Mr Dryden relocated to Norfolk in 1991 after living and practicing in Ireland and London. He took over a single surgery practice, predominantly NHS to start with, in 1996.

His popularity in the area increased significantly thanks to the professional, high quality, reliable treatment and also the personal touch and aftercare that he was providing with his initially small team (Mrs Sarah Woodhouse and Mrs Lisa Miller). He has since expanded the practice and converted it to a private one.

William is a believer in continuing his education and extending his knowledge to improve the service he can offer patients.

“What we learn at dental school, should only be the basis on which to build a continuing lifelong education. After nearly 30 years in practice my enthusiasm to improve my knowledge and treatments I can offer to our patients is as strong as ever.

Over the years I have undertaken many post-graduate courses to update my knowledge and learn new treatments and techniques to increase the range of treatments to our patients and to be able to take referrals from colleagues.”

William continuously progresses with his professional development and business qualifications. His main interests are root canal therapy, tooth wear and management of TMJ and wear cases. He has also received training in acupuncture and hypnotherapy.

He is a loving husband and father to his two offspring. In his spare time, he runs and cycles (watch out for any local charity races) and travels. His mind is always occupied by scientific news and he is huge Star Wars fan!
