Ruth crook

Principal Dentist

BDS Dundee 2009 MSc (Perio)

Ruth started here at Kendal Dental Care in 2018 after moving down from Aberdeenshire. 

She qualified from Dundee in 2009, and after several years working in general practice completed an MSc in Periodontology from UCLAN in 2019. Since 2017 Ruth has focused her practice on periodontology including regenerative treatments and the treatment of peri-implant issues.  She also works in Liverpool alongside Dr Ian Dunn. 

Ruth is a member of the British Society of Periodontology and keeps up to date with developments in the field by various means including Euro Perio and BSP meetings. She is fortunate that she can draw on skills learnt from spending time with clinicians including Drs. Ian Dunn, Robert Oretti, Boota Singh Ubhi, & Ricardo Kern. Ruth has a holistic perspective to treating periodontal disease which helps to stabilise her patients oral and overall health.

Ruth is also nearing the completion of a diploma in Oral surgery, which should help us to provide more complicated extractions, implant placement and sedation to our patients. Sedation can be particularly beneficial for longer or more complex treatments, as well as for anxious patients. 

Ruth enjoys climbing and exercise in her spare time which helps her to keep up with her young family.
