About the Gentle Dental Centre in Darlington

Since the 1950’s there has been a dental practice in place at Woodland Road, Darlington. The building itself dates back to the late 1800’s and in the 1950’s Mr Kelly converted it into a dental practice. In 1989 Gary Parker took over the practice and now in 2017 it starts its next phase of ownership with Scott Phillips.


Scott was born and brought up in Gibraltar and came to the NorthEast in 2008 when he started his studies at Newcastle University and now can’t see himself living anywhere else!


He is enjoying continuing the good work his predecessors delivered whilst developing some ideas of his own including bringing in extra services to enhance patient care.


Currently studying for a Masters degree, Scott has a vision of a practice where all dental treatment can be provided under one roof. No need to refer for specialist care, this will be available to all at the Gentle Dental Centre in Darlington.

Scott’s long term goal to is be able to provide every aspect of dentistry under one roof so that him and his team can look after patients no matter their needs, and therefore allow them to be cared for in a familiar environment by the team they have grown to trust.
