Meet the Team

Philip Moore

Dentist BChD (Leeds) GDC 80216

ABOUT PHILIP

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 and Belle Vue Dental Practice in 2018.

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.

Owen Higgs

Dentist BDS (Lond) GDC 80235

ABOUT OWEN

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.

Martin Page

Dental Technician Dip Clin Dent Tech RCS Eng GDC No. 154581

ABOUT MARTIN

Martin is one of only a handful of Clinical Dental Technicians in the Yorkshire region registered with the General Dental Council [GDC] as a Qualified Dental Technician [CDT].

It has been his goal over the years to keep up to date with the latest techniques, which led to him attending courses in Switzerland, Germany, Canada and a variety of venues across the UK.

It was a natural progression to qualify: firstly with the George Brown College Toronto and then with the Royal College of Surgeons London. This enables him to deal directly with patients and means that he has total control of all aspects of denture construction.

Upon setting up Ilkley Denture Clinic, he decided that he would only operate within an existing dental practice, and he is here onsite at the practice. This gives our patients a unique service in Ilkley as Martin can see patients who require dentures right from the consultation appointment through to the finished product, ensuring a fast and efficient service with excellent consistent care.
