Dr. Andrea Ubhi BChD

Andrea is multi-award-winning, a small business entrepreneur, director of three companies, author, co-founder of an organisation inspiring women, deeply involved in supporting survivors of trafficking in Nepal, and a motivational speaker.

Andrea grew up in the Lake District and was the first in her whole extended family to take A levels, going on to do dentistry at Leeds, graduating in 1991. 

In the late 1990s, Andrea was blown away by the cosmetic dentistry that was being done in America. It was not like any dentistry that she had seen before. So she went over to learn the skills at an eminent practice in Maddison Avenue, New York. She brought these techniques back to the UK and became one of the pioneering cosmetic dentists in the country.


After working in inner-city Leeds for a few years, she opened her first cold-squat NHS practice in York in 1996 while she was on maternity leave with her first child. "What can I say? It was a great time to do it!" This practice grew over the years to become one of the largest NHS practices in York. She sold it in 2014 as a 9 surgery practice.

Realising that it was difficult to provide world-class cosmetic dentistry from the same premises as a large NHS practice, she opened her private boutique practice, Andrea Ubhi Dentistry, in the center of historic York, in a beautiful building near the Minster in 2002 during her third maternity leave! In 2015, she moved this private practice into the present newly refurbished premises. This Grade 2 listed building enabled the practice to double in capacity, and takes referrals from over 50% of the region's general dentists, and is a national centre for dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. 

Andrea also has two property companies.
