BDS (U.Bris) MFDS.RCS (Eng.) GDC: 76602 Gary qualified from The University of Bristol in 1999. Following qualification, Gary worked as a Senior House Officer in the Oral Surgery department at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, at this time he became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons (England), by examination. Since 2004, Gary has been one of the Partners at Exeter Advanced Dentistry (formerly Hampton Place Dental Practice). Gary’s focus is primarily on restorative and implant treatments which help people, often with widespread failing dental work, to reconstruct their mouths and make them functional and natural-looking – sometimes for the first time in a patient’s life. Having lectured both in the UK and abroad, Gary has a reputation for high quality, aesthetic dental work. He is also one of only a few users of the latest ‘Trios’ digital impression system in the South West. This enables dental work to be planned and executed digitally and prevents the need for messy impressions which inevitably increases patient comfort. Gary uses the ‘Nobel Biocare’ dental implant system and is currently the fastest-growing user in the South-West. He has been treating patients with dental implants for fourteen years.
