ABOUT US   A little bit about who we are.


Linthorpe House Dentistry & Aesthetics is the latest incarnation of the dental business that has operated in various guises for generations; since around 1972 at the Linthorpe Road site but going back generations at a former site on Borough Road.   It has been Mellor and Associates,  Kenefec and Mellor,  Harrison, Kenefec and Mellor, Casartelli, ...


We are proud to continue as a new chapter of this long dental story.


Linthorpe House Dentistry & Aesthetics is owned by Matt Newbould and on 14th December 2018 completed the purchase of the business from former owner and retiring Jonathan Mellor.


Matt inherited an experienced team, namely Cath Carrigan (Practice Manager), Alison Reed (Hygienist) and Zarah Hussain (dental nurse) who have been at the Practice for 40 years, 7 years and 4 years respectively.  Matt also brought 2 members of his original team, Carmen Robinson, who is now Treatment Coordinator and Stacey Hugill who is a dental nurse.  Matt worked with Carmen and Stacey at his former Practice in Hardwick, Stockton for many years and wanted to draw upon their experience to help develop our offering at Linthorpe House. Making up the rest of the team are our Dental Therapist, Beki Heald, and our Saturday team:  Dental nurses Roxeanne Brown, Lisa Raine and associate dentist Maxine Furley.


Matt Newbould


Matt qualified at Newcastle University in 1995.  His first job was on Parliament Road, a few hundred yards from Linthorpe House. He worked in Middlesbrough, Stokesley, West Aukland and Yarm before buyimg Hardwick Dental Practice in 2000 and running it successfully for many years.  Matt also set up and ran with the help of Carmen, a dental service in HMP Kirklevington Grange, Yarm. Following on from this successful venture, Matt and Carmen were asked to set up a dental service in the new Roseberry Park Hospital (formerly St Lukes). This service is now run by Carmen with Barbara Ruivo Caetano(dentist) visiting to provide dental treatments to the patients residing there.

Matt spends some of his spare time watching football either suffering the exploits of Middlesbrough FC  with his teenage children  or watching his son Ben, who is often more successful with his team Leven Athletic U 15s

He is also a keen allotment gardener, and enjoys bringing produce in to work for the team and sometimes patients to try.



Cath Carrigan


Cath has  worked at the Practice now for 40 years and is our Practice Manager.  She has seen many changes over the years and seen dentists come and go.  All of our patients love Cath and she  treats  our customers like a big  family.  She has seen families attend for many years and seen children grow in to adults and now they bring their own children.

Often Cath will answer the phone and recognize a patient's voice before they even say who they are.

As well as working tirelessly at the Practice, Cath devotes her spare time to her family, her church and helping others.  Her Macmillan coffee mornings held at the Practice raise hundreds of pounds a year for charity.



Alison Reed




Carmen Robinson


Carmen qualified as a dental nurse in 2007. Shortly afterwards she joined Matt at Hardwick Dental Practice in Stockton. Carmen also trained as an Oral Health Educator and then helped Matt to establish dental clinics within HMP Kirklevington Grange, Yarm and Roseberry Park Hospital, Middlesbrough.  Carmen still runs the clinic within Roseberry Park, visiting every week.  She divides her time between work and looking after her young family.

As well as dental nursing, Carmen spends much of her time in the Practice working on reception or carrying out Treatment Coordinator duties. 

Carmen is available for free consultations as ourTtreatment Coordinator.  Any patients/potential patients can book in for free initial consultations with Carmen. Although she can not offer treatment, her vast experience allows her to offer advice on all of our dental, cosmetic dental and facial aesthetic offerings
