New team

The Team

Paul and Cheryl Brown would like to welcome you to the Aldeburgh and Framlingham Dental Practices and thank you for choosing us as your partner for oral and dental health care. Our philosophy is Total Dedication to Quality Dental Health Care. Paul qualified from Guys Hospital at the University of London in 1990. Highly commended by the BUPA quality assurance program, he joined Aldeburgh Dental Practice as principal in 1997. Cheryl qualified from The Eastman Dental Hospital London in 1998, where she joined Paul at the Aldeburgh Dental Practice working as Hygienist/ Practice manager.

In 2005 together they acquired the Framlingham Dental Practice. Both practices have developed considerably, expanding to multiple state of the art treatment and sterilisation rooms. The two practices work closely together and patients have the freedom to attend either site.

Both practices combine the very best of established techniques and procedures with the latest technological advances in equipment and materials. Our aim is to offer you all the benefits of modern pain free dentistry.

Christopher Kelly

I chose to settle in this stunning part of our country after six years living and working in Perth, Western Australia, where we had our two sons. My spare time is mostly spent entertaining my wonderful children and we are season ticket holders at Banham Zoo/Africa Alive & Easton Farm Park so spend many happy summer hours there. Prior to having children, I particularly loved attending music gigs and festivals, the highlights of which were watching Roger Waters and Nick Mason perform “The Dark Side of the Moon” (surely the best album that has or will ever be composed) in Hyde Park, London and Neil Diamond performing “Sweet Caroline” at Glastonbury festival. My personal heroes are Muhammad Ali, John F. Kennedy and David Bowie.
