Who We Are

James Needham

James grew up in Chesterfield and attended Netherthorpe secondary school. He graduated with his BDS from the University of Sheffield. Upon graduation, he was awarded Sheffield Dental Practitioners’ Club Prize, which is awarded to a single dentist who is adjudged to have set the highest standard of conduct as regards to courtesy, humanity and kindness in the treatment of patients.

He started his career here in Chesterfield and never moved far away. He has spent the last 5 years splitting his time between practices in Lincoln, Chesterfield and Worksop. He finally settled in Clowne having purchased the practice in July 2023.

James has an interest in all areas of dentistry but particularly enjoys restorative dentistry, oral surgery and endodontics (root canal therapy). James is able to provide cosmetic tooth alignment using systems such as Invisalign and fixed braces. Having completed the BAIRD Implant placement course, James can now help you restore your smile with the most modern and advanced treatments. James prides himself on making patients feel like friends and making sure his patients know that they are treated like they are part of his own family.

He lives in a small village on the Derbyshire/ Nottinghamshire border with his wife Amy and three children.

In his spare time James enjoys walks through Sherwood Forest with his two French bulldogs Bella and Luna. James is a hobbyist beekeeper maintaining a small apiary, meaning a jar of honey is never too far away.
