Excellent care requires excellent people

Every person in our Practice is essential to your care so we endeavour to recruit, train and retain the best people. Everyone who joins us understands our expectations and receives regular training and personal development to ensure we all share the same ethos of putting our patients at the heart of everything we do.

By providing a caring environment for everyone, we engender loyalty. As the saying goes – we don’t expect loyalty, we earn it. Our practice is part of Rodericks Dental, a company with over 70 practices across the country. We are different because our company is run by dentists – for patients.

Suneet Hayer | Dentist

BDS Birm 2008 GDC No. 150161

My name is Suneet Hayer, I qualified in Birmingham in 2008. I have been working within Rodericks Ltd since 2011 in various practices including Rugby and Burbage. I have an interest in cosmetic dentistry and hope to pursue this in the future so that I am able to give patients the smile they want if they do not already have it. I have enjoyed working at Rugby as I think the team are great and fun to work with. When I’m not practicing dentistry I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies and shopping.
