We get to know your teeth, personally.

Alexia Chandler Courtyard Dental Practice


I am Alexia and I qualified from Birmingham University in 1992 (GDC 68086). I worked in hospital initially doing Maxillofacial surgery and Orthodontics and continued Oral Surgery and Orthodontics one day a week whilst working in practice.


I set up The Courtyard Dental Practice in 2007 once my youngest daughter was settled in school. I stopped working at the hospital in 2017 to allow more time in practice as it continued to grow.


I enjoy the day to day challenge of dentistry and growing my skills as things change. Outside of work I run, walk two bouncy springer spaniels and enjoy reading. I also love the rugby.
