Exciting Times at Illume

Here’s the latest news from Illume and look out for more soon! 

At the end of last year, we let you know that Simon Gumbley was relocating to Pembrokeshire. We have been busy here recruiting and are excited to share that we now have three new dentists to look after you. 


Firstly, Dr Phil Walker joined us at the end of April with great references and a passion for dentistry. Phil won many prizes during his student days at King’s College, London and he is now studying implant placement. When he’s not at work he’s a keen sportsman, enjoying golf, football, tennis and squash. He also plays saxophone and piano. Phil is at Illume on Mondays and Fridays. 

Dr Ewa Rozwadowska helped us out as a locum dentist earlier this year and we are delighted that she has accepted a permanent position with us. Ewa had her own award-winning practice in Stroud for over 35 years and Tim started his dental career working with Ewa from January 1985 until he came to Queens Road in June 1987. They are very pleased to be reunited. Ewa’s gentle approach has won her many loyal clients over the years. Ewa is working on Wednesdays and Thursdays in 2019 and will be here on Mondays and Tuesdays from 2020 onwards. 

We have had lots of lovely positive feedback from those of you that have already seen Phil and Ewa. 

Finally, Dr Ala Rozwadowska will be joining us on Tuesdays from September, and yes, they are related! Ala is Ewa’s daughter, loves being a dentist and thinks it’s the best job in the world. She loves meeting people, building relationships and trust with them so she can fully understand what her clients want from their dental care. Ala practises sedation and particularly likes treating nervous clients. When not at work she enjoys being a Mum to her two-year-old son, surfing, windsurfing and many other outdoor pursuits. 

Tim is currently with us every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and on some Mondays and Fridays when he’s not spending time running the business with Ali so whichever day of the week suits you best there’s always someone here to look after you. 

We are delighted to have in place a team of dentists with wide ranging skills and experience and as ever we are looking forward to seeing you at your next appointment.
