John was Principal Dentist at Mains Drive Dental for 25 years.  He handed over the reins to John Price in 2013, in order to spend some time with his family, while ensuring that the care of all patients at Mains Drive Dental was in safe hands.  Truth be told, he missed both the work and the patients, not to mention the Mains Drive Dental family, and jumped at the chance to return to the practice.  He remains committed to providing a high quality of care in a pleasant environment, and is very much enjoying being part of the team.  In his spare time he likes to keep fit, and has recently taken up motorcycling.  A mid-life crisis - provided he lives to 116 - so far, so good!  He looks forward to welcoming faces old and new.
