About us - The history of the practice

The practice is situated in a row of terraced houses that were built on the Aylsham Road in Norwich in 1899.

1930 Lloyd Edward Kent bought 150 Aylsham Road and the first dental practice was launched.

1936 Lloyd Kent died and the building was taken over briefly by another dentist by the name of Outan.

1937 Alex Davies bought 150 Aylsham Road and took over the practice

1954 Alex Davies bought 148 Aylsham Road and amalgamated the two buildings into an enlarged practice in 1955.

1973 Alex Davies retired and sold the practice to Barrie Lawrence who over time extended the practice at the back, added additional surgeries and an oral hygiene education room and ran it with four dentists and a hygienist until 1988.

1988 Barrie Lawrence sold the practice to Jim Peirson and carried on as an associate for two years until moving over to his second practice in Aylsham fulltime. For about fifteen years Jim Peirson ran the practice mostly as the only dentist with a hygienist and nurse team.

2005 The practice took on its first Vocational Trainee Dentist

2007 152 Aylsham Road was purchased

2010 146 Aylsham Road was purchased

2011 146-152 amalgamated into one large premises with improved facilities, including a larger entrance and access ramp, a shallower staircase, disabled toilet, separate sterilisation room, separate staff facilities and additional surgeries.

Around the practice there are two aerial photographs of Norwich taken in the late 1970's that used to be on surgery ceilings and an old black and white photograph of the row of terraces as they looked in the early 1900's, courtesy of one of our longstanding patients.
