Here at Caversham Heights Dental Practice we aim to provide you with a welcoming and professional service from start to finish.
We have created a family friendly environment where patients of all ages are put at ease. Our dentists pride themselves in having a preventive based approach to dentistry, encompassing minimal intervention and offering all modern forms of treatment. We treat patients via a holistic approach to give you the best care possible.
Katy Sansom BDS
Katy is the Principal Dentist and began working at Caversham Heights in December 2011. Katy enjoys all areas of dentistry and is happiest when a patient is smiling too.
Katy lives in Woodcote and has two energetic boys, Matthew and Finlay, who tend to occupy most of her time outside of the surgery. If she does manage to find a few minutes she enjoys mountain biking and gardening and especially loves a fast horse ride in Windsor Great Park.
Katy strongly believes in a preventative and minimally invasive approach to dentistry and enjoys improving her patient’s smiles with these principles in mind

Stephanie Brown BDS
Stephanie has been working in general practice for more than twenty five years: her strengths are good communication and putting people at ease; she is particularly good with anxious patients. Stephanie is experienced in all aspects of dentistry: from tooth whitening and cosmetic work to white fillings and root treatments, but the most rewarding part for her is when the patient has had a pleasant experience and is pleased with the final result.
When at home, Stephanie goes for long walks with her labradoodle Sammy and has recently acquired an allotment. She exercises at the gym regularly and enjoys running and yoga. Stephanie has 2 teenage children that keep her on her toes and a very tolerant husband.
