Sophia Bow BA
Clinic Director

Leeds, Barkisland & Brighouse

I have been involved in the provision of dental and aesthetic services for over 10 years in and around West Yorkshire. I set up the The Temple Practice with a view to providing the kind of services I believe users want.

I am dedicated to finding affordable solutions to the ever increasing demands of today’s users. I believe that a high quality service should not be exclusive to only the very wealthy, but should be available to the entire cost-conscious population.

I like to keep ahead of the latest developments in products and technology, and aim to provide services I am happy to use myself.

I like to keep up with the technology that keeps me looking youthful, internet technology is a different matter! Click on my picture to read my blog.

My interests include cooking, portraiture and relaxing in the North-West Highlands of Scotland.

Debbie Kendall GDC Reg Num; 113120
Clinic Manager

Leeds, Barkisland & Brighouse

I have been involved in dentistry and cosmetic procedures for over 13 years, and have helped develop some of the busiest practices in West Yorkshire. For the last 4 years, I have developed a very keen interest in the provision of laser and cosmetic procedures and have established myself as the provider of choice to many hundreds of users with many more being referred to me by my existing users.

I am always delighted when my patients inform me of the huge boost to their confidence post-treatment – I have even had tears of relief and joy from some of them!

My interests are keeping fit, shopping and socialising as I love meeting new people.

Professor Sonia Williams MBE
Prof. of Dentistry & Nutritional Therapist

Leeds, Barkisland & Brighouse

I am passionate about the role of good nutrition in helping to maintain and improve health. Experience has shown that health can be optimised given the right advice and encouragement.

I believe it is important to work with people to find out what changes they can make, what is possible and practicable for them.  There are plenty of positive affordable options and menus.  In the end it is the individuals themselves who will chose to make the appropriate changes.

I always look to adjusting the diet in the first place, but functional tests may be recommended to check potential biochemical imbalances.  High quality supplements may also be recommended.

Whether people’s concerns relate to health issues, fertility or sports performance, good nutrition can really help.  I am so happy when people visibly improve following my advice.

My interests are related to fruit & vegetable gardening, sailing, teaching and research, complementary therapies and socialising.
