About Graye's Dental Care

About Graye's Dental Care

Graye's Dental Care was established by Richard and Jennifer Graye 20 years ago with a mission to provide the highest levels of service and dental care in a friendly, supportive environment.

At Graye's Dental Care we provide complete dental care, from simple treatments and sound advice through to the most complex dentistry. We are proud of the fact that we don’t need to advertise: our practice has grown from its humble beginnings 20 years ago completely through recommendation by our patients.

Our team includes:

  • Richard Graye BDS (1986)

    Richard is a native of Huddersfield and did his dental training with Jenny in Wales. He is certain that his rapid hair loss can be attributed to the experience of working in a practice full of women! Richard spends his spare time playing hockey and helping out at Wakefield Hockey Club. As a keen motorcyclist, Richard enjoys nothing more in the summer months than a good blast round a race track - though he admits to usually getting overtaken by just about everyone and making James May seem positively Stig-like.

  • Jennifer Graye BDS (1987)

    Hailing from Northern Ireland, Jenny came to Huddersfield for the better weather - and because she married Richard! If she wasn’t a dentist, Richard is certain she would be a Shoe Designer for Jimmy Choo, though Jenny prefers to think she would make an excellent Interior Designer. Outside of work Jenny's time is taken up looking after her family and showing the youngsters at the gym what real effort is!

  • Michael Davies (BDS 2015)

    Originating from Gods true back garden Middlesbrough, I qualified from University of Leeds in 2015. After qualifying, I worked as a foundation dentist in Great Ayton near Middlesbrough and for the last year I have been working in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) department at Leeds General Infirmary. I like all aspects of restorative dentistry but I have a keen interest in aesthetic and adhesive dentistry. I am also aiming to gain a diploma in implant dentistry in the future so I can provide this restorative option to my patient’s.

     Outside of dentistry I see myself as a fair-weather cyclist! I also like to play squash and football. For my sins in a past life I support Middlesbrough FC and try to get to as many games as possible, which is my excuse for me being folliclely challenged.
