Gwersyllt Dental Care is a private dental practice close to the town of Wrexham, the dentist at the practice, Dr Phillip Guest, had been looking for an alternative to the current way of running a dental practice with the principal being the business owner.
Phillip commented to us that he was tired of having to run the dental practice in the 2 min between each patient and that Future Health Partnership now offered him a viable way to go back to being a dentist and looking after the patients, knowing that there was a motivated and inspired team capable of running the business together.
Meet the team
Phillip grew up in Malvern and qualified from Birmingham University. After serving in the Royal Navy he entered general practice and took over Gwersyllt Dental Practice. During that time the practice has grown and modernised and has been used as a training practice for newly qualified dentists.
Now a highly experienced dentist, his main interests are prevention of dental disease, high quality cosmetic treatments and implant dentistry. He is married with two wonderful daughters. If he wasn’t a dentist he would like to be a golfer (in his wildest dreams!)
His other interests include football, cricket, running and popular music and he is happy to talk about them if asked!
