Dr Mariya Godsafe
Dentist (GDC No: 251794)
Mariya graduated from the University of Bristol in 2014. She spent her first 5 years working in Oxfordshire and decided to move back to Bristol in 2019, whereupon she joined The Bristol Dental Practice.
Mariya has completed numerous postgraduate training programmes covering a range of topics in the field of Functional Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry to allow her to offer the best holistic dental care for her patients.
Notably, Mariya was a finalist at the Aesthetic Dentistry awards 2021. So far, she attained a Certificate in Cosmetic Dentistry with Advanced Dental Seminars, a Certificate in Functional Occlusion training with Dawson Academy in Restorative Dentistry and Completed Invisalign training.
Mariya was inspired to undertake further training in administering BOTOX® to alleviate jaw muscle pain as a result of tooth clenching/grinding. She herself, having suffered from headaches and muscle tension as a result of tooth clenching, had this treatment along-side a muscle relaxing night guard. Mariya is keen to help other patients suffering from jaw pain and tension headaches. In keeping with her holistic approach to medical care, Mariya undertook comprehensive training at the Bob Khana training institute learning the skills of administering BOTOX® in the management of fine lines/wrinkles and jaw muscle pain. She is also trained to administer dermal filler to augment soft tissue plumpness. Dermal filler is made of Hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in skin. However, this reduces as we age. Dermal Fillers aid in slowing down the signs of ageing by restoring fullness and tissue elasticity.
Mariya enjoys treating patients with tooth wear which is becoming a more common problem due to our erosive diets and teeth grinding. Employing minimally invasive restorative techniques like gentle whitening, additive composite bonding and minimally invasive crown restorations ‘Onlays’. Mariya likes educating patients in how to break the cycle of tooth damage and preventing further wear through adjustment of bite issues, repairing the existing wear and getting onto a healthy maintenance regime is often all that is needed to maintain a healthy stable bite and smile.
In her personal life, Mariya enjoys being in the great outdoors – whether that be hiking, running, or skiing.
