Gillian Wardrope BDS
GDC Number: 283935
Vocational Dental Practitioner
Gillian is the newest member of the team at Discovery Dental Care. She will be completing her Vocational Training at the practice with her trainers Avril and Angela.
Gillian qualified as a dentist in 2019 after completing her BDS degree at the University of Aberdeen. As part of her training, she gained four years clinical experience delivering dental care to patients at the Aberdeen Dental Institute and had the opportunity to practice further afield in Scottish Dental Outreach centres in Elgin and Stornoway, Isle of Lewis.
Prior to her dental training, Gillian studied for four years at the University of Glasgow where she achieved an honours degree in Anatomy. During this time, she explored roles in healthcare and life sciences, volunteering as a patient befriender at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and as a research assistant at the University of Glasgow Dental School.
Gillian finds all aspects of dentistry interesting but particularly enjoys working with children and helping anxious patients through their treatment. She aims to make dental appointments a worry-free experience for every patient and to have preventive dentistry at the heart of her care.
Outside of work, Gillian enjoys running, cycling and exploring new places at every opportunity.
