The team at Reepham Dental Centre is small, loyal and established. Our staff love the work they do and it shows.
PRINCIPAL DENTIST Richard Brocklesby BDS (Sheffield,1985),DGDP(UK). GDC No. 60936.
I qualified in 1985 from the University of Sheffield School of Clinical Dentistry and worked in several practices in Norfolk before settling in Reepham in 1993. Between 1992 and 1995 I held a part time position as clinical assistant in orthodontics (correcting teeth irregularities) at West Norwich Hospital. I am passionate about continuing my education and in 1996 I achieved a diploma in general dental practice at the Royal College of Surgeons. I then gained a certificate in endodontics (root canal treatment) from the Eastman Dental Hospital in London in 2005 to further develop an interest in this area of dentistry.
I am happily married with three children and I enjoy walking, cycling, golf, table tennis and anything I do with my family.
HYGENIST Katalin Prentice, Dr Med Dent (Debrecen,Hungary 2011). GDC No 240242.
I studied and gained my qualifications as a dentist at the University of Dentistry Debrecen/ Hungary in 2011 and then in 2013 I moved to the United Kingdom for both the professional and cultural experience. I worked as a dentist in London, where I carried out a broad range of general dental treatments as well as dental hygiene. I also worked at a teeth whitening company during this 2 year period.
After I met my husband I relocated to Norwich and I joined the Reepham Dental Centre in 2016. I am truly honoured to be a part of such a great team and relish the opportunity to have a positive impact on each and every patient’s oral health.
I am a very active person. In my spare time I love cycling with my
husband and we often compete in off road Mountain Bike races. I am also extremely passionate about opera singing.
FRONT OF HOUSE MANAGER Emma Newman,GDC No. 115570.
I have worked at Reepham Dental Centre since 1994, firstly working as Richards’ dental nurse until 2008 before taking on my present role. I am now responsible for managing the day-to-day running of the practice as well as duties on reception. I gained my national certificate NEBDN in 1998. I enjoy walking my dog and horse riding in my spare time.
DENTAL NURSE Dawn Preen,GDC No 152045.
I qualified as a dental nurse in Brighton in 1987, where I grew up. I
have worked in several private dental practices over this time, gaining valuable experience. In 2010 I moved to Norwich with my family when my husband changed his job.
In my spare time I enjoy running and keeping fit. I am a keen gardener and enjoy spending time with my family. My daughter is a synchronised swimmer and I enjoy attending competitions with her and love watching her compete.
“I was touched by your kindness, sensitivity, and good humour. Please also pass on my thanks to your assistant who was wonderful. By the end of the visit I was no longer nervous and was enjoying it."
“Richard thank you for trying so very hard to save my tooth and for your kindness”
“Thank you all for your care and attention given to me and my husband over the past years”
“Colin and I were touched by your “can do” approach, your friendly nature, explanations and openness. Thank you for your empathy and willingness to address what felt like the “last straw” in a run of bad luck in life events recently. Many many thanks"
“My dental experience could not have been better and that is down to you and your excellent team. Kind regards"
“I was very impressed with the result of your hygienists’ work with the new ultrasonic descaler. It's a long time since my teeth have looked and felt so clean.”
