About Us

About us

Our modern, hygienic practices are welcoming and staffed by caring dentists, nurses and hygienists who are all highly trained and experienced in delivering state-of-the-art dental and oral healthcare. We provide care to our patients through NHS or private funding and offer a comprehensive range of general and cosmetic treatments including Invisalign teeth straightening, teeth whitening and dental implants as well as essential dental care to give you strong teeth and a healthy mouth.

All of our treatments are based on our firm belief that a beautiful smile begins with healthy teeth and gums and we encourage all of our patients to make regular appointments so that we can prevent common dental problems and stop decay before it has time to do major damage. We routinely monitor all of our patients for early signs of gum disease and also for oral cancer which, if detected early, can be successfully treated.

Our treatments are personalised to meet your precise needs: we will treat your dental problems in the least invasive way possible to give you the results you need and want in the most efficient, cost-effective way. We aim to deliver treatments that are stress-free and comfortable using dental equipment and materials of the highest quality. This combination of expertise, modern techniques and equipment means that we have built a solid reputation in the Gainsborough and Sheffield areas as reliable, trustworthy dentists who give our patients the best quality of care.

I came to work as a dentist in UK in 2007 and I have a particular interest in helping my patients achieve their ideal smile. As well as courses in managing occlusion, I have undertaken courses, in UK, in the aesthetic restoration of teeth with some of the country’s and international leading aesthetic dentists including Dr. Frank Spear, Dr Lorenzo Vanini, Dr George Kirtley, Dr Rahul Doshi. I am able to offer my patients smile design, porcelain and composite veneers, aesthetic replacement of unsightly restorations (in composite and porcelain), all ceramic bridges.

I strive to stay up to date with the latest in techniques and technology in the dental profession that is why I continued my education in laser dentistry and incorporated the use of diode soft tissue dental laser into my daily practice.

I have undertaken Invisalign courses and I am able to offer my patients straight teeth without the need for even the most minimal tooth preparation.

With foundation course in botulinum toxin A, dermal fillers and hyaluronic acid and upcoming courses in the same area I shall be able to offer my patients facial aesthetic treatments as wrinkle injections have become an extension of today dentistry.

I think of dentistry as a combination of art and science and I always felt the need to help others and
to get great satisfaction from my profession.

I live in Sheffield with my husband and 2 children and away from work I have a keen interest in nutrition and enjoy biking, painting and spending time with family and friends.

Dentist
Rangika Weerakoon

Rangika first began studying Dentistry at University of Peradeniya, Sri- Lanka and started life as a dentist there. Soon after, she travelled all the way to the UK for her postgraduate studies in 2000, whilst also working as a senior house officer in Lincoln, Middlesbrough and Worcester Hospitals. During that period of time in her life, Rangika achieved the fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in oral surgery.

In 2006, Rangika started working for the Lincolnshire community service and dedicated time as an emergency community dentist and around this time she received her postgraduate studies certificate in dental sedation from the University of London in 2009. Since then Rangika has treated many anxious and often afraid dental patients through sedation to build their confidence and make them feel comfortable in the environment of a dental surgery which in turn she too finds rewarding to see.

Rangika carried on to work in Horncastle as a general dental practitioner until recently, where she took the leap to join our team at Dee Kay Dental. In her own words she says she has thoroughly enjoyed her time here working with an excellent team of equally compassionate and hard working co-workers. Alongside working at Dee Kay Dental, Rangika has also been contributing to Lincoln County hospital, once a week, as a staff surgeon in oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2007, to gain as much experience as possible.

Her utmost passion lies with oral surgery yet she has always enjoyed all aspects of dentistry as she loves that it lets her provide the best quality of care to her dental patients in every way. To gain more knowledge and interest in all new developments in dentistry, Rangika regularly attends courses available so she can grow to the highest of heights in her profession.

Outside of professional life, Rangika mostly spends time with her family and loved ones as her support system. She stays in touch with nature by exploring the UK’s peaceful countryside especially in a technologically thriving society. Her lifelong dream is to travel and experience the rest of the world; in the past Rangika has travelled to several diverse countries but knows there are so many more places still waiting to be discovered.
