Dr Malcolm Torz BDS

Malcolm qualified as a dental surgeon from Kings College London in 1990. He has spent the last 21 years in the field of oral surgery, starting in hospital posts and then founding the London Day Surgery Centre in 1994 with Rochelle Bass. They have grown the Centre over the last 18 years into a multidisciplinary dental and aesthetic centre, employing the talents of a range of specialists, dental nurses, administrators and associated support staff.

Malcolm has also been involved in facial aesthetic treatments for over a decade. He was the initial discoverer of an application of the N-lite laser for the treatment of active inflammatory acne, which remains an excellent tool in its treatment to this day.

In addition he has extensive experience in anti-ageing treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers. He regularly updates his knowledge and expands his experience, travelling to Paris 3 or 4 times a year in order to work with and learn from colleagues who he regards as leaders and visionaries in the field.

The last few years has seen the LDSC grow and become a busy dental hospital and aesthetic clinic. Malcolm is proud and excited to be working with Rochelle towards future growth as we approach 20 years of healthcare excellence in North London.

Mrs Rochelle Bass

Rochelle met Malcolm whilst working part-time in the oral surgery department at Edgware General Hospital. They remained in touch after their contracts ended and Rochelle’s entrepreneurial skills convinced both her and Malcolm that there was an opportunity to develop. Her natural talent for networking, combined with her experience both in healthcare and business enabled her to see how they could change the way oral surgery was delivered in the area by setting up a referral centre in North London.

Much fundraising and knocking on doors led to the opening of a small centre in Mill Hill in January 1994. Once this proved a success, Rochelle was instrumental in finding new, larger premises in North Finchley.

Rochelle has steered the LDSC to great success as Managing Director and continues to drive the Centre towards new opportunities and goals.
