Meet the Team
M. Asjad Tai – B.D.S. (U. Manc) – Principal Dentist
I am the principal dentist here at Anchor Road Dental Practice. I qualified from Manchester University in 1999 and have worked in Aldridge for 9 years.
Between family life and work I try to squeeze in as much golf as i can. My handicap of 18 tells me that I should should spend more time improving my golfing skills.
I like to use my geeky computer and technology knowledge to create and design websites.
Jagprit Hear – B.D.S. (Kings College London) – Principal Dentist
Since qualifying from Kings College in 2001 I have attended many postgraduate courses instilling in me the confidence and knowledge so that patients receive the foremost treatment, whether it be a simple tooth coloured filling or the most demanding full mouth cosmetic rehabilitation.
I was one of the first people in England to attend the new revolutionary Fastbraces course which allows teeth to be straightened in only 3 to 10 months!
My ambition to stay at the cutting edge of dentistry has led me to complete a year long implant course in Manchester which lead on to a sinus/ bone grafting course at the Royal College of Surgeons in London .
I enjoy socialising with family/friends and can’t believe how quick my children grow!
Apart from my children I have two passions in life, Liverpool fc and cars. One leads me to despair and the other one will probably lead me to financial ruin.
John. R. Beards – B.D.S. (U. Birm) – Senior Dentist
I have been qualified for 40 years and have been working in Aldridge for 36 years and am pleased to report that I still enjoy my professional life. I have been married for 35 years and have two grown up sons. My interests include sport, travel, reading and motoring.
Julia Poxon – L.D.S. R.C.S. (U. Birm) – Senior Dentist
I have been a practising dentist for 30 years, some 15 of them in Aldridge. I aim to reassure even the most nervous patients and put them at ease.
Hari Hunjan – BDS (Lond) MFGDP (UK) DPDS (Specialist in Oral Surgery) DipImpDent RCS (Advanced Bone Grafting) – Specialist Oral Surgeon
I specialise in wisdom tooth removal and dental implants. I have attended numerous implant courses as part of my ongoing training. I teach both undergraduates and postgraduates in dental implantology and surgical dentistry and I am an associate specialist in oral surgery at Birmingham Dental Hospital.
Clare Terry – Dentist Hygienist
After qualifying as a Dental Hygienist from Guys Hospital, London in 1986 I moved back to the West Midlands and have worked in the area ever since. I came to work in Aldridge about 12 months ago on a part time basis. I am married and have 2 children and 2 cats. I enjoy walking in Sutton Park and holidays in the sun.
Rebecca Skett – Practice Manager
I began working in Aldridge at the practice in 2008. Since then I have gained knowledge and experience and I have now taken the role of Practice Manager.
I am the first point of contact for patients and staff if there are any concerns or queries. Out of work hours I enjoy keeping fit and socialising with my friends and family.
