Meet The Team

We get to know your teeth, personally.



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.’



Dr Cope uses the Osstem and Nobel Biocare implant systems and has over 20 years experience in this procedure.

He also has successfully completed an implant dentistry course.

I am always looking of ways to broaden my knowledge and expertise within the Dental profession. I enjoy looking after patients and developing new skills in all areas of dentistry.


In my spare time I enjoy swimming and most of my spare time I dedicate to my  daughter who swims at a semi-professional level.  In between the swimming and watching my son play his football, I love reading books. We are a busy family with shared interests.

Originally I am from Poland and am extremely proud of my heritage. I love to visit my family to spend quality time with them. I encourage my children to embrace different cultures as I do feel we live in an extremely diverse world.



I have a B TEC in Advanced Business Management  and worked as an Administrator for 15 years, culminating as a Director of a 55 bedded  Nursing Home.

More recently I have worked for a Farming Charity as PA to the CEO and then with a construction company doing Accounts payable.

I missed the public sector so much I joined The Courtyard Dental Practice in January 2022 as Receptionist and I love every minute of it. I thrive on keeping busy and love meeting people and providing excellent service to our patients.

My spare time is spent with my four grandsons and my little dog Alfie, a Norfolk Terrier. I’m fortunate to live in a picturesque village by a canal so have lovely walks and views.  I enjoy reading and follow a strong faith.
