Stuart crook

Principal Dentist

BDS Dundee 2009 MFDS RCS(Ed) MClinDent (Pros)

After graduating in Dundee, Stuart spent a number of years working in Aberdeenshire, whilst managing a small holding in his spare time. Having a keen interest in further education he spent four years earning his Masters in Clinical Dentistry (Prosthodontics) at King’s College London. During this time, he also helped mentor younger dentists in the initial years of their career. This desire to help people reach their full potential has continued with his team at KDC.

Stuart & his family moved down to Kendal in 2016, where he became a partner at Kendal Dental Care. He became the Practice Principal in 2022 and has continued to develop both the practice and the team.

More recently, he has been working towards a Diploma in Orthodontics. This is almost complete, having recently achieved a distinction in his viva.

He has a particular interest in providing excellent, and personalised dentures to patients, who are either unsuitable for, or do not wish implants. He works closely with both his team, lab tech Ollie Wade to provide the best results that they can.

There is however, always room for improvement and so Stuart continues to spend a lot of his time learning from the best clinicians around, wherever they may be.

He believes that we have a unique opportunity to help improve not only your dental, but your general health too. The best dentistry is no dentistry, and his whole team will work with you to optimise your preventative strategy.

When not thinking ‘teeth’, Stuart can be found out and about with his kids, or running & cycling around The Lakes.
