Sarah Hassall B.Ch.D.

GDC number 82178

I joined Allenton Dental as an Associate in 2003 following my graduation from the University of Leeds. I am originally from the Midlands and really wanted to return to the area to settle close to my family. I take my profession extremely seriously and really enjoy all aspects of my work.

In 2010, I completed training in the administration of Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers on Harley Street in London. I am excited to add facial rejuvenation to my list of services, as I feel the perfect smile should not stop with the teeth and should include enhancement of the facial tissues as well.

I like to keep busy away from the surgery too. I have a keen interest in dental politics and I am a member of Derby City Local Dental Committee. I am also an adventurous traveller and I’m slowly trying to tick off every country on my list of places to visit in the world. I also enjoy reading and spending time with my nieces and nephews.

In September 2010, I am joining the ‘Bridge2Aid Dental Volunteer Programme’ in Tanzania for a fortnight. This will enjoy providing dentistry in rural parts of the country and training local clinical officers in emergency dentistry. I feel very proud to have been given this opportunity to use my skills to provide treatment to those usually unable to access it. You can read more at

I look forward to welcoming you at the Allenton Dental Practice in Derby.
