Mark Colwell Principal Dentist Church Court Dental Practice Dumfries

Mark Colwell

Mark Colwell, Principal Dentist has over 25 years’ experience as a dental surgeon. He is committed to bringing the best, affordable dental care to people in Dumfries & Galloway.

Mark ensures that preventive care planning is individually tailored to each patient and that restorative and cosmetic treatments and aftercare are carefully considered with you to ensure the best outcomes.

He has looked after patients at Church Court Dental Practice since 1999 and bought the practice, taking over as Principal Dentist in Autumn 2009 when the previous owner retired.

Dentistry is constantly evolving…

We understand how important it is to keep developing our knowledge, the services we offer and the range of our skills so we can deliver the best outcomes and value to you, our patient.

Church Court has made a significant commitment to providing all our patients with an excellent team of therapists and hygienists so we can deliver truly integrated preventive care. We also aim to continually improve so we can support our team and coordinate consistently high standards of care for you.

A Team Approach

Most of our treatments are carried out here at our dental practice in Dumfries by the Church Court team. We have around 15 registered oral health care professionals led by Mark Colwell.  If you require referral we will refer only to respected professional colleagues on the General Dental Council Specialist register and through NHS hospital consultants.

Providing dental care now and into the future

We have built our team on solid foundations so that individuals can provide long-term experience and continuity of care. At the same time it is important to refresh our practice and bring new people and approaches to enhance the care we can offer you.  We work hard to constantly develop and build the expertise, range of skills, clinical, administrative support and technology at Church Court. This enables us provide you with the best care and advice now and into the future.
