Meet the Team

David Wright


Hi, I’m the very proud owner of Hebden Bridge Dental Care Ltd. I qualified from University College London in 1991 with a Bachelors degree in dental surgery, having initially gained my licence from The Royal College of Surgeons of England. I started working here in Hebden Bridge as an associate with Andrew Wilson and Richard Denny over 30 years ago and I’m still here! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing generations of my patients grow older with me and watch their children grow up too.

It was always my life’s ambition to be a dentist and I am just as enthusiastic about dentistry now, as when I first started. I feel very privileged and honoured to care for our community and at the same time fulfil my passion for dentistry.

I’m most proud of my exceptional team of dental professionals and what we have achieved over the years. Building an amazing team does not happen by accident and our strength lies in our friendship and respect for one another. Most of my dedicated team have been together for years and their professionalism and ability to help and support their colleagues creates a strong bond and trust. This, as well as possessing their unique skills and knowledge ensures we deliver excellent dental care every time and provide it in a friendly, caring and passionate way too.

Dr Bryn Hans

BChD University of Leeds 2001


Hi I’m Bryn, I qualified from Leeds Dental school in 2001 and Have been working as a general dentist in West Yorkshire ever since.  I have lived in Hebden Bridge most of that time and joined the practice in 2017. I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry especially endodontics (root fillings).

Outside of dentistry I play hockey for Halifax, during the winter months and I like getting out for walks and bird watching as long as it’s not too wet! I also play drums and bass guitar in a couple of bands around Hebden Bridge.

Dr Jo Beaumont


Special Interest in Periodontics

Hi I’m Jo, I graduated from Newcastle university in 2012 and have worked extensively within the hospital setting in oral and maxillofacial surgery and restorative dentistry as well as general dental practice.

I obtained my membership of the faculty of dental surgery with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in medical education from Edge Hill University, which I use to teach and assess dental students at the Leeds Dental Institute.

I’m about to complete my Postgraduate Diploma and MSc. in clinical periodontology at the University of Central Lancashire later this year. My main focus is the treatment of periodontitis and patient education and motivation in order to achieve long lasting periodontal (gum) stability. I’m interested in non-surgical periodontal therapy and periodontal surgery and the use of evidence-based regenerative techniques in order to achieve optimal results such as the management of recession and gingival overgrowth including crown lengthening techniques to improve aesthetics.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my young family, travelling and doing triathlons.

Dr Nadeem Sabir

BDS (hons) MFDS RCS Ed


Hi, I’m Nadeem, I qualified from the University of Manchester in 2013 and was one of the few dentists to graduate with Honours. I returned to Yorkshire to complete my vocational training before spending several years in various hospitals to gain extensive surgical experience. I continue to work as a Speciality Doctor in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

In 2014, I attained the prestigious MFDS qualification from The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. My commitment to the profession is shown by the numerous national and international courses I have attended throughout the UK, Europe and USA in order to further my knowledge and learn the latest dental and surgical techniques.

Today, I limit my practice to surgical dentistry and implants and I also have a keen interest in treating anxious patients using intravenous sedation techniques where necessary.

I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I like to combines my true professionalism with genuine warmth and care, ensuring even the most anxious patients are made to feel relaxed and reassured. I’m very approachable and highly empathetic but my main driving force is the pleasure I get from seeing the results of my treatments and how they transform and restore confidence in my patients’ lives.
