Meet the Team

Any organisation is only as good as its people. We believe that we have put together a team that will make your visit as pleasant an experience as possible from the moment you walk in. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to enjoy a very low turnover of staff, which has allowed extra continuity in patient care. That we all know each other well and work well together is reflected in the ambience of the practice.

He has perfected his use of Cerec technology from its pioneering days in the early 1990s to its present outstanding standard for the provision of high quality dentistry. John is a family man who also enjoys running on Ilkley Moor and biking to work… weather permitting!
