Dr John Gittins

Dental Surgeon (GDC Reg No. 65785) BDS (Bristol)1990 MFGDP(UK)1995 DPDS(Bristol) 2005 Dip Dental Implants (Bristol) 2012

I have been at Highland Dental for over 23 years and ran the Dental Practice with my wife (Kerry) for over 18 years.


Dr John Gittins has been offering sedation for over 20 years and has treated hundreds of patients who otherwise would not have been able to enjoy the life changing results of successful treatments. If you are particularly worried about dental treatment we can help by using sedation. You will remain conscious but drowsy and in a state of relaxation as your treatment takes place. Whilst under sedation a number of teeth can be treated in one session so patients feel it is convenient and cost effective as well as removing the fear of coming to the dentist.

I have experience in all aspects of dentistry but I have a particular interest and experience in dental sedation and implants.

I always try to be friendly and welcoming and to keep my patients informed all the way through any treatment. The practice prides itself on putting patients first at all times.

I have always kept up to date with dental education including 3 years of implant training and I am a member of the ADI (Association of Dental Implants). I attend dental sedation up-dates with SAAD (Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry).

In my free time, I enjoy walking and running with my dogs and spending time with my growing family (although bringing up teenagers is not easy)!
