Meet the Team

Mark and Adam took over the practice in 2017, changing the name to Burnside Dental Care. They were keen to maintain the high standards of care that the practice was known for but felt it could improve upon the services offered and modernising the delivery of care; adding new and innovative treatment options such as adult orthodontics and implant treatments. All of our staff possess a wealth of experience and have been helping our patients, with a smile on their face, for a combined 70 years or so! They are committed to serving the people of Burnside and beyond and do so with professionalism and the warmest of welcomes.


Adam Gilmartin BDS GDC 190949

I am a partner at Burnside Dental care. I graduated from the University of Dundee with commendation in 2010. I have a broad range of experience and have held posts in Perth and in Stirling before moving further west to start in Burnside Dental Care. My main areas of interest lie in crown and bridge work and in short term adult orthodontics. I trained with the centre of implant dentistry on the ultimate implant restorative course. and I'm pleased to be able to offer implant restoration services to the practice. I like to keep up to date with the latest innovations in dentistry and I am committed to continuing my professional learning throughout my career. I also  enjoy rugby, football and spending time with my wife and four small children.
