Charlie Hooper BDS(Hons)

Charlie qualified with honours from King’s College London in 2018. Having holidayed in and around Padstow with his family almost annually for many years, he’s over the moon to be surrounded by Cornish pasties, cream teas, ales and ice creams (especially hedgehog ice creams!). He’s also very pleased to be near so many beautiful beaches and coastal walks. When he’s not exploring Cornwall, or indulging in the local food and drink, he likes to do a bit of dentistry!
