Indy has been providing teeth straightening since 2003 and has expertise using all the current systems including Invisalign (clear braces), 6Monthsmiles, Fastbraces and the Inman Aligner. He is also our resident facial aesthetics expert and has been treating patients with Botox since 2004.

He is very friendly, relaxed and easy to get on with... Just read our testimonials to see »

In his spare time Indy loves spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He is also a keen fan of all sports and when he is not at work or with his family you will either find him watching TV, playing football or watching the mighty Watford FC where he has a season ticket.

Dave's bio »

Dr David Carr

BDS Ncle 2002 | GDC no. 80578

He worked in Newcastle before taking a post at Sydney Dental Hospital Australia, treating patients and teaching undergraduates. Since moving to Bury St Edmunds in 2007, Dave has been strongly committed to the ongoing development of his professional skills and strives to continue delivering excellent standards of clinical dentistry for his patients.

In 2014 he was awarded a distinction for his Masters degree in Restorative Dental Practice from the highly regarded Eastman Dental Institute University College London. This course has further raised the high standards of his general dental care and has given him valuable experience in dealing with the more complex treatments.

Dave’s wife and 3 young boys keep him very busy, but when a moment arises he can normally be found in the gym or watching his beloved hometown football team Liverpool.

Amanda's bio »

Amanda Thompson

Receptionist

I’ve been the receptionist at Cathedral Dental since April 2012 and during that time have completed a NVQ Level 2 in Customer Service. I am in the practice most days and can be found at the desk helping patients and booking appointments. I am also studying part time towards my degree in Criminology and Psychological Studies.

In my spare time I can be found with friends or on the sofa at home watching DVDs and eating a bit too much cake. (I can also be spotted at the gym regularly attempting to burn off the bit too much cake!)

I’ve been a nurse at Cathedral Dental since 2004 and became a qualified and registered nurse in 2006. You will find me in surgery with Dave and occasionally helping patients on Reception. I have just achieved my Certificate in Oral Health Education, so I can now offer advice to patients on how to keep their mouth healthy.
