James HarrisonClinical director
BDS (Newcastle 2006)
I took over Blossom Dental Care and Implant Studio in 2012 with the view to building on the practice’s already strong reputation for delivering the highest standard of family dentistry. My vision was to create a practice that focuses on providing unparalleled patient care and offers the highest quality dentistry available. Blossom Dental Care is a full-service dental practice where patients are able to come to us for their essential family dental care all the way through to comprehensive cosmetic and implant work.
The qualities of excellent communication and trust form part of our commitment to you and I have carefully chosen a great team of people who are able to provide you with the experience and level of service that modern dentistry demands.
Since graduating from Newcastle University I have undertaken extensive postgraduate education and I am a member of the AACD (American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) and the BACD (British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) two organisations dedicated to the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. I am also a member of the ADI (Association of Dental Implantology), which is the largest organisation in the UK dedicated to improving the standards of implant dentistry.
BDS Kings College London 2013
After graduating from King’s College London I completed my foundation training in a popular mixed practice near York providing high quality family dentistry. Following my foundation year I worked as a community dental officer in County Durham developing my skills looking after very nervous adults and children; helping them feel at ease at all times through their treatment.
During this time I was awarded the postgraduate dental diploma, the MJDF, from the Royal College of Surgeons England reflecting the developments I had made professionally. This, in combination with the completion of my year as a Senior House Officer in Oral Surgery will allow me to provide high quality NHS and private dental care. I am excited to be returning to general practice where my passion in dentistry lies.
I am recently married and have bought a house and settled in Ripon. In my spare time I enjoy going on walks with our dog and visiting my many nieces and nephews. I am a keen sports fan particularly enjoying football and rugby.
LMD (Portugal 2010)
After qualifying from Oporto University in Portugal, I have worked in the UK for a number of years during which time I have been committed to delivering dentistry of the highest quality. Through this commitment I have attended numerous courses in the UK and Portugal and recently completed a year-long course in restorative dentistry at the prestigious Paul Tipton Academy in Manchester. In my spare time I enjoy travelling and spending time with friends and family.

I am the dental therapist at Blossom Dental Care York and graduated in 2009 with honours from the University of Leeds Dental School.

Dip Dent Hygiene & Therapy
I qualified as a Dental Therapist & Hygienist from Leeds Dental School in 2015. My ethos is that each patient’s individual health and well being are my first and foremost priority. I have a great experience in restoring the health and smiles of a variety of patients ranging from complex medical conditions, oncology (cancer) patients, anxious and dental phobic patients to children of all ages. I enjoy reading research papers on the latest dental products and treatments. As a Dental Care Professional I believes you never stop learning about oral health and the advances in oral health products, treatments, advice and care and this is to ensure my patients receive the most up to date and evidence based information.
Outside of dentistry, I like to stay healthy by being active such as long walks, swimming and the gym. I also enjoy delicious food so research and trying new healthy recipes are some of my favourite pastimes. I have somewhat of a creative side and part takes in a number of activities such as making my own clothes, knitting and drawing.’
Dip Dent Hygiene & Therapy
I graduated with Merit in Dental Hygiene and Therapy in 2013 from Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry. I have been working in York for the past 3 years. I have a genuine passion for dental hygiene with oral health promotion and education one of my dental strengths. I believe I am very emphatic and caring. I like to take time with my patients to explain everything clearly, carefully assessing their treatment needs in order to tailor an individual hygiene plan and make patients feel great abut their smile.
I have thrown myself into the lifestyle of York by joining a netball team, tennis and Badminton clubs as well as a pilates class. I also have a passion for music, particularly musical theatre.
