And If You Feel Any Pain – Why Dr Skimming Gives You Your Money Back!
Introducing the next generation of Glasgow’s no pain dentists…
Dr Mark Skimming took the brave decision to dramatically cut his wage early in his career to complete a Masters Degree in Restorative Dentistry.
This was to feed his passion to be the absolute best he can be!
And at just 27 years old he became the UK’s youngest ever dentist to receive this advanced qualification. Why did he choose a career in dentistry?
Because of the hands on approach of directly influencing the lives of his patients. Maybe it was because his dad was a Glasgow painter and decorator that he wanted to work in smaller spaces. But combined with the artistic nature of dentistry… this is the profession he has dramatically excelled in.
“After an unrealistic wish to play football for the rest of my days, I decided I wanted to pursue a medical and health care profession where it was achievable to be my own boss and carry out treatment in the ways I felt were most appropriate.”
Working in NHS only dentistry, Mark wasn’t happy with the length of time he got to spend with patients and so decided to open up his dental practice treating private and NHS patients which is located in an old Victorian building.
Mark is a member of the “Association of Dental Implantology” and is the publisher of three Guides including, ‘How Glasgow Women Can Now Say Goodbye to Their Twisted, Crooked and Uneven Teeth’, and ‘How To End Missing Teeth And Denture Anguish’.
Mark has also written the book “Why I Love My Dentist More Than My Valentines Chocolates”, which focuses on his pain free dentistry techniques.

Dr Skimming is a passionate guitar player, snow boarder and football player.
Mark’s extreme focus on YOU, rather than WE the dentist has also led to being featured in the media and he recently won an award for the ‘Provision of Extreme Customer Service’ by the Life Transformational Dentistry Group.
Mark is married to Claire, and has two young children. He enjoys keeping fit, sailing, and taking his kids swimming.
Mark and his practice have won “Best Practice Scotland & Northern Ireland” and “Best Patient Care Scotland & Northern Ireland” at the Dentistry Awards, along with “Best Patient Care North” at the Private Dentistry Awards. In addition to this Mark was also awarded the title of “Best Young Dentist” in 2012 award for the Scottish region and received a Highly Commended mention for Best Practice.
Mark also enjoys snowboarding and weight training and likes to spend his holidays in California, Canada or Cyprus.
“I believe honesty and knowledge are the most important attributes of a good dentist,” added Mark, “whilst poor communication skills and speaking in jargon terms are the most common reason why I find people leave their existing practice to visit us.”
Right on your very own doorstep from his Dentistry On The Square clinic in Glasgow, Mark integrates conventional medical dentistry with his Dr Skimming ‘Pain Free’ Method of Dentistry.
