Julia Payne BDS (Brist 1985) MFGDP(UK)
Dentist

Hello, my name is Julia Payne and I am proud to be one of the dentists, as part of our caring team here at 207 Dental Care.

I qualified with honours from Bristol Dental School in 1985 and moved straight into general practice where I have been working for over 30 years. I have also furthered my qualifications with the MFGDP (UK) diploma in General Dental Practice. I am also a practising member of the Academy of Experts.

I love my job as a dentist and have sought to build up a thriving dental practice with a reputation for high quality dentistry. The special care I provide means that I have many long-standing, loyal patients who have become more like friends over the years.

It’s fantastic to transform someone’s smile and see the happiness on their face when they look in the mirror. It’s a real confidence booster!

When I am not working I like to spend my spare time with my lovable husband, Phil and our five children between us – not to mention our three dogs! We love the outdoor life including snow skiing, water skiing, and long walks in the countryside.

Eric Easson BDS (Manc 2001) MFGDP (UK)
Dentist

Hello! I’m Eric Easson, and I am very happy to be working with Julia and the rest of the team at 207 Dental Care. I qualified in 2001 from Manchester University Dental School with a nice surprise at graduation by being awarded the Academy of Operative Dentistry Award for excellence in clinical skills, and also an award from The Dental School Alumini for my final year elective presentation.

I have enjoyed working in General Practice for the past 14 years with a particular interest in Endodontics and Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Dentistry. I also share my expertise with students at the Manchester Dental School, where I have taught for 11 years. In 2006, I gained the MFGDP (UK) diploma in General Practice and I have recently graduated a Masters degree in Medical Law (LLM) from Cardiff University with Merit, and work Part-time for the Dental Defence Union as a Dento-Legal Adviser.

Outside dentistry I enjoy mountain biking, golf, and motorbikes and have recently finished building the bike I have always wanted; a tiny very, very black Harley-Davidson. It’s far from reliable so it’s a good job I take the train to work!
