Meet the Team

David J McCallum B.D.S.

Principle Dentist

Graduated from Glasgow University in 1993. After a short time working in Manchester I headed back to Scotland and worked in Practices in East Kilbride and Glasgow before setting up the Kirkshaws Practice in 2007.

I spent two years studying at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute in London on all aspects of Restorative Dentistry and specialised on Complete Dental Construction.

Outside of dentistry my main interests are spending time with my two children and my two dogs Murphy and Louis. I am also an avid reader with particular interest in history and philosophy.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry from Cosmetic Reconstruction to Oral Surgery.

Karen Duncan, Practice Manager - GDC Regn: 142509

I have been working as a dental nurse for 11 years. I started training in 2002, attending Coatbridge College until 2003. In 2005 I received my National Certificate in Dental Nursing. I started working in Kirkshaws Dental Practice soon after we opened in 2006.

I enjoy keeping up to date with my continual development training, I have a special interest in radiography and sedation.

I love being a dental nurse, every day is different from the next. We have great patients and it's been a pleasure being part of their lives.

Outside work I enjoy going to the cinema, socializing with friends and family. I love to travel, I recently fulfilled one of my dreams and drove across America on 'Route 66'. I also enjoy live music.
