About the employer

Our dental practice has been at its current location for over 80 years so is well established within Guiseley and the wider community. The practice was established in Guiseley by Mr Iles back in the late 1920s. His son Tony carried on the family tradition until Simon Bickerton started working at the practice in 1986. The Practice has grown and expanded over the years and now has 3 modern, well equipped surgeries together with a dedicated x-ray and instrument sterilising room. Simon and Sally Bickerton have managed the practice for over 30 years, working with a dedicated team of dentists, hygienists, nursing and reception staff. We now have 5 dentists and a hygienist working in the practice, supported by a fully qualified team of dental care professionals. We are currently working towards a BDA Good Practice Award.
