Welcome to Honour Health. I’m the principal dentist Onkar Dhanoya and we look forward to providing you with the highest standards of advanced healthcare in our friendly environment.
At Honour Health, we know that there are links between dental disease and conditions such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, stroke and Alzheimer’s. Because of this, we believe that dental health should not be separated from general health, and this belief underpins the way we look after you. We also understand that how you look can affect your confidence and your happiness.
Ultimately, our aim is to help you to ‘Smile more. Live life’.

About me


I graduated as a dental surgeon from Newcastle University in 1985 and have been principal dental surgeon at Honour Health (formerly the Osborne Dental Group) since 1986.

As clinical lead, I am very proud of the dental surgeons at my practices, who all provide an excellent standard of care to their patients.

I was recently awarded a Fellowship by The Royal College of Surgeons (London). Fellowship is the pinnacle of membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. To be eligible for this award, I had to demonstrate a commitment to upholding the highest clinical standards and excellence in all aspects of my work.

The award of Fellowship by Assessment is an honour merited by the breadth and depth of achievement in dental surgery. I feel honoured and grateful that this esteemed body has acknowledged my commitment to my career in dentistry.

I was also delighted to be shortlisted as a Finalist for ‘Dentist of the Year 2019’ at The Dental Awards.


Areas of practice

Having qualified and practiced as a general dental practitioner since 1985, I have considerable experience of providing the full range of dental treatments to care for the health of my patients.
