A Friendly and Professional Team
Our team consists of Dr Jeff Amos, his wife Beverley Achilles and daughter Rosie Achilles. Being that rare thing nowadays, a family practice, we take a great pride in our reputation and our personal relationship with patients. We represent an alternative to the corporate chains that dominate dentistry today.
Dr Jeff Amos
Dr Jeff Amos qualified from Manchester University in 1979 and is therefore one of the most experienced dentists practising. Working in the centre of Brighton since 1982, he is privileged to treat patients from all over the country.
He rejected mercury fillings in 1992 and is SMART-Certified for safe removal of amalgams (in fact, he avoids placing metal of any kind in the mouth for reasons of biocompatibility and aesthetics). He is delighted that the EU is finally prohibiting its use and hopes that the UK will follow suit soon.
Jeff is proud to be one of only three UK dentists who are IAOMT-Accredited, officially qualifying him as a Biological/Holistic practitioner. The Clinic has also been designated a Centre of Excellence for Guided Biofilm Therapy, an innovative cleaning technique that reduces the reduces the risk of bacteraemia and oral-systemic link complications.
When he is not being a dentist, Jeff collects modern art (he holds Masters and Doctorate degrees in Art History), plays the piano and guitar, and battles his addiction to classic cars.
Dr Jeff Amos
Beverley joined The Clinic’s team fifteen years ago and became Practice Manager in 2019.
As Jeff’s wife, she is completely au fait with all aspects of the dental world and so can usually answer all queries that patients might have. One of her many strengths is her implacable conscientiousness, which means that all patients’ concerns are dealt with promptly and completely – without fail.
At home, Beverley is devoted to her horses, her three children and Jeff (if she has any time left).
She is passionate about organic food, all environmental issues and sewing.
Dental Nurse - GDC 255498
By a quirk of fate, Rosie is both the best nurse that Jeff has ever worked with and his stepdaughter.
Each member of the team at The Clinic understands the requirements of each and every patient’s individual needs. Further to this, Rosie uses her rare intuition and fantastic dexterity to ensure our patients are as happy when they leave the surgery as when they arrive. Her calmness at all times is also a huge asset and much appreciated by all.
Quite rightly, Rosie has a very busy social life outside the practice and can justifiably be called a keep-fit fanatic She shares Beverley’s passion for healthy food, Jeff’s for Jimi Hendrix, and is devoted to her Maine Coon cats Woody and Monty.
