Meet The Team


Ilana Pine

Dr Ilana Pine

I qualified from the University of Manchester in 1998. I completed my vocational training in 1999 during which time I took on some large restorative cases.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and have a special interest in endodontics (root treatment). I have been in General Dental practice since I qualified and really love the variety!

In 2012 I completed my MFDS exams at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
I place great emphasis on making my patients feel at ease in the dental chair both with my gentle approach and with the in-chair entertainment system.

I offer cosmetic options to all treatments and can help you improve your smile both functionally and aesthetically.
I look forward to welcoming new and existing patients into my purpose built, state-of-the-art new premises in Prestwich.
See you there!

Dr Leo Klein

I qualified from the University of Manchester in 1970. Since then I have worked in general practice, always pushing myself to learn something new and develop my skills, working in Germany for years where I learned some amazing dentistry not generally done in the UK. My area of expertise is restorative dentistry. This is building up the teeth and replacing missing teeth, as well as cosmetic dentistry. I use a variety of options from dentures, to implants with many other options in between, as well as full mouth reconstruction.
In 2012 I completed a diploma in implant dentistry.

I am delighted to work with my daughter Ilana who has worked hard to create a wonderful environment in which to work, with all the equipment essential to proper treatment planning including state-of-the-art panoramic X-rays.

I look forward to treating long-standing patients at Love-Teeth as well as welcoming new patients and challenges!
