Our large, friendly team at Eustace & Partners, have a wealth of experience to offer you.
Although I was born in Scotland, I grew up in Liverpool and achieved my qualifications at Liverpool Dental School in December 1985. I began my career in general practice in various surgeries in the Liverpool area, which is where I met a young dental nurse Vivien who was later to become my wife. We moved to south east England in 1988, settling in the village of East Peckham and I started as an associate dental surgeon at Eustace & Partners on the 7th July 1988.
Vivien and I have two children, Calum was born in September 1989 and two years later my daughter Lorna was born, also in September.
I have always enjoyed my life at Eustace & Partners, it’s a happy and comfortable environment, so in 1998 after working at the practice for 10 years, I became a partner and became sole owner in 2012. I have never felt the particular desire to specialise in any one aspect of dentistry and enjoy the challenge of keeping up to date with the latest techniques. At Eustace & Partners, we are very lucky to be able to offer our patients the services of specialists that cover areas outside of my experience.
Beside my career I like to keep busy, after the usual demands of DIY and gardening, I enjoy spending time with my family, while fitting in some swimming, running and cycling, as I like to complete a few triathlons each year.
Geoffrey Pigot qualified at Guy’s Hospital in 1979. After being in a partnership at a family dental practice in South London for 19 years, he joined Eustace and Partners in 1998.
He met his wife Gill also a dental surgeon at Guys. He has 2 children at University and is a keen sportsman.
After graduating in 1999 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals I worked in the hospitals in the restorative dentistry and oral surgery departments. I then worked in practices in East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells before joining Eustace & Partners in 2004. I have chosen not to specialise, preferring the variety of general practice.
I live in Sevenoaks and have three young daughters who take up most of my time away from work. When I get the chance I enjoy sailing, skiing and sewing.
