Dr Bruce McKenzie Strickland

Dr Bruce McKenzie Strickland
BDS DipImpDent RCS (Eng)
GDC NO. 66125

Bruce is passionate about educating and treating patients to enable them to keep their teeth for life, not just patching what has broken but also treating the cause of the problem, thus restoring patients to dental health. He has made this focus the centre of the Care Dentals ethos.

His own field of expertise is within implant dentistry, and as part of his continuing professional studies he has completed his postgraduate diploma with the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He has been placing dental implants within practice for the last 12 years.

When Bruce has nothing else to do he will occasionally be found lecturing with the International Team of Implantology and coaching his referring dentists, through care dentals in-house mentoring programme. When he is really kicking his heels you may see him on his bike cycling the Crieff countryside.
