Whickham Dental Practice welcomes experienced dentist to the team.

Whickham Dental Practice is pleased to welcome experienced dentist Paul McGuirk to their expanding team.

Paul joins the practice bringing 18 years of experience in family dentistry to the already experienced team, underpinning the practice’s commitment to providing outstanding care delivered by best-in-class dental professionals.

Paul said, “I am thrilled to have joined Whickham Dental Practice and to be working with such dedicated professionals. As a Whickham resident myself, I am delighted to be part of the team providing the care and services that patients of all ages in and around Whickham require”.

Having studied Dentistry at Newcastle University, Paul qualified in 2002 and has since lived and worked in the area, previously providing dental care for the residents of Chester-Le-Street in a former position. 

Clinical Manager Amanda Cain said, “we are delighted to welcome Paul to the team. We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional care and treatment calmly and gently, and Paul will be a great asset to both the team and our patients in this regard”.

Despite the upheavals of the recent year, the widely respected practice has continued to go from strength to strength, expanding the team across all areas. As part of its strategic growth plans, the practice has promoted dental nurse Louise Carter to Head Nurse, Colette Meller to Head Receptionist, and welcomed new team members Dental Nurse Kate Webb and Student Dental Nurse Britanie Rhodes.

Whickham Dental Practice Principal Andrew Dixon added, “as Whickham’s longest established independent dental practice, we have always focused on delivering the services our patients need in the manner they require. We look forward to working with Paul as we take the practice forward and continue to deliver a best in class experience for all our patients”.
