  • David Pulman

    Dentist BDS Glasg 1966 GDC registration Number - 40918

    I have had the pleasure of working as a dental surgeon in Bingley since 1974. I believe in making dental appointments a pleasure not a chore, by using sedation; hypnosis, distraction techniques and effective anaesthesia and I have always endeavoured to make fear of the dentist a thing of the past. I enjoy my work with local groups and committees, and am still as enthusiastic as ever and hope to continue for a good while yet.
