Willie Jack Dentistry in Ludlow is a private dental practice and part of Alliance Court Dental Practice under the ownership of Dr Arnoud Roele. Dr Willie Jack limits his practice to restorative & implant dentistry. General dental treatments include veneers and crowns, white fillings, contouring and whitening. The practice uses digital x-rays to reduce radiation and improve the images obtained. They also use other up-to-date technologies, including dental chairs designed both for comfort and for prevention of cross-infection. The chairs also incorporate intra-oral cameras that allow patients to see inside their mouths during procedures. The practice is located in a purpose built clinic at Ludlow’s Eco park on the A49 bypass.
Willie qualified from Edinburgh in 1983 and since 1992 he has placed & restored several thousand dental implants. Willie is one of very few dentists in Britain to obtain his Membership in General Dental Surgery (MGDS) from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and a Masters degree (MMedSci) in Oral Implantology & Biomaterials from the University of Sheffield.

After qualifying from Edinburgh, Willie worked as a community paediatric dentist for Lothian Health Board. In 1985 he moved to Wales and established an NHS practice in Newtown. For 20 years Willie has worked privately so that he can offer the very best dental care, individual to you. His commitment to providing effective, high quality care for his patients has led him to undertake a rigorous programme of post graduate training; focusing on restorative and implant dentistry.
Willie initially began restoring implants placed by other surgeons in 1991: since then he has placed several thousand dental implants – over 1,500 patients have benefited from that wonderful feeling of having their own teeth once more! He was recently director of dental implants for a dental company with responsibility for ensuring the highest standards of care in over 50 dental practices. These principles have been maintained in his own practice, ensuring the highest possible standards of clinical, hygiene and technical excellence. Resisting offers to work abroad, Willie prefers to stay in Britain, as over the years patients have come to seem more like friends, and he cares about them as people not just about their teeth!
Willie and his team bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to dental practice. Our first priority is to listen to you. We need to find out what you want for your dental health and appearance so that we can plan the treatment that suits you best to achieve your ideal, healthy smile.
Born Netherlands 1954
After qualifying Arnoud spent five years as a Dental Officer in the Royal Navy, some of it at sea but most of the time with the Royal Marines. Six years as an associate dentist in Shrewsbury followed and then in 1989 he opened a practice in the centre of Ludlow. Since 1992 the practice has only treated patients privately in order to maximise the potential for excellent dental care. In 2007 came the opportunity to move, and expand, the practice to a purpose-built site on the Eco Business Park outside the town. This has allowed other dentists with special interests to join the practice and thereby improve the service offered to all our patients. Arnoud's interests within dentistry focus on providing excellence in dentistry coupled with a personable approach to the patient. Outside dentistry he is a family man who enjoys outdoor pursuits and the arts.
