The Waterside Dental Clinic Team

We love getting to know our patients, as by getting to know you, we can tailor our service to you and build a strong relationship with you. Dentistry is a long-term relationship and we want you to feel understood, cared about and that you can tell us anything in the full confidence that you will be helped with kindness, compassion and understanding.

In the meantime, please feel free to browse us; after all you need to know who is going to look after you.

We are a highly skilled team, committed to delivering quality dentistry in a friendly, compassionate and caring manner. With this in mind, we would be delighted to look after you, your precious family and friends. At The Waterside Dental Clinic, you are truly in safe and caring hands.

When you meet Dr Tim Williams, you will soon realise why he is an extremely well liked and popular dentist. He always makes time to listen to you and he is much loved and respected by his many patients for his kind and considerate approach. This combined with many years of experience, refined skills and attention to detail, a professional manner and a generous measure of good, old-fashioned humour really helps to instil confidence and put patients at ease.

Dr Williams qualified at the world-renowned University College, London and then undertook further examinations at The Royal College of Surgeons of England. He is registered with the General Dental Council and is a member of The British Dental Association. Dr Williams is also one of only a handful of dentists in the whole of Lancashire who are full members of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD), and thus has a proven track record in this exciting field of dentistry.

He has been called upon as a dental expert and advisor for BBC Radio Lancashire and has previously served as a clinical advisor for the Dental Complaints Service for some 10 years.

Dr Williams, who has practiced exclusively in private practice since 2004, has built a reputation based on what he has achieved. Prior to establishing The Waterside Dental Clinic, Dr Williams opened and established a very successful practice in the heart of Lytham. 

Dr Williams travels extensively to train in the very latest procedures and is passionately committed to extensive further education, which has taken him all over the country, and indeed across The United States of America and Europe, as Dr Williams fully appreciates that to provide the highest quality care requires tutoring from world renowned leaders in their field.

The General Dental Council (GDC), the profession’s governing body, requires that all dentists complete a minimum of 95 hours of certifiable continuing professional development on a rolling five-year cycle: in the last five years, Dr Williams has completed nearly 300 hours.

In his spare time Dr Williams enjoys travel with his wife and enchanting young son Rupert, music (he is an accomplished bass guitarist) and cricket. He also has a great passion for golf and is a member at Fairhaven Golf Club.

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr Maurice Levi. I am based here at The Waterside Dental Clinic and am delighted to be able to offer a full and speedy service for Endodontics (root canal treatment to save teeth, as a preferred alternative to extraction) and also Oral Surgery. I also accept referrals from the whole of Lancashire.

Since becoming an active member of the British Endodontic Society in 1985, I have developed a special interest in endodontics and over the next few years, an increasing amount of my professional time has become devoted to endodontics, such that I now provide an endodontic service to the same level as an endodontic specialist. I have attended just about every endodontic course available, starting with postgraduate courses at the esteemed Eastman Dental School in London, and in 1998 I was among the first clinicians in northern England to use a dedicated operating microscope for endodontics. It has been from this time that I started to take a significant number of referrals from colleagues, as I have considerable experience in this field, and I continue to be visiting endodontist to several other practices, as far afield as Leeds and Manchester.

In addition to this, I have worked as an oral surgeon at Harrogate District Hospital for many years, where I gained wide experience in this field. With this in mind, I am also happy to accept referrals for oral surgery of all types including difficult extractions, retained/ broken roots and wisdom teeth. 

If you need advice or if you would like to discuss any aspect of the service I can offer, Linda will be delighted to hear from you.
