Our Vision

Alpha Dental Group: First Class in NHS Dentistry

Alpha epitomises what a forward thinking NHS practice strives for. We are committed to providing a first class NHS dentistry service for our patients as well as a supportive, engaging and challenging environment for our people to achieve their goals.

Our Core Values

We have three underpinning values at Alpha Dental Studio that we believe contribute to our success. These attributes are not only the essence of our brand, but are rooted in each and every member of the Alpha Dental Group.


We pride ourselves on our teamwork, each practice team works seamlessly as a practice and as a group, each member working effectively together to the benefit of our patients.


It’s our passion to provide the very highest standards for our patients. We expect our people to be professional, work hard and project at all times the positive ethos of Alpha Dental Studio


Alpha Dental Studio promises to provide a very special working environment for our team supporting career development with the benefit of a vibrant social programme; we enjoy celebrating success. We aim to provide a positive dental experience for our patients.

Who we are

Alpha Dental Studio is a very well established team that has worked together for many years – this is one of our biggest strengths – teamwork is one of the core values of the Alpha Dental group alongside professionalism and fun.

All partners graduated from Newcastle University and all are from the North East and Yorkshire regions.

Together we form a strong team who work hard to ensure the practice you visit offers a high standard of care.

We are all committed to our own development and education and to that of the dentists and support staff who work with us.

Alpha Dental Studio holds regular team meetings and training days and pulls in the expertise of other colleagues to offer advanced treatment such as Orthodontics and Dental Implants.

We aim to make you feel welcome as a patient – we rely on your support and welcome feedback and comments as to how we can improve the service we offer. Patient feedback questionnaires are available on reception.

History of the Group

Alpha Dental Group is a thriving group of eleven established practices with five partners.

In October 2008, Dr Ian Gordon and Dr David Birkin took over a practice in Catterick Garrison and launched the first Alpha Dental Studio.

Other acquisitions and new sites followed rapidly with additional partners Ben Wild, Guy Wells and Neeraj Diddee joining the Group.

2009 was a busy year with new sites in Great Ayton, Leyburn, Hawes and Bedale opening in April and Northallerton in May.

2010 started in a similar way with a new practice in Thirsk in January and Fairfield, Stockton on Tees in February.

2011 saw the acquisition of an established Practice in Kirkbymoorside.

The group won an orthodontic contract in 2012 in partnership with windmill orthodontics.

All the partners of the business are qualified Dentists and work clinically in the group as well as providing managerial leadership and support for our Head Office team based in Stokesley.

The partners are good friends as well as business colleagues and have a track record of working together and building successful practices and teams.

Ian Gordon and Ben Wild were partners in The Dental Centre Group on Teesside with David Birkin, Guy Wells and Neeraj Diddee all working within the group from very early in their careers.

Association of Dental Groups  www.dentalgroups.co.uk

Alpha Dental Studio are members of the association of dental groups (ADG) who provide patients with high quality, consistent care and treatment. Members are all UK companies with more than ten practices.The scale of members’ practices mean that patients can be confident that the service they experience in one practice in Middlesbrough for example will be the same as that in London for example.

Dentists across member companies are highly qualified and undergo frequent training programmes to ensure they are skilled in the latest treatment solutions and the most up to date technology. Providing reassurance through professionalism and concern for patients is at the heart of ADG members’ approach to dentistry.

Members are continually guided by the feedback of patients and work to provide the best possible patient experience.
