Meet The Team

We could tell you that DB Dental Equipment Ltd. is an independent family-run company that specialises in the sales, maintenance and installation of all dental equipment for practices throughout the UK. We could also tell you that we’ve had specialist training in decontamination testing and validation services, in line with HTM0105, and all our engineers are manufacturer-accredited to install and maintain dental equipment.

We know these things matter, but what we most want to tell you is that our team is made up of great people – people who will go the extra mile for others, who treat others how they want to be treated, and who approach every job – no matter how big or small - with the same care and attention to detail. These are people who get things done, and done well. These people are DB Dental.

David Bennett MD

“I first began working in the dental trade when I was 21, being employed as a trainee service engineer for Baxters in Bradford.

In 1995 and in my mid-thirties with four young children, a distinct lack of money and a determination to prove myself, I branched out on my own and formed DB Dental Equipment Ltd. I have always been driven to provide my customers with the best level of customer service possible and I have been supported in this over the years by a very loyal team of staff.”

“I am proud to say that those staff now include my four children and that DB Dental today is a successful and respected family business providing a very personal and tailored service to a vast range of discerning clients in many spheres of dentistry. Our clients are typically honest people who require an honest service. We supply them with quality installations of equipment and cabinetry. We carry out complete refurbishments and we aim to keep you working by providing unrivalled service support.”

“I have worked in the dental industry for 40 (gulp) years and worked for DB Dental for 17. As the service manager, I have nine engineers to organise every day, allocating their jobs, issuing parts that need to be fitted and briefing them on any surgery issues. I also deal with technical problems that can be solved over the phone to save customers a call out. Quite often I go out visiting practices, offering advice about a possible new surgery. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, eating out and spending time with my family.”


“I joined DB Dental in 2001 and spent the first eight years as a service and installation engineer. After this, I progressed to be part of the sales team. With a good understanding of how a surgery works day-to-day and my knowledge of equipment, from repairing and maintaining it for so long, I am able to offer great advice on how to create an ideal surgery. My role involves site visits, preparing plans and quotations, order processing and taking my clients through the entire process from the initial designs to the handover and aftersales care.”

“When I am in the office, I’m always on hand to offer any technical advice required over the phone and I still carry my tool case so if our engineers are fully booked, I can help ease the pressure. I enjoy the variety involved with my job and working closely with our customers to ensure the end result exceeds their expectations.”

I joined DB Dental in 2017 as Territory Manager in the South of UK. I started in the Dental trade in 1996 and over the past 21 Years gained an extensive knowledge of the industry and in particular what I believe is needed to help my clients achieve what they set out to do, listening, asking, discussing and understanding. I have a passion for the business of dentistry and will often end up discussing many different aspects of my clients practice where I think I can add value. No question is too hard and no idea is to bizarre when it comes to creating the perfect solution for a practice so I look forward to chatting with you soon.

When away from work I can be found on the Tennis court or ferrying one of my 3 children around, that’s all before my 2 dogs start barking for attention or my wonderful and understanding wife has a household maintenance job for me to try my hand at.

“I have worked at DB Dental since 2005 and my main responsibility is surgery installations. When I’m not installing new equipment, I cover the service side of the business. I am also fully trained to install and set up digital imaging systems such as the Yoshida 3D upgradeable OPG. My experience in a variety of areas makes me well equipped to deal any technical difficulties or faults on your dental equipment. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my children and playing football.”


“I’ve worked at DB for six years now and enjoy the fact that no two days are the same. I’m qualified in all aspects of dental equipment and specialise in validation, pressure vessel inspection and decontamination equipment. If your autocalve or washer is causing you a headache, I’ll be the one to investigate the source of the fault and rectify it quickly with the minimum amount of downtime.

Outside of work I look forward to holidays and the occasional night out.”


“Since joining DB Dental in 2009 I have concentrated on all aspects of dental engineering and I am currently completing an electrical installation course at college. Outside of work I enjoy going to the gym, playing golf, eating good food, spending time with my other half, the great outdoors and going out!”


“I spend most of my time working on new equipment installations and laying surgery flooring. I am also studying for various electrical qualifications and have completed numerous courses with DB Dental since joining in 2010, including electrical, Polyflor and A-dec installation training. I travel up and down country with equipment so the chances are, whether we are installing in Cornwall or Scotland, I’ll be there.

When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time with my two boys. Needless to say after all this, I enjoy the occasional night out.”


“I am one of a team of nine engineers and my area is the South East corner of England. I have been working on dental equipment for the past 17 years. My knowledge ranges from the dental compressor tucked away in the darkest region of your cellar to the turbine in your hand and all the pieces of equipment in between that enable you to carry out your tasks on a daily basis. Most of my days are spent on service but I am also happy and able to offer advice and designs on new surgeries and decontamination rooms.

When I’m not working on dental equipment, my interests are motor Sport and Classic Cars, both as a spectator and competitor.”


“I joined DB Dental in 2009 after graduating from Leeds University. I have a variety of roles, which makes my job very interesting and often a good challenge. My primary concern is tailoring service contracts for our customers and the NHS to ensure that all the equipment is maintained, tested and validated in line with HTM0105 regulations. We all know this can be a bit of a minefield and my job is to make things easier for practice managers who are usually juggling many responsibilities so appreciate having one less thing to do. I also deal with the accounts, HR, marketing, website, sales, customer service, social media, so my days are quite busy - just the way I like it.”

“Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my hubby and our three children Max, Noah and Ava, as well as walking, the odd cocktail and nice restaurants.”

“I’m often the first ‘port of call’ for customers ringing DB Dental. I have been here for 15 years and before that I worked with our staff at other dental companies. Somehow I have clocked up 34 years in the dental industry - and am still only a young spring chicken! I will try my best to solve your problems in the first call; if you require an engineer, we will prioritise your urgency and arrange visits to suit, help you with spare parts orders, and fulfil them ASAP. I always try to keep the customer informed at every stage as there is nothing worse than been kept in the dark. Between us, we have a vast amount of dental engineering experience and we are proud of this, nothing is too much of a challenge.”

“When I’m not working, I enjoy a little ‘retail therapy’ to say the least and enjoy watching my family play football, hockey and golf.”

“I am one of the admin team here at DB Dental. I am generally one of the first points of contact for our customers and try to help with any queries they may have. I manage the autoclave and compressor contracts, which includes ensuring PVIs, PATs Testing and Validations are booked in on time and that customers receive all the relevant certification following the engineer’s visit. I also help with ordering of spare parts and with any invoicing queries.”

“When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family. I also go to the gym and the take the dogs for walks - but I would hardly say I enjoy this!”

“I am the ‘bean counter’ or accountant at DB Dental. I joined the company in February 2010 after working in practice for 20 years and I haven’t looked back. My duties include purchase/sales ledger, bank transactions, payroll, VATand monthly management accounts. Unfortunately, I am the one that chases late payments too…but in the nicest possible way.

When I’m not working I enjoy having quality time with my family and walking when the weather permits.”
