James Mein B.D.S.

G.D.C. Reg No. 82019

I qualified from Birmingham Dental School in 2003 and worked in Studley, Sheldon and Redditch before buying St Peter’s Dental Practice with Susan in 2007. Since I qualified I have continued to develop my dental skills, including further training in advanced restorative dentistry. I aim to provide high quality dental care that gives my patients what they want, not just what I think they need.
Outside of Dentistry I am a father of 2, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for hobbies. I enjoy skiing, wakeboarding and watching films.

G.D.C. Reg No. 78087

I qualified from Birmingham Dental School in 2000 and have worked in Lichfield and Oswestry before buying St Peter’s Dental Practice with James in 2007. I have continued to develop my clinical skills including further training in aesthetic dentistry. I always aim to make my patients feel at ease when they are in the surgery. My mum suffered greatly with dental phobia so I have seen what it can be like when you are very scared of every visit. I hope that I can help to take some of that fear away.
Outside of dentistry I enjoy gardening and am trying to “grow my own”. I can often be found walking with my dog in the Worcestershire countryside.

G.D.C. Reg No. 152696

Lee is the newest member of our clinical team, he can work with you to provide beautiful natural looking dentures.
I qualified in 1998 as a Dental Technician and have worked in Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton and Birmingham. I started my own dental laboratory in 2005, dedicated to embracing quality over quantity and producing beautiful work.
Treating my patients and hand crafting their new smile is very rewarding. My role includes not only the clinical procedures but also all of the technical aspects in creating beautiful bespoke dentures. Developing my clinical skills has allowed me to reflect upon patient care and develop a holistic approach which enhances the final result.
Outside of Dentistry I am a father and enjoy music, art and the outdoors.

Roxy qualified as a dentist from Manchester Dental School in 2001 before going on to complete her membership of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons in 2004. She has further training in Oral surgery and Implantology as well as being able to provide dental treatment under sedation. She has also received training to provide non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Whilst doing all this she has also found time to complete a Medical Degree and is now training part time to become a GP

“I enjoy the long lasting relationships I build with patients which also feeds into my work as a GP. I see my relationship with every patient as a partnership in getting to the heart of what is the right solution for that particular person. It’s different for everyone and that’s what makes the work so challenging and enjoyable”

“Outside of Dentistry I enjoy spending time with my family as well as doing yoga, reading medical journals and writing poetry”
