Carolyn Copping BDS Dentist


Qualified BDS Birmingham, UK 1988 GDC 63811


Carolyn is our dedicated dentist and owner of the practice.  She has worked in the area for 30 years, and now sees the children and grandchildren of the patients that joined the practice originally.

She has a particular interest in Periodontics and minimal intervention dentistry, meaning that wherever possible she will seek to preserve and maintain tooth structure, before picking up a handpiece to cut into teeth.  At every check up, she will be looking carefully for signs of change in the health of your gums, since early detection of small changes mean the patient can take control of their own disease, and prevent it worsening.

Danielle Bird – Dental Therapist


Dip Dent Hygiene and therapy – Dental Therapist GDC 170691

Danielle qualified in 2011 and if you have just simple fillings or a hygiene treatment, she will be able to do both for you. A therapist combines the role of a hygienist with the more straightforward work of a dentist, and this means that many of our patients will save time by booking a double appointment with her rather than have to coordinate two separate ones with a dentist and hygienist.
