Full Profile

GDC NO 51994

David was born in Irvine and brought up in Wishaw, Scotland. After completing his education at The High School of Glasgow, he studied dentistry at University College Cardiff and The Welsh National School of Medicine.

After graduation in 1978, he worked for four years in the hospital service, undertaking advanced training in a number of disciplines. In 1982, he went into general dental practice in Cornwall working in three practices in Helston, Redruth and Penzance.

In April 1985 David bought the Hollygrove Dental Practice in Quedgeley, which moved and expanded into St James Dental in 1990. David has two postgraduate qualifications, MFGDP (UK) and DPDS, and was a vocational trainer for many years. Since 1992, David has held many senior positions in dentistry at a local, regional and national level.

Currently, David is on the General Dental Practice Committee (with five years on the executive) and the Young Dentist Committee of the BDA. Founder member of Gloucestershire Independent Dentists (GID) and currently vice chair, David has successfully established study groups for GID hygienists, managers and receptionists and is currently working to establish a similar group for GID dental nurses. He has also participated on numerous working parties, most recently Medical Emergencies and Resuscitation Standards for Clinical Practice and Training for Dental Practitioners and Dental Care Professionals.

David is married with two children, both of whom are currently studying dentistry at university. He claims this is not his fault!
