Dr Tara Johnston

Dr Tara Johnston

General Dentist; BDS (Wales)

I qualified in 1997 with merit in Wales and initially worked in a hospital setting as an Oral Surgery House Officer in Cardiff. I then progressed into General Practice in the South Wales area. I am originally from Surrey but enjoyed the Welsh countryside and so chose to study Dentistry there. 

In 2004, I joined the team at Barkhill Dental Clinic. I knew straight away that Barkhill was an outstanding practice with a progressive vision and I was very excited to begin working at the practice. 

I am interested in many areas of dentistry and have undertaken additional training in:

  • Intermediate/advanced techniques of facial aesthetics (facial: furrows, wrinkles, contours) 
  • Conscious sedation for anxious patients
  • Paediatric dentistry

I have also gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in orthodontics, working closely with our Orthodontist, Dr Chiara Menghi-Barry and the late Dr David Barry.   

Since joining Barkhill Dental Practice, I have also been blessed with three lovely children. I very much enjoy family life, camping and walks together and simply time spent at home together.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, wood carving, piano, mountain biking, running, karate, camping and walking trips and gardening.
