John Hill – BDS DPDS
Having been born in the West Country, it is not surprising that John has a fascination and love of the sea and this is reflected in the colour and imagery of the practice. Prior to studying dentistry, John pursued a career in Biochemistry, which examines how our bodies work and how our natural chemicals interact in illness and health.
John qualified in Bristol in 1988, has a diploma in sedation and is particularly interested in the treatment of nervous patients. He regularly attends further training courses in all aspects of dentistry to keep up to date with the latest innovations.

She has a heart for education and access for all and to this end, Lynn has been teaching the dental and hygiene/therapy students at our Peninsula Dental School sites in Devonport and Derriford since 2014.
It may surprise you to know that Lynn began her career as a terrified patient who never wanted to visit a dentist again after some dreadful experiences as a youngster, so is incredibly empathetic towards anyone who may have gone through a similar experience.
