BDS (Bham) 1981
GDC No. 55942
I am friendly and approachable, providing high quality dentistry in a calm and relaxed environment. After qualifying from Birmingham Dental Hospital I was fortunate to be able continue my training at Derby Royal Infirmary in the Oral and Maxillo Facial Department as their Senior House Officer and then at The Royal Dental Hospital in London as a Registrar in the Paediatric department.
In 1984 I moved to Nottingham to work in General Dental Practice. In 1990 together with my husband Paul we came to Peveril Road Dental Specialists.
I enjoy all fields of dentistry but I find it especially rewarding to help patients overcome their worries. I focus on preventative care, working together with patients to transform and maintain a healthy smile.
I like to keep up to date through attending regular courses to keep abreast of new materials and techniques.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time in my garden and walking with my family, especially in the beautiful Peak District.
BDS (Lond) 1974
GDC no. 48103
After qualifying from King's College London in 1974 I took a residency there in Oral Surgery for 6 months, quickly realising this was not my calling. I then went to the Children's Department at the Eastman Dental Hospital for a year until moving to Nottingham. The treatment of children and nervous adults are a part of general practice I still enjoy.
I firstly worked in the Community Service in Nottingham, then in general practice in Arnold and then Queens Road, Beeston.
1990 saw the arrival of my second son and complicated logistics so I opened a surgery at home, described as 'Hairdressing with teeth' and I think enjoyed by all. The family dog included.
The advent of the Care Quality Commission lead to me being taken in by Kaye and Paul Rudin at Peveril Road where I've been very happy. I only hope others agree.
BDS (Birm) 1989
GDC no. 64932
I qualified from Birmingham Dental Hospital in 1989 and have gained broad experience in most aspects of dental care over my 30 years in practice. I have a special interest in the cosmetic restoration of failing teeth and replacement of lost or non-repairable damaged teeth using dental implants and beautifully prepared crown work and have undertaken considerable postgraduate training in both these areas. I am active member of the Association of Dental Implantology.
I have run my own practice in Stafford for the last 22 years but have now handed this over to a new owner. I'm looking forward to working alongside the great team at Peveril Road and offering high quality, caring dentistry which is really focused on properly maintaining healthy teeth and gums for life. One of the biggest boosts I get as a dentist is restoring a patient's confidence and happiness totally painlessly. Dental care need not be something to dread with the range of materials and techniques we have today.
Outside of dentistry my wife , Elaine, and I have two sons who are both at University. I'm very involved with Rowing at Trentham Boat Club in the Potteries and compete at events both locally and nationally. I'm also a keen scuba diver, Hill walker and amateur car restorer - ( sadly Minis not Astons !)

Verified experience in Dental Nursing
Hello my name is Margo. I joined Peveril Road Dental Specialist in May 1992.
I started my career as a dental nurse in 1976. My first practice where l worked was alongside Melanie, who you all know is now one of our receptionist at Peveril Road. Our career paths, still within dentistry took slightly different routes for a few years. Whilst l was on maternity leave in 1992 Melanie put my name forward to come and help out at Peveril Road – 28 years later l am still here, helping out.
I work part time and have the responsibility for ordering all the stock within the practice.
As a dental nurse we have to keep up with training (CPD) attending day or online courses. All these hours have to be submitted yearly to the General Dental Council.
Over the time l have met lots of lovely patients, l enjoy finding out what they’ve been up to since their last visit, hopefully putting them at ease with any concerns they may have.
Outside work l enjoy being with my family, meeting up with friends to have a good chat. Walking, Lake District is my favorite place. Love my holidays especially cruising.
The whole team at Peveril are one big happy family.

Receptionist & Dental Nurse
Qual- National Certificate NEBDN 2005
GDC no. 139583
My name is Sara Rowland after leaving full time education I started a career in banking with Barclays Bank. I later got married and had two children and took a career break. When I returned to work I decided a part time position near to home would be preferable so I applied for a position at Peveril Road. I have been an employee at The Peveril Road Dental Practice since November 1996. I was originally employed as a receptionist but after a few months I was asked to train as a dental nurse. I gained my National Diploma in Dental Nursing qualification in 2005. My GDC registration number is 139583.
Over the years I have met and got to know so many lovely patients that have been extremely loyal to the practice it is a standing joke that Melanie and myself can recognise most of our longstanding patients over the phone by their voice without the patients having to disclose their names. The practice has become a very successful referral clinic specialising in dental implants and root canal therapy. The patients that are referred to us are often unsure and nervous so I try to make them feel at ease and help them to understand what their treatment entails.
I have three horses which are kept at home so whenever I get the opportunity to ride I do. I enjoy training for dressage competitions, spending time with my family, walking the dog and helping take care of my two little grandchildren. My favourite type of vacation is to take road trips around Europe.
