We strongly believe that having a great team has been the key to our success. Each member of our team has been personally hand-picked for their enthusiasm, skills and expertise and we commit ourselves to make our patients orthodontic experience a pleasant one.
Our team of orthodontists, John Serrano Davey and Annette Rittig and our specialist orthodontist, Peter Douglas are passionate about their work, and find it extremely rewarding to be able to give people stunning smiles and greater self-esteem. They are all exceptionally well qualified, having trained extensively with some of the most respected orthodontists, and actively continue to improve their knowledge and skills.
Our orthodontic therapists, Rebecca Knighton and Aimee Smith are similarly enthusiastic, and play a vital role in the success of our practice. They deliver a range of treatments including placing and adjusting fixed appliances, as well as helping to ensure a positive experience for all patients.
Peter Douglas BDS (Sheffield) 1983, Specialist Orthodontist GDC No 57550 – Principal
I qualified at Sheffield University and set up Raynesway Dental in 1988. I am a Specialist Orthodontist recognised by the General Dental Council and am passionate about my work. I find it extremely rewarding to be able to give people beautiful smiles and help them to feel more confident about themselves. I have trained extensively and studied around the world with some of the most respected orthodontists and actively seek out ways of continuing my knowledge and skills.
I am married to Barbara and have two grown up children, Jemma and Michael. I enjoy family life, travelling and outdoor pursuits.
John qualified as a Dental Surgeon at Bristol University in 1980, and after many years providing general dental services, developed an interest in Orthodontics. Gradually, this interest led him to study and train in the discipline over a five year period, and to more and more of his time being devoted solely to this speciality. He started working as an Orthodontic provider at Raynesway in 1994, and continues to work here on a regular basis, despite having spent six years living with his family in Marbella, Southern Spain, from where he would commute to Derby. This year he decided it was time for a change again and, returning with his family to live once again in the UK, he now does the commute in reverse, flying back to attend to his Spanish patients on a monthly basis.
John has extensive experience of treating younger patients here in the UK, normally under the NHS, but has gained considerable expertise in the treatment of Adult patients thanks to his time spent in Spain, where the consequence of there being no NHS for children results in more patients opting for treatment later in life.
John is particularly interested in Dento-facial Orthopaedics, or to put it simply, “Growing Faces”, in order to achieve not simply straight teeth, but beautifully proportioned faces and profiles as well.
Annette – Orthodontist
I am originally from Germany, and I also have my own practice near Chesterfield. I enjoy practicing orthodontics here at Raynesway. In my spare time I enjoy family life and taking care of/ riding my horse.
I qualified as an Orthodontic Therapist in 2009 and consider myself to be a friendly, confident individual who is always happy to help.
