Edward M Ross BDS (Edin)

Edward M Ross BDS (Edin)

Eddie qualified in 1989 from the now sadly departed Edinburgh Dental School. Eddie was fortunate to be accepted as a Vocational Trainee when this was still a voluntary scheme. For this and many of his interests and techniques in Dentistry, he owes much credit to his then trainer and now partner Iain Stewart.

Often seen around the practice with tools in hand, he is clearly happiest when fixing things; be it in his surgery, at the practice or at home. As for his time off, any activity where there is a hill or water is sure to see him return to the surgery, as he puts it, “generally quite enthusiastic”.
