Mary Gibson

Specialist Periodontist

I am passionate about empowering patients so that they may control periodontal disease.

I work with patients to help them understand how to keep their gums healthy.

  • Qualified in dentistry in 1983 at Liverpool University
  • Holds Fellowship (1987) and Masters Degree (1990)
  • Regional representative in the South East for British Society of Periodontology for 16 years, served on Education sub-committee of the Society.
  • GDC Number: 58216

I have been working at City Bridge Dental since 1990. I believe in empowering patients so that they may control disease reliably and keep their teeth for life with appropriate professional support. With many years’ experience treating severe periodontal disease, I work with patients to help them understand how to keep their gums healthy and treat and manage problems when they occur. I work with my restorative colleagues at City Bridge to ensure that, when complex dentistry is required, it happens in healthy mouths which I have worked with patients to achieve. There is no feeling better than helping a patient achieve pink, healthy gums around firm teeth in a lovely fresh mouth. I care about every one of my patients and I like to put patients at ease by making them laugh!

I have been qualified for over 30 years and had very wide ranging clinical experiences in dentistry before committing myself to City Bridge. Before then, I had worked in prestigious hospital and university positions and in industrial dentistry both as a clinician and educator and in specialist practice in London. I have published research work and I have lectured nationally and internationally.

Outside of my role, I am very sporty, with a particular passion for golf and tennis. I love theatre and reading, as well as spending time with friends and family.
