Our Dentists


Charlotte Constantine BDS (Ncl)

Hi, I’m Charlotte.

After growing up in the south of England, I decided to do my dental degree in Newcastle and in 2000 I graduated with merit.  I have been working in the North East ever since.

I have worked in general practice since I started dentistry and my path has now led to Belmont, to run my own practice. Here is where I plan to stay, creating the kind of environment that is both fun to work in and upholds that high standards that is expected of a modern dental practice.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, as it allows me to employ my natural need to fix things. But the most rewarding thing about the job, is the smile on peoples faces when you improve the appearance of their teeth, or when you fix things that they have previously been told is unfixable!

Over the last few years, I have been increasingly involved in more advanced cosmetic dentistry. I have a specific interest in Root Fillings and have achieved my Diploma in Endodontics. 

I look forward to meeting you all and helping you achieve the smile of your dreams!

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Very approachable and supportive to patients and staff
  • As well as fixing teeth we see Charlotte as a DIY specialist!

Catherine Jarvis BDS (Ncl)

Hi, my name is Catherine.

Having qualified from Newcastle dental school in 2002 I have enjoyed being a dentist and I feel very fortunate to have picked a career where I can really help people and build up lasting relationships with so many people.

I have completed an advanced restorative course to be more involved with more complex crown and bridgework.
We are always striving to increase our knowledge and improve our skills. This is both a personal mission, and a requirement from our professional governing body. We feel that being fully up to date with current practices and equipment is an essential part of modern dentistry.

When I am not busy being a dentist I like to run with my dog and am in training for a marathon! I  also enjoy Pilates and I am more than happy to catch up with friends over a gin or 2!

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Has a good sense of humour, especially for a dentist!
  • Always cheerful and smiling, and a good advert for “pearly whites!”

Lucy Veitch BDS (Ncl)

Hi I’m Lucy,

I grew up in Cheshire and qualified with Hons from Newcastle in 1999.

I chose to work in practice, where I enjoy meeting lots of different people.  I thrive on the variety offered in general practice.

I particularly enjoy helping nervous patients feel more comfortable.  Plus, I love learning and teaching and have previously mentored foundation dentists.

I am looking forwards to meeting the patients and working with you to achieve a healthy smile.

When I am not at work, I am out in the hills with my boys, playing tennis or chilling with my Cats.

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Lucy is always cheerful and is a ray of sunshine, even on the grey, winter days.
  • She always seems to be doing some kind of adventure sports, from fresh water swimming, to mountain biking in the hills.  Where does she get the energy?
  • I get confused… Is your name Lucy Veitch or Lucy Tanser?

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Jas is extremely relaxed and the nurses definately find her a pleasure to work with, she is excellent at making it look easy!

Our Dental Nurses


Caroline Davies

Hello, I’m Caroline.

I have now been a dental nurse for over 100 years and I love working with the general public. I think it is a challenging career, but very rewarding.
I particularly like being involved with cosmetic dentistry and implants  because it changes peoples lives and gives them great confidence.

As well as dental nursing, I also enjoyed a brief spell working as a community care worker, helping people rehabilitate after hospitalisation, which I found  extremely rewarding. It’s always a great feeling to know that you have helped someone.
I have  gained my Oral Health Education certificate. This means that I have a more direct involvement with educating patients and promoting good habits, which in turn will improve oral health.  I am also qualified to assist during sedation procedures.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and taking long walks with my dog. 

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Caroline is the most cheerful dental nurse I have ever worked with and nothing is too much trouble.
  • She is a great listener for both staff and patients. And people are always singing her praises.

GDC number:  147427

Hello! I’m Chloe, 

Having been wanting to start an apprenticeship in dental nursing for some time, I joined the Belmont Team in July 2021.  I am currently enrolled on the Dental nurse diploma course at Durham college. I am loving my switch to dental nursing and am settling into the friendly team really well.

Out of work I enjoy walking my dog, socialising with friends and also spending time with my family.

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Chloe has come on leap and bounds with her confidence with working in a healthcare environment and working face to face with people
  • Chloe is very thorough and eager to learn, we are very happy to have her as part of the team and she has a very promising future ahead of her in dental nursing.  Well done Chloe!

Lauren Hall,

Hi, I’m Lauren

I was excited to join the team at Belmont Dental Practice in 2019 as an apprentice dental nurse. Before coming to Belmont  I had completed an NVQ in Business administration in a local care home. This gave me a good grounding for switching to dentistry, with regard to patient care, consent and communication. I realised I wanted to work more hands on with caring for patients and dentistry has given me this opportunity.

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • Lauren settled in straight away at Belmont. She is a great team player and can always be relied upon to help. She has a winning attitude and we are very pleased to have her working with us.
  • Lauren is also a technology whizz and so has helped us with our media by doing videos for the website and facebook page.

Our Receptionists


Julie Sanyang

Hello, I’m Julie

I have been working in dentistry for over  35 years, and since 2010 I have been running our reception. I love working with the public and find that my dental knowledge assists me greatly in my current role. I have recently completed a customer service and business administration qualification and am working continualloy on keeping up to date with dental regulations.

I lived and worked in The Gambia for 8 years and I ran a project with my husband to build a clinic and water well in a remote village. We held lots of fund raising events which enabled us to open a medical centre for those who have no other access to any medical support.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two grandsons, who keep me young and on my toes.

This is what my colleagues think of me!

  • No slacking on Julie’s watch, she keeps us all busy!
  • Very organised and goes through a lot of post-it notes!

    Just had Zoom whitening treatment, so pleased with the results, and the two hour treatment was completely stress free, due to the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, created by everyone who works there.

    Mrs Susan Quinn

    On the occasion I needed to use the out of hours service, I found it to be excellent. I was able to see my own dentist, on a Sunday afternoon and had brilliant treatment.
