Meet Our Team

Samuel Barry Lemon BDS

Principal dentist, Barry Lemon BDS graduated in 2008 from Dundee University and spent the following four years at Kirriemuir Dental Practice. It was during this time that his natural approach to treating nervous patients and children shone through.

In 2015, Barry was delighted to win Scottish Dentist of the Year at the Scottish Dental Awards. Over the past few years, Barry has developed his love of orthodontics and is an Invisalign and Quick Straight Teeth practitioner. In his spare time, Barry enjoys downhill biking, rugby and spending time with his little girls, Saskia (3) and Genevieve (1).

Craig Taylor BDS – Dentist

My name is Craig Taylor and I have practiced general dentistry around Glasgow since 1981 but have been in Newton Mearns since 1987.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but particularly like oral surgery and aesthetics— teeth and facial. I have been doing Botox and Dermal Fillers for the last 15 years.

I recently gave up work and it took me 6 months to realised I missed dentistry –the patients, the staff and the working environment so I jumped at the opportunity to work 2 days in Lochwinnoch.

When I’m not working I enjoy travel along with many sports and pastimes including golf, curling and skiing.
