Alan is our lead principal and has been for over 10 years. Alan graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 1981 and post graduation spent a very busy year working as a House Officer based in the School of Dentistry and the Accident and Emergency department of the Royal Victoria Hospital. This enabled Alan to gain invaluable experience in dealing with many emergency procedures. Alan then joined our team and has practiced with us since 1982 as an associate under Geoff Wilson until Alan took over in 2002.
Alan’s main ethos is to maintain exceptional care at affordable rates making dental care accessible to everyone. Hence, in order to achieve this he has remained under the NHS system whilst other practices have privatised, forcing high costs on to their patients. Alan is particularly proud of where the practice stands today and after being rebuilt in 2005 he has encouraged modernisation throughout all aspects of the practice.
Through expansion Alan has been able to shorten waiting times with the introduction of two associates turning what was a 2 dentist practice in 2005 to a 4 strong practice where we stand today.
