Meet The Calm & Caring Dentistry Team
Dr Carl Taylor - Practice Owner
Hi, I’m Carl Taylor, the owner of Taylored Dental Care.
I am married to Alicia. We met several years ago dental school, well she was at medical school. We got married a couple of years ago and we had our first daughter in November 2014.
I chose a career in dentistry after a scout camp believe it or not. The military had come down with their death slide. We were practising a parachute drop, but one of the buckles hadn’t been tied up properly and flew up in my face breaking my front tooth.
I trained to be a dentist in Leeds, starting in 1997. After graduating I studied for the diploma in Restorative Dentistry Royal College. In addition I trained to do dental sedation, several orthodontic systems and quite a few managerial courses.
I really like snowboarding, kite surfing and windsurfing. In fact I enjoy anything that involves any sort of water based activity.
Graham Duckitt - Dentist
Hi I’m Graham, I work at the Keighley practice and have done since 2011. I’m originally from the Midlands, then moved to Leeds to study and loved Yorkshire so decided i had to stay and live here!
The most rewarding part of my job is treating anxious and phobic patients by improving their confidence in attending and improving their smile. It gives me great pleasure to help people realise that dentistry isn’t the horrible experience they think it is, or they may have experienced in the past. I am particularly keen on cosmetic treatment with emphasis on tooth friendly techniques including straightening teeth, whitening, bonding and veneers.
I absolutely love my job and i regularly attend courses in order to keep up with the latest techniques and improve my knowledge, so that i can provide the best care for my patients.
Outside of work I love playing most sports, i used to play rugby, but nowadays i enjoy golf, when i can find the time! I always like to see different parts of the world be it city breaks and beach holidays to Europe or to go further afield like Japan, India or Australia. My girlfriend and i have a dog, he keeps us out and about. We love to take him out on walks, as he has loads of energy, he literally never stops.

Bleu Carlisle - Group Practice Manager
Hello, My name is Bleu Carlisle and I am Taylored Dental Care’s Practice Manager. I started working for Taylored Dental Care 3 years ago as a Dental Nurse. I worked very closely with our implantologists ensuring patients journeys were of a high standard. I very much enjoyed Sedation Nursing as I loved being able help put patients anxieties at ease.
I became Team Leader of our Idle practice and soon after I stepped up into a Clinical Management role. I now manage all 4 of our practices and although at times this can be challenging, I love my role and being able to drive Taylored Dental Care forward. I am passionate about my chosen proffesion within Taylored Dental Care, enabling my team to be the very best they can be, while growing with us. I love that our team help so many patients who may never have had a pleasant dental experience.
My role is varied. From ensuring we are compliant with specific registered bodies to the general running on the business on a daily basis, however there is one thing that will never change. I strive for excellent customer service and would like all of our patients to have only the best experience with us here at Taylored Dental Care. I am contactable to all patients via my email, firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning any of our practices.
Outside of work I love spending time with my very active and crazy 5 year old son Harry and partner Steve. I love the outdoors and going anywhere that I can put my wellies on! Walks through the woods and visiting the Yorkshire Dales. I love crime documentaries and always wanted to be a police officer when I was a child. In the future I would love to own a small farm with various animals but a horse is definintely essential!
Sarah Carr - Hygiene Therapist
Hello, I’m Sarah the Dental Hygienist and Therapist here at Taylored Dental Care. You may see myself for treatments such as gum treatments, fillings, whitening treatments, aesthetic dentistry and pediatric dentistry.
My dental career began 14 years ago as a nurse and I then qualified with a merit as a Therapist in 2012 at the University of Leeds. I thoroughly enjoy my profession and I have proudly won many awards for outstanding achievement throughout my training.
My main passion is to help my patients achieve a smile that they are truly proud of! I strive to always make a positive influence in their journeys, to get the best possible outcome for each individual patient. I also really love aesthetic dentistry and take great pleasure in completing white fillings and whitening treatments for my patients. The most satisfying aspect of my job is seeing someone’s confidence rocket, through the help and treatment they have received from ourselves!
A lot of my spare time is taken up looking after my lovable rogue of a Springer Spaniel Mylo, with whom there is never a dull moment. When I do have time I love to travel and visit beautiful cities, with Italy and Prague being some of my favorites.

I love to chat, and have never had a more perfectly matched job whether that’s hearing about our patients families, interests or upcoming holidays or if it’s spending time to reassure a nervous patient and help put them at ease.

Jasmine Jolly - Patient Care Coordinator
Hello, My name is Jasmine and I have recently joined the team as a Patient Care Coordinator here at Taylored Dental Care. I am originally from Leicestershire however I moved to Leeds just over 3 years ago for University. I have recently graduated from University with a BSc in Psychology and have decided to stay in Leeds as I love it so much.
I feel that my degree really helps me to understand patient’s dental anxieties and phobias, allowing me to work through patients’ fears to eliminate them.I look forward to coming to work everyday to speak to patients and enjoy following their journeys the most! I am the first point of contact for new patients and to be able to be there every step of the way is so rewarding. I love to see our pain free dentistry converting extremely anxious patients into patients who no longer fear the dentist.
When I’m not at work I love to visit new places. I learnt to surf whilst at University so I often book surf weekends away at different places. I also love meeting new people so I go out most weekends with friends to socialise. Anything that involves socialising really and I’m there!
