Your dentists

Lester Aldridge BDS (Rand 1989), GDC 64596

I moved to the UK in 1995 to join Beechcroft and have never looked back.
I've enjoyed the friendly atmosphere I work in thanks to great support staff, colleagues and most importantly the patients themselves. This has allowed me to provide quality dentistry in a gentle manner that my patients appreciate and value.

Tony Cummings LDS (Glasgow 1980), RCPS, GDC 54611

I joined Beechcroft in 1995 after working in practices in Marlow, Aylesbury and Manchester. I'm really proud of the team we've built here and the professional and friendly service we all provide. My ethos is to treat patients as I would like to be treated. So far, this seems to be appreciated!

Christiaan Miles BDS (London 1999), GDC 76583

I joined Beechcroft in 2000 and since then have enjoyed developing many wonderful personal and professional relationships with my patients. This, combined with the excellent team at Beechcroft has allowed me to provide high quality dentistry for my patients in a friendly and relaxed manner.

Emma Townend BDS (Birmingham 2000), GDC 78096

I was invited to join the Beechcroft team in 2004 having worked in Marlow and Bracknell. I felt then, and still do now that we have a very patient focused approach to dentistry. I particularly enjoy engaging patients of all ages (my youngest patient being 12 months and oldest at 101!) in all stages of their treatment. I feel very fortunate to be in a career that enables me to be at the forefront of technology whilst still maintaining a very personal element.

Claire Rilett BDS (Newcastle 1999), GDC 76428

I feel very lucky to have been part of the Beechcroft team since 2006; it is a happy, ethical  practice and I think that this generates a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for the patients. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping nervous patients overcome their fears and undertake treatment with confidence.

Your specialists

Hugo PintoLMD (Lisbon), PGDip(Lisbon), MClinDent(Lisbon), GDC 233627
Specialist Periodontist
Academic Clinical Lecturer - University of Manchester

I joined Beechcroft Dental Practice in 2016 to take over from Sonia Vartoukian. As a registered specialist in periodontics, I focus my clinical practice around the diagnosis and treatment, both nonsurgical and surgical, of gum disease, aesthetic periodontal surgery and implant dentistry. I qualified as a dentist from the University of Lisbon & completed a 3 years full time Specialist Training Program in Periodontology and Implant Dentistry in Lisbon.

I am also a part time academic clinical lecturer in the postgraduate program in periodontics at the University of Manchester.

Your hygienists

Carol HughesGDC 1028

I joined Beechcroft in 1988, and apart from a move to the New Forest from 1998 to 2002 have been here ever since! I probably would not have stayed so long at Beechcroft if it was not such a friendly place to work, where I feel valued by my colleagues and appreciated by my patients, some of whom I have been treating since my first week.

Jackie WhiteleyGDC 5329

I joined Beechcroft in 1998 and have always found it to be a great environment of professional, friendly, like-minded people. The practice is a very caring and supportive place to work and we value and appreciate our loyal base of patients. I pride myself on providing gentle thorough treatment tailored to each patient and my passion lies in putting nervous patients at ease! 

Kate MackeyGDC 266937

I joined Beechcroft in 2016 after a career break to raise my children. It's a privilege to work at such a well established practice; with caring, dedicated staff and loyal patients. I'm passionate about my job and love working with my patients to help them achieve their best oral health.

Anna StockerGDC 6536

I qualified as a dental hygienist in 2004 from Kings college London but it was at Beechcroft where my passion for dentistry began 16 years ago working as a dental nurse. I have a keen interest in periodontics and have worked closely with many specialists. Outside of work I enjoy being a mum to my two boys, socialising with friends and skiing.

My treatment was carried out to
a high standard in a professional and
yet relaxed manner. I'd definitely recommend Beechcroft!
