Our Dentists


Denis R. Stubley B.D.S. D.G.D.P. R.C.S. F.I.C.O.I.

Mr Stubley was educated at Archibald Primary School and then Middlesbrough High School, leaving in 1972 to become an undergraduate at The Dental School of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Graduating in 1977 he entered general practice in a large progressive practice in Nottingham where he remained until 1985, starting this practice in Acklam as a completely new venture in November 1984. He undertook further clinical postgraduate education in orthodontics at Middlesbrough General Hospital. He was one of the first practitioners to work with Dental Implants in the North East and was the first practitioner to introduce both Invisalign clear aligners and the Inman Aligner to the area. He was the first dentist in the North East to invest in a Cerec cad-cam unit to produce milled ceramic restorations at the chairside.

He is a member of the British Dental Association ( BDA ) and a member of the General Dental Practitioners Association. He has successfully attained the Diploma in General Dental Practice of the Royal College of Surgeons of England by examination. He is a member of the Association of Dental Implantologists and has been awarded a Fellowship by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He is a past regional president of the BDA and has been area chairman of the BDA on two occasions. He is a past president of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne Dental Graduates Association and former student president of the Dental School.

Mr Stubley is married and having had four children, despite his gently advancing years, retirement is a distant dream.


Georgina Langhorn B.D.S.

Mrs Langhorn was educated at Ian Ramsay in Stockton and then as an undergraduate at Kings Dental School and Hospital in London completing her degree in 1991. She worked in general practice in London for eight years before joining us in Acklam. Mrs Langhorn devotes a lot of time to post-graduate education to enhance her ability and knowledge. She has attended advanced courses on the provision of American style veneers.

Mrs. Langhorn is an acredited Invisalign practitioner and registered to provide the Inman Aligner for correction of dental crowding. She has extensive experience of post-graduate orthodontics and has held the post of Clinical Assistant in Orthodontics at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton. Mrs Langhorn is a current member of the British Dental Association.

She has consummate skill and patience, which she needs in abundance for the busy life she has as a practicing dental surgeon and mother of three sons and a daughter.


Sarah Makepeace B.D.S.

Mrs Makepeace was educated at Kader Primary School in Acklam before studying at Macmillan College in Middlesbrough. She was a patient of Mr Stubley’s since the age of eight and in fact it was a prolonged course of orthodontic treatment which she received as a child that encouraged her to study dentistry!

She attended the Dental School at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, where she graduated in 2000 with a merit in Child Dental Health. Mrs Makepeace is a member of the British Dental Association and continues to further her post-graduate education whenever possible. She is also a proud mother of three growing children.

Ben Scott B.D.S

We recently welcomed Mr Scott to our team, who joins us on a part time basis, usually on Tuesdays. He is an experienced private practitioner, who is able to care for both current and new patients in the practice. He has settled well and we are sure that our more recent members will be glad of his care and attention to detail.
