Helping the Chernobyl Children 2014

Iain Morrison, the new principle of Newgate Dental Solutions, recently returned to Northumberland after some time away to take over the practice. He said: “Once I found out about the charity, I knew we had to help. We don’t realise how lucky we are in the UK having access to healthcare and dental treatment when we need it, people from other countries are not so fortunate. “I’m glad we managed to treat all the children with all the chaos going on in the practice.” He was referring to the full modernisation currently taking place.

Morocco Trip 2012

In 2012 Dr Iain Morrison and a team of 14 clinical staff took part in a trip to Morocco. They visited a isolated fishing village with no dentists , a high sugar diet , no toothbrushes and no fluoride tooth paste.
