Principal Dentist qualified Bristol 1988

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.

Central to your dental care is John’s Philosophy of dental health with the emphasis on prevention and long term dental solutions.

Lynn Chalinder– CEB Dip in Dental Hygiene 1994

Born and brought up in Plymouth, Lynn qualified as a Dental Hygienist in Birmingham and since then has amassed an enormous amount of experience working in very varied clinics in many different communities, both in the Midlands and here in her hometown.

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. Her compassion and professionalism make her a true asset to us here at Pemros.
