One of the Youngest Winning Dentists of a Masters Degree in Restorative Dentistry when he was just 27 years of age is Crusading to Bring the People of Scotland Pain Free Dentistry.
Introducing the next generation of Glasgow’s no pain dentists…
Dr Mark Skimming took the brave decision to dramatically cut his wage early in his career to complete a Masters Degree in Restorative Dentistry.
This was to feed his passion to be the absolute best he can be!
And at just 27 years old he became the UK’s youngest ever dentist to receive this advanced qualification. Why did he choose a career in dentistry?
Because of the hands on approach of directly influencing the lives of his patients. Maybe it was because his dad was a Glasgow painter and decorator that he wanted to work in smaller spaces. But combined with the artistic nature of dentistry… this is the profession he has dramatically excelled in.
“After an unrealistic wish to play football for the rest of my days, I decided I wanted to pursue a medical and health care profession where it was achievable to be my own boss and carry out treatment in the ways I felt were most appropriate.”
Working in NHS only dentistry, Mark wasn’t happy with the length of time he got to spend with patients and so decided to open up his dental practice treating private and NHS patients which is located in an old Victorian building.
Mark is a member of the “Association of Dental Implantology” and is the publisher of three Guides including, ‘How Glasgow Women Can Now Say Goodbye to Their Twisted, Crooked and Uneven Teeth’, and ‘How To End Missing Teeth And Denture Anguish’.
Mark has also written the book “Why I Love My Dentist More Than My Valentines Chocolates”, which focuses on his pain free dentistry techniques.
