Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh 2018 | National Diploma in Science (Dental Technology) BTEC 2005 GDC Number: 130104

Colin Wilson, Dip CDT RCS Ed has been a dental technician for over 18 years, individually crafting dentures, implant-retained dentures and implant screw-retained bridges.

Colin decided to set up his own private dental laboratory ‘Active Dental Lab’ over 10 years ago, which has gone from strength to strength. He has also joined the team at Dental Solutions and holds regular surgeries at the clinic.

His passion for dentistry led him back to university for 2 years to qualify as a clinical dental technician. Colin meets patients face-to-face, as well as making their appliances. Colin is there to look and listen to what the patient needs and is then able to go back to the laboratory and personally produce what was discussed. Colin’s passion and obsession are making dentures to the highest standard and dentures that look natural and are designed to blend and disappear in the mouth.

He helps to give patients back the confidence they had before they lost their natural teeth. Seeing patients smile and their reactions when they receive their new teeth is what drives Colin and gives him the motivation to keep up with today’s technology and always learn the very latest skills and techniques.

Colin is very friendly, and approachable and is happy to answer any questions you may have about dentures.

Outside of work, Colin loves to spend as much time as possible with his two gorgeous children Oscar and Lottie, his amazing wife Victoria and his buddy, a 7-year-old black Labrador called Penny. Colin loves being outdoors as much as possible hence sailing, walking, camping in the Peak District and being an obsessed golfer are all important passions.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
