Originally from southern Germany, Dr Hofauer moved to England in 2006 and studied dentistry at the University of Bristol. She completed her Foundation Training as part of the prestigious London VT Scheme, having been taught by nationally and internationally influential specialists and consultants. Dr Christine Hofauer was the lead associate dentist at a busy London practice before joining Stradbrook Dental and Implant centre in 2021.
Since starting out in her dental career, Dr Hofauer has worked hard to stay at the top of her ever evolving profession. Her main interests are in conservative, minimally invasive micro-procedures and cosmetic dentistry involving veneers and composite bonding procedures.
Dr Hofauer feels that patient education about their oral health and providing patients with all the tools to prevent disease is of utmost importance. Dr Hofauer feels strongly about involving patients in decision making about their treatments by providing a better understanding of disease processes, prognosis and all up-to-date treatment options currently available that leaves patients in control over their oral health.
What Dr Hofauer loves most about dentistry is the ability to change a patient's perception about dentists in the most positive way. She achieves this by providing clients with enhanced confidence and trust in the profession, whilst lowering anxiety levels and managing expectations appropriately. She takes great pride in the ability to rapidly build good relationships with patients through excellent interpersonal skills and communication to create a relaxed and welcoming environment. With this ability, Dr Hofauer managed to change patient’s perception of ‘the dentist’ into a positive one where many - even extremely anxious patients - feel happy and confident to return to.
Dr Hofauer is also trained in Facial Aesthetics, providing solutions for lines & wrinkles and dermal fillers. Outside of dentistry, Dr Hofauer enjoys keeping fit and active doing yoga, running and skiing in the winter. She’s also a keen hiker and has conquered many of Bavaria’s alpine peaks. Escaping to the countryside whenever possible, away from city life allows her to relax and rebalance in nature.
Dr Hofauer is available from Wednesday – Saturday
