skiing as well as looking after her cats. She is also bilingual, speaking fluent Polish. Bozena’s partner, Nick, is an Optometrist who has also worked at Ock Street Clinic as the Business Manager since 2002.
