HealthNatters Blog

I am Dr Isabelle Granger-Cohet, originally French and now Anglo-French, previously a dentist and now Co-Founder and Director of The Medical Chambers Kensington and La Clinique Française. 

I qualified as a dentist in France where dentists are addressed as "Dr...". So I'm a dental doctor and not a medical doctor.


I regularly talk to our clinicians and specialists about a huge range of health matters and have wanted to share my experiences for a long time. 


So I am now going to turn them into HEALTHNATTERS. My blog. As I need to do this without breaching confidentiality I may sometimes change the names of some of the people I refer to.


I hope you find this blog informative and occasionally entertaining.  Good reading.
