Meet the Dentists

BChD (Leeds)
GDC 80216

I graduated from Leeds University in 2001. Having worked initially in Mirfield and Keighley, I bought Ilkley Dental Care Limited, along with Owen Higgs in 2006. I believe in providing the highest standards in all aspects of dentistry, treating people how I would like to be treated myself. I take particular pride in making a real difference to patients, helping them to achieve a healthy smile they can be proud of.

Outside the practice, when not taking my children to piano, brownies, swimming, football and class parties, I cling on to my youth by running, cycling and playing football!

I graduated from Guy's Dental Hospital in 2001 and ended up in lovely Yorkshire to follow my wife who is a Yorkshire lass.

I started work in general practice in Keighley and in 2006 moved over to Ilkley Dental Care Limited with Philip Moore.

The challenge of working in practice has been an enjoyable one and it has given me a range of skills that allows me to consider every patient and to treat them according to their specific needs.

Dentistry is not a one size fits all job. Looking at each patient and successfully completing their treatment, whether it is a check-up, small filling or a large cosmetic case, is a real pleasure.

I consider that successful dental treatment depends entirely on the trust that must exist between the patient and he dentist and building that relationship is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

In my spare time, which is not much as I have 3 daughters, I like rugby and skiing and am an awful but enthusiastic golfer.

Peter Robbins: Implant Dentist
BChD (Leeds)
MFDS RCS (Edinburgh)
GDC 192526

Originally from Warwickshire, I graduated from Leeds University in 2010. I previously worked in Pontefract and undertook an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery post at Bradford Royal Infirmary. I also work in general practice in Leeds during the week.

I passed the necessary examinations to be elected onto the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
With a keen interest in all aspects of restorative dentistry, I like to ensure my patients feel at ease throughout treatment. I am also a qualified Invisalign provider.

I am currently undertaking the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners Restorative Dentistry course, leading to the Diploma or MSc. This teaches and assesses how to plan and carryout further complex treatment planning and treatments.

Away from dentistry, I'm an avid follower of rugby union, most recently playing at Ilkley RFC, and am a huge Leicester Tigers supporter. I also keep myself fit at gym training.

I graduated from Newcastle University in 2014 and undertook the postgraduate Diploma the following year at Glasgow. I’m originally from Yorkshire and previously worked in practices in West Yorkshire and gained experience in the Oral Surgery department at the BRI.

With a passion for patient care, I have undertaken further training to enable provision of clear braces and facial aesthetics.

In my spare time I enjoy walking with my black lab over our beautiful county.

BDS (Manchester)
GDC 150079

I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2008. Following my vocational training I spent a year as a Maxillofacial Senior House Office at Bradford Teaching Hospital gaining experience in managing trauma and oral surgery. I now split my time between general practice and lecturing at Leeds Dental Institute in the Restorative department, which is an absolute joy and hold the position of Module lead.

I pride myself in offering tailored dental treatment to my patients and believe in providing excellent dental care to all that come to see me. I have embarked on several further qualifications in the restorative field to better the treatment options I can offer and am eager to continue to develop as new technologies and procedures become available.

Outside of dentistry I love to go for long walking weekends, of which Yorkshire provides a stunning backdrop and spend the rest of my time socialising with family and friends.
