Meet Dr Sia Maani
GDC No: 72841 (reg. since 1997)
Hi. I graduated from Gothenburg University back in 1992. Since then, I have been on a lifelong quest to learn more about life, people, health and teeth!
Following my dream of creating a state-of-the-art, holistic dental practice, where patients are treated as people, not just "teeth", IQ Dental & Implant Centre was established in 2005.
In the last eighteen years, I’ve carried out postgraduate trainings in many areas, some of which are; Dental Implants and Bone Grafts, Fixed & Clear Braces, and Smile Design with porcelain veneers. We, at IQ Dental, use the Damon System to straighten your teeth with light force fixed braces. This system gives you a beautiful smile without the discomfort of the traditional braces, and in a shorter time.
For appearanceconscious patients, we offer Invisalign, the almost invisible braces. This system will take care of minor to moderate misalignments of your teeth. I’d like to take a holistic approach when communicating with my patients. Practicing Acupuncture and homeopathy plus a long experience in dealing with nervous patients help me achieve great results in giving people a healthier, more confident smile.
Yours in good health.

Meet Joanna Jones
GDC No: 4942 (reg. since 1995)
Hi I’m Jo and I joined IQ Dental in 2007 as a dental hygienist/therapist. I qualified as a Dental Hygienist from King’s College London in 1995 and taught at the Dental Institute where I achieved promotion to the level of deputy principal tutor in addition to working clinically in practice. A passion for education led me to complete a BA with Hons in post compulsory education and I teach in a variety of environments.
I work hard to build trust and tailor all appointments to the individual. Most importantly I pride myself on building a rapport with patients! I have gained the additional qualification of Dental Therapist and use this skill to perform routine dental procedures on children and some simple restorative work on adults in the clinical environment. Outside of work at the practice I spend time with my family and enjoy socialising and swimming with the Sevenoaks swimming club three times a week.
(Reception / Dental Nurse)
Hi, my name is Lesley, I qualified as a dental nurse in 1977 and worked in Bexleyheath for a few years. Then I had a break to have my children.
At my last practice I was an orthodontic nurse for 18 years. This was both very exciting and busy. Giving patients a new, beautiful smile is such a big thrill for us as well as the patient.
There is just my husband and I at home now as the children have flown the nest, so at weekends we go out on his motor bike and meet up with other bike owners.
I hope my years of nursing experience will be of help and hope to answer any questions you may have at the reception desk and in the treatment room.
