Excellent care requires excellent people

Every person in our Practice is essential to your care so we endeavour to recruit, train and retain the best people. Everyone who joins us understands our expectations and receives regular training and personal development to ensure we all share the same ethos of putting our patients at the heart of everything we do.

By providing a caring environment for everyone, we engender loyalty. As the saying goes – we don’t expect loyalty, we earn it. Our practice is part of Rodericks Dental, a company with over 70 practices across the country. We are different because our company is run by dentists – for patients.

Practice Manager
Becky Newton
NVQ L3 Oral Health Care:Dental Nursing& Indp Asses City & Guilds 2005 GDC 118132

I have 15 years dental experience within the industry, both clinical and management. I joined Rodericks in December 2017, as I was ready to face a new challenge with a company that puts their people and their patients first. My aim is to create the perfect patient journey creating a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with patients choice available. I am always happy to take feedback to learn from on how I can achieve this.
Outside of work, I am a keen keep fitter and an amateur boxer so most evenings you will find me in the boxing ring.
