Meet Our Team

Dr. Lizet Horn

Principal Dentist, BcHD and BSc (Hons)

Dr Horn’s extensive career in dentistry has included working as an Associate at an NHS/Private Dental Practice in East London followed by working at a multi-disciplinary clinic in Fleet Street. She became a partner at Worthing Road Dental Practice in 2011 and owner in 2016.

“Worthing Road Dental Practice has always been a family practice. As a dentist it has always been my first priority to listen and make anxious or worried patients feel comfortable. I also want patients to be well informed and knowledgeable about their dental health care (which starts at home) all the way through to treatment plans. It is very rewarding seeing how dental phobic patients’ self confidence grows as we moved through dental procedures and treatments.”
