Vishaal Bedi

Dentist with Special interest in Implant dentistry
BDS University of Liverpool 2013
GDC No. 244134

Vish was born and raised in Nottingham and, prior to dentistry, graduated in Medicine from the University of Birmingham in 2007.

After having his interest in oral and maxillofacial surgery sparked as a junior doctor he decided to study Dentistry, qualifying from the University of Liverpool in 2013.

Since then he has built up experience in all aspects of restorative dentistry, but with his penchant for surgery, his passion lies in placing and restoring dental implants to help replace missing teeth. He was first exposed to this field when observing these procedures as a trainee dentist. He spent two years dedicating himself to observing as many cases as he could, culminating in the completion of a year-long dental implant training course in 2017.

He is great with nervous patients and, if required, can provide intravenous sedation to make any dental procedure more comfortable.

With his medical background, he is a natural at providing facial aesthetic treatments. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his young family, has recently learned how to swing a golf club and most importantly he enjoys supporting two-time European Cup winners Nottingham Forest!

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.

Patricia Groves

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.

Irina Beleva

DDM, MSc Endodontology
GDC no. 249464

Dr Irina Beleva graduated from the Medical University of Plovdiv in 2011 (Bulgaria). She worked in her home country for 2 years and then decided to pursue her passion for Aesthetic dentistry and further education in this field. That was her reason to come to the UK and start her PGDip in Aesthetic and Restorative dentistry in Manchester. She worked for 3 years in Stoke-On-Trent as a restorative and aesthetic dentist, completing many Smile Design cases. There she discovered her interest in Endodontics and started a MSc program in Endodontology at Chester University, which she graduated with Merit in 2020. This now allows her to help patients with more complex root canal treatments.

Since 2015 she's become an Invisalign Full Provider, which gives her the opportunity to treat more difficult orthodontic cases, as well as short-term ones. Proof of her excellent endeavors are the MSc with Merit in Endodontology and "The Best Dentist" award from Tipton Training.

"Being able to give my patients the care they deserve and the smile they have always dreamed of is the greatest part of my job. It gives me fulfilment and passion for my work. Every case is unique. This is what makes the experience so wonderful. Both the Patient and I are driven by the same aim – the Best Outcome. Thank you for your trust!" Irina

Dental Nurse
Verified experience in Dental Nursing
GDC no.120658

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.

Sara Rowland

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.
