(BDS [U.Lond) 48098] I joined it in 1974, before it moved to Mill Lane in 1981.There it expanded rapidly until it accommodated thirteen general dentists working shifts, a full time orthodontist, and a full-time periodontal surgeon, five hygienists and a laboratory. In 1988 I left the NHS and converted the Practice to Private treatment, with a partner and three associates. In 1993 we won the National 3M Best Practice award.
