Andrew has delivered lectures on numerous topics including root canal treatment, restoring heavily filled teeth, endodontic re-treatments and surgical endodontics.
Mr Gemmell is happy to see patients for dental rehabilitation on a private basis. The medico-legal report would normally have been completed prior to a referral to Mr Gemmell for treatment planning, quotation and treatment. We routinely see patients on referral from throughout the North East and there are hotels in the vicinity of the practice should patients travel from further afield.
