Dental surgeon Toby Gilmore provides dedicated family dentistry in Chard. After training at Kings College, London, and offering general dentistry in Suffolk, Brighton and Australia, Toby settled in Somerset. For over twenty years he has offered reliable continuity of care to families in the region.
Toby’s career as a general dentist is based on his philosophy that patients should be able to access reasonably priced dental care to enjoy a comfortable mouth.
Toby welcomes young patients. His priority, particularly for the very tiny ones, is to avoid giving them negative experiences which could impact on them for life. It’s important that children don’t mind attending the dentist, now and in future.
In a recent review of the practice, a patient wrote: “Toby Gilmore is simply the best.”
Adult patients appreciate that Toby restores teeth for patients who may not have visited the dentist regularly. There’s no need to feel embarrassed if you haven’t been to the dentist for a while. Toby will help you feel at ease. During an initial assessment, Toby will work out a treatment plan with you to make your mouth comfortable again. Most importantly, Toby is clear about what you can expect from the treatment, how many dental appointments you will need, as well as the cost. Working in coordination with one of the practice’s hygienists, Toby will ensure that any gum concerns are identified and treated. He also arms patients with the knowledge and techniques needed to maintain a more comfortable mouth.
In his spare time, Toby enjoys sculpting both wood and stone, enjoying the challenge of smoothing and polishing his work to a perfect finish. Toby’s talent, as an artist and a dentist, is in his attention to detail.
A role model for the advantages of making healthy choices, Toby is a keen cyclist. He regularly joins the 1st Chard Wheelers around the lanes of Somerset. He also enjoys cooking and music.
Recent reviews of the practice help to give a clear sense of the loyalty to the practice that Toby inspires.
“I have been a patient at this practice for over 35 years. Toby Gilmore has been my dentist for many years now and I have always been very happy with the treatment I have received from him and the staff. On my last visit Toby repaired a crown which had become wobbly! He did an excellent job and I can now eat properly again without the fear of it falling out! I would certainly recommend this caring and efficient practice to others.”
“I have been to this practice for over 40 years and have always been completely satisfied with my treatment. Very friendly and welcoming staff. My dentist Toby and hygienist Marissa are excellent in their job keeping my teeth in good order.”
“I have been a patient of Mr. Gilmore for many years and have always appreciated his advice and treatment. He is very good at putting people at their ease.”
“Always happy. Toby has looked after me for many years, always explains the work that needs to be done and the options. I feel very happy with his treatment.”
