Meet the team

Jackie and John Doran
Practice Owners

Jackie and John have owned the practice on Chester Road for fourteen years and Ryhope for nine years. They have brought the whole business and both buildings flying into the 21st Century! With the support of their amazing team, they have brought state-of-the-art technology and systems to both practices and have built a strong, loyal patient base.

We have a whole host of clinicians, both dentists and therapists, between the two practices who are Jackie, Roshan, Cara, Eva, Tanya, Josh, Helen, Kelly, Danielle and Laura.

Practice Manager

Melanie has been our Practice Manager for thirteen years now and keeps everything running smoothly across both practices, based mainly at Chester Road. We'd all be lost without her!

Practice Supervisor

Rebecca is our Practice Supervisor, mainly based at Ryhope and is a fantastic support to the whole team.
Melanie and Courtney
Patient Coordinator

Melanie and Courtney are our Patient Coordinators who works especially with our private patients, more anxious patients and for treatment planning. There commitment to the business is something we couldn't possibly do without!
Reception Team

The smiling faces of Breeze Dental! Your frontline when you call us or call in, run by Hannah, Rachel and Hollie at Chester Road, and Elaine, Melissa and Abbey at Ryhope. They are all happy to help!

Dental Care Assistants

We have the best team now than we have had in all the ten years of Breeze Dental! All of our girls are loyal and committed to the practice and our patients. From nursing, to central sterilisation or administrative work, they are flexible and well trained in every role! While you're in the practice, you can approach any member of our team for assistance - they are all happy to help!

Cleaning Team

We have a cleaning team, Gail at Chester Road and Dawn at Ryhope, both from Ladies Maids, who work when the practice is closed to keep the place spick and span ready for action the next morning!


And last but not least, we wouldn't be anywhere without our team of experts for renovations and repairs, John and our very own Ken Giles. Thanks boys, we are forever in your debt!

All our clinical staff are fully qualified and registered with the General Dental Council (GDC).
