About Us

Our Dental Team

Our nursing team plays a crucial role in our preventative strategy through offering oral hygiene instruction, advice and techniques. For many appointments they are the first point of treatment for patients as they carry out preparation such as disclosing before examination by the dentist. Where the patient is attending an emergency appointment, it is a member of our nursing team who will first speak to the patient about the nature of their problem.

Every member of our nursing team has a good understanding of the surgery as a whole, which is gained by rotating roles within the practice. Our staff undertake a wide range of duties including reception; ensuring patients are educated about oral health and working as chair side support to the dentist.

Ombersley Family Dental Practice is co-run by Andy’s husband Roy who manages the surgery, does the accounts, and uses his experience in software development and quality assurance to ensure the smooth running of the business’ systems. He organises patient direct debit schemes and provides additional support to the team on reception where needed. Roy ensures the smooth running of Ombersley and has been key in building our reputation for customer satisfaction beyond the dentist’s chair.

Our Dental Practice

We have recently benefitted from extensive modernisation to ensure the comfort and best function of our surgery, which includes a fully accessible W.C and a large customer car park. Our refit ensures that we can continue to provide the best in dental services, whenever you need a dentist in Ombersley near Worcester, Stourport on Severn or Droitwich.

Meet The Team

Andy Wright

Dentist

I qualified from Edinburgh University Dental School in 1982. After completing a house officer position at Birmingham Dental School, I spent a year as the resident Senior House Officer in Oral Surgery at Worcester Royal Infirmary. Over the next 12 years I worked in dental practices at Catshill and Cadburys and also as a part time oral surgery clinical assistant at Worcester Royal Infirmary. In 1996 I set up Ombersley Family Dental Practice. I married Roy in 1986 and have a stepson, Stuart, a son, Marc and daughter, Sam. Outside work I play competitive squash, golf and enjoy swimming, gardening, walking and supporting Roy at historic car race meetings. I am currently studying for a diploma in clinical hypnosis to aid our more nervous patients.

Roy Wright

Practice Manager

After a career developing computer systems, initially with Royal Worcester Porcelain and then with software development companies I set up my own consultancy. I pursued this for a number of years providing quality assurance management for several computer software companies and computer departments of large organisations, until it became obvious that Andy needed someone to handle the growing administrative effort required in running the Practice. It was pleasing to see how the disciplines that were used in satisfying business needs could be transferred into a dental practice environment. I played squash for many years but shoulder operations have ended that outlet, fortunately I am still able to continue historic single-seater car racing.
