“First impressions are important and initially formed by facial appearance. This is the first part of you that’s introduced to the world.”
Lisa Greaney understands this – it is key to her ethos and outlook. During the very early stages of her career at the beginning of the century, she recognised a huge gap between restoring form/function and restoring ‘normality’ in both children and adults. Techniques have improved vastly during this time however, beauty is still frequently overlooked in the quest to remove disease. Lisa Greaney’s goal is to achieve both – no compromise on disease elimination but not forgetting that appearance is also paramount to personal wellbeing.
Lisa is registered under the following bodies:
The General Medical Council (GMC)
The General Dental Council (GDC)
British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS)
European Association of Craniomaxilofacial Surgeons (EACMFS)
Lisa Greaney is qualified in all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, having gained degrees in both dentistry (University of Bristol) and medicine (Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ Schools of Medicine and Dentistry). She won the British Dental Association Medal ‘For Clinical and Practical Excellence’ and was awarded Honours by the University of Bristol at the completion of her first degree. She is registered with the General Dental Council and the General Medical Council and is on the specialist list for Oral and Maxillofacial surgery.
Lisa first became interested in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at a young age, when allocated work experience in a cleft centre whilst at school. Having achieved both degrees and completed her basic surgical training, she successfully achieved one of four, nationally sought-after London/KSS-based higher surgical training posts in the renowned East Grinstead, Queen Victoria Hospital and Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford.
She is now a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, within the Craniofacial Team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Foundation Trust, where she carries out her NHS work. She specialises in the treatment of face & neck skin lesions (surgical dermatology), dental extractions (dentoalveolar surgery) and jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) as well as general maxillofacial trauma.
Lisa also has a passion for teaching: she is responsible for the school work experience programme at Chelsea and Westminster, and also mentors junior doctors throughout their training up to consultant level. She is an instructor for Advanced Trauma Life Support, a worldwide trauma course and is a member of the team who train the instructors to teach on these courses. She is also one of two teachers providing an annual hands-on course for dentists to improve their tooth extraction skills.
In her spare time, Lisa likes to play the violin and harp, and keeps fit by running and cycling. She spends as much of her time possible with her two young children who also do their best to keep her active!
When not busy at work, Lisa is dedicated to her young family.

A Pre-assessment (if required)

All details of your procedure will have been discussed beforehand.
Medical treatment can be an anxious time, which Lisa Greaney recognises. However, the procedure is not the end: Miss Greaney and her team will see you and provide your aftercare until you are fully recovered back to health.
