Specialist Periodontics and Dental Implants

Having qualified from Newcastle University in 1988, Gary has undertaken numerous postgraduate qualifications and obtained the Membership of General Dental Surgeons (MGDS RCS 1992), a Masters Degree in Periodontology 1995 (gum treatment), a Membership of Restorative Dentistry (MRD) from The Royal College of Surgeon 1999 and the Faculty of General Dental practitioners specialist Diplomas in Implant Dentistry 2005 and Restorative Dentistry 2010 (RCS). He is a registered specialist with the General Dental Council (GDC) in periodontology, one of only two specialists on the Fylde coast.

He is a recognised specialist for gum treatments and has placed over 4000 dental implants since 1989 both in private practice at various locations as a visiting specialist and at Manchester Dental Hospital.

Gary is a nationally recognised lecturer on dental Implants and gum treatment, having lectured both for the Dental training department in Manchester and internationally for the Royal College of Surgeons on the dental Implant diploma training program in Germany. He was also active in the initial foundation of The London Dental Implant Study Club that became the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI).

Since starting St Annes Dental Clinic (Fylde Coast Dental Implant Centre) in 1996 the clinic has grown to one of the most recognised referral centres on the Fylde Coast for dentists wishing specialist treatment for their patients in aspects of dental implants and gum treatment. It is one of only a handful of local dental clinics that has multi trained dental specialists permanently based at one clinical site. Gary is also passionately committed to providing high quality National Health Service dentistry for local patients in the North West and thus the clinic has expanded from a single dentist in 1996 to 7 dental surgeons today.

In his spare time Gary likes to spend time with his family, plays golf and sadly commits himself to further study in all matters dental.
