Dr John Fleming
Principal Dental Surgeon
BDS 1997 MJDF RCS Eng 2008
Country of issue: United Kingdom
GDC registration number: 73585

I graduated from Manchester University in 1997 and I joined Hob Hey Dental Centre in 1998 as an associate. I became a joint principal in 2002 and sole principal in 2013. Having been at the practice for such a long time I have got to know my patients very well and it is a pleasure to treat them. I feel it is vital that patients are educated correctly how to care for their teeth and we provide up to date evidence based preventative advice. I enjoy cosmetic dentistry and I am confident in providing crowns, bridges, veneers and tooth whitening. I can also straighten teeth using the FASTBRACES and INVISALIGN orthodontic systems. .

I am a keen learner and I frequently attend courses for my continuing professional development. I am considering studying for the Diploma in Restorative Dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons in London if I can find the time!

I also work for the British Dental Association and I assess dental practices who are members of their Good Practice Scheme. I am married to Vicky and we have three boys, Jake, Leo and Albie. If I have any spare time I enjoy gardening and training at the gym. I play bass guitar, acoustic guitar, drums and piano and I also occasionally sing in a band. I work Tuesday to Friday and I provide a late evening session on a Wednesday and a Thursday evening.

I have worked in NHS and private practice and I have also worked at Newchurch Hospital treating patients with learning difficulties. This was both challenging and rewarding.

I have been at Hob Hey since 1989 and I have always enjoyed my job very much. Having contact with patients I have got to know over a number of years is a great plus for me. I enjoy continuing my professional development and I find myself on more and more courses.

I live locally with my husband Jim and two grown up children. We still enjoy doing things as a family especially walking our much loved cocker spaniel Jaffa. I also love reading and I have recently attended a French course at night school. I work Tuesday and Wednesday.
