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.

Abi France BDS (The University of Sheffield 2015)

I graduated in 2015 from The University of Sheffield with a Bachelors in Dental surgery. After graduating I undertook additional qualifications and courses with industry leading dentists, learning new and innovative techniques to be able to provide my patients with the most minimally invasive and preventative dentistry possible. I believe every patient deserves the best possible care and I strive to make sure that every patient has a personalised treatment plan aimed at their needs. One of my dental passions is to provide emergency dental treatments in third world countries. So far I have completed 6 trips – Ecuador multiple times & Peru. With more trips planned. As well as dentistry I also have a keen interest in facial aesthetics, providing Botox for a wide range of treatments including wrinkle reduction, TMJ pain, excessive sweating and gummy smile.

Peyman Pakyari

I have worked as a solo General Dental Practitioner at my own practice, Wokingham Smiles, for several years. In 2019 I was very pleased to be able to move with my patients to join the large team at Beechcroft. I provide a wide range of restorative treatments and in particular I specialise in the provision of Botox treatments.

Your hygienists

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.

Charlotte Lucas

After qualifying from the University of Sheffield in 2008, I joined the Beechcroft team in 2013. I have a caring attitude towards patients to whom I strive to give my utmost in relation to treatment and standard of care. I enjoy working as part of a team and building a rapport with our loyal patients. In my spare time I enjoy days out and adventures with my young family.

Jen Boardman

I qualified in Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy in 2010 at The Eastman Dental Hospital in London. Since then, I have worked in both London and Switzerland always focusing on the highest level of care I can provide my patients. I've been very lucky to work in innovative and interesting practices across the two countries which has enriched my skillset and experience greatly. I joined Beechcroft at the beginning of 2019 when returning to live in the UK and have really enjoyed my work here so far, it's a great team who all deliver high quality dentistry which I feel very proud to be a part of. We are also lucky to have extremely loyal patients who are a pleasure to treat.

Katherine Redmond

I am dual qualified as both a dental therapist and hygienist and joined the expanding hygiene team at Beechcroft in January 2020. Mum to two girls and a Cairn terrier, I love getting to know people as well as all things teeth, making me a very friendly and enthusiastic dental professional. My aim is to provide gentle but thorough treatment, listening to what my patients want, to discover what works best for them as we strive to achieve their hygiene goals.

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