About the Practice

Steve Calver qualified from Sheffield Dental School in 1982. He held various associate posts around Nottingham and Derbyshire, developing his skills in all areas of general dentistry, before experiencing that "Eureka" moment, listening to an American dentist, Ken James, talking about preventive dentistry.

Lady Bay Dental Care was set up in 1991 with the aim of breaking away from the "drill & fill" mould of the time, and to offer an alternative style of dentistry based on preventing disease. Indeed as long ago as 1994 we won the "Prevention in Practice Award", presented by Oral B in conjunction with a prestigious national dental publication.

We now have a large patient base of 4000 patients, that can be looked after by just one dentist quite simply because most need no treatment on an on-going basis. They have learned how to maintain their own oral health to a high standard. Indeed many now come to the practice only once a year for a check-up and maintenance care.


The Surgery

Our purpose built facilities are among the finest in the region. Early in 2008 we won the top prize in our category of major UK town and city for practices with the "wow" factor, beating off stiff competition from many larger, equally prestigious practices.

The judges considered that our smart, new, purpose built practice, with carefully designed state of the art treatment rooms and sterilising facilities, coupled with our unique approach to patient care and dentistry, was a winning combination.


Practice Accessibility

The Practice is fully compliant and we have gone to great lengths to ensure the building and all services are accessible to as many patients as possible. However, if you have any concerns or special requirements that would make your visit easier, please mention this when making your appointment and we will be happy to help.


Safeguarding of Children and Vulnerable Adults

Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is a legal and ethical obligation of all healthcare personnel. Safeguarding is defined as "measures taken to minimise the risks of harm".

Our staff are all appropriately trained and all of our staff have current DBS checks.

Dental healthcare personnel are expected to recognise the signs of abuse in children and vulnerable adults and take appropriate action including records and reporting. Members of the team are not responsible for diagnosing abuse, but for sharing concerns appropriately.

Every team member is responsible for the protection of children and vulnerable adults. Healthcare personnel are in a position to recognise possible signs of abuse and neglect or to hear something that causes concerns. The GDC guidance called Standards for the Dental Team states "Take appropriate action if you have concerns about the possible abuse of children or vulnerable adults". The GMC and NMC also have safeguarding requirements.
