Meet the Team


Nicki worked for three years as a Dental Nurse after leaving school but with a passion for making things soon became interested in dental technology and qualified as a dental technician at Cardiff in 1989.

She joined Tim Brothers as partner in Bristol Crown in 1992 and then in 2015 became sole owner of the company.

Nicki takes great pride with her team in providing a quality driven lab to lab service for fellow technicians.

She is still very much hands on in the business, overseeing the quality control of our products


Marcello left his home in Italy at the age of 19 and moved the UK.  He trained as a dental technician on day release in Cardiff whilst working at a lab in Devon and joined us here at Bristol Crown in the 2000.

If you have any questions about our products or need some help with planning a case then Marcello is the man to speak to! He will always go out of his way to help and has a wealth of knowledge in Dental Technology


Kate followed in the footsteps of her Grandfather who was a dental technician and joined Bristol Crown straight from school. She is our longest serving member of staff having been here for 24 years!

She did day release from the lab back in those early days at Cardiff and got her HNC and HND in dental technology.

In the lab Kate specialises in the colouring and finishing of zirconia and she is an invaluable member of our team!


Charlie studied Art and Design at City Of Bristol College and then joined us at Bristol Crown in September 2015 as an apprentice in our machine shop whilst doing a day release course in Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering

He has worked his way round the lab learning all the processes and has proven to be a great asset to our company! Not surprisingly we kept Charlie on at the end if his apprenticeship. With his background in art he has a great eye for detail and shows a real talent for designing in CAD


Ben studied Education And Design Technology at Bath University after leaving school and successfully graduated in 2007

He joined Bristol Crown back in 2008 when our milling centre was just taking off.

Ben is our resident expert in all things CADCAM and his expertise is crucial to the smooth running of our milling centre! The wealth of knowledge he has acquired over the years has enabled us to grow and develop as a company.


Wendy joined Bristol Crown in 2017 to do our admin and spends her time working between us and Southmead Hospital.

Wendy ensures the smooth running of all things admin at Bristol Crown!


Molly graduated from University College Birmingham with an FdA in Specialist Hair And Media Make Up in 2017 and joined Bristol Crown in the summer just to help out on a temporary basis.

She hasn’t looked back and is now working full time learning all aspects of the business. She is enjoying being hands on in the milling centre and has become a great asset to the team! Molly is also currently doing a distance learning marketing course to help with the business.
