Ian and Steve
Stephen Archer and Ian Cumberland met while training as apprentices in 1985. They served their apprenticeships in a laboratory based in a practice with 3 surgeries.
It was here, as part of the dental team they learnt to set up and trim dentures properly, working alongside the dentists themselves. This ensured that they both developed a clear and effective communication with their clients.
Bev Burkill trained as a dental nurse and qualified as a national dental surgery assistant in 1987. After a career break Bev decided to go back to college and train as a technician. Bev earned the Student Of The Year award in 2006, during her final year training.
