Philip Garbutt BDS

Philip Garbutt BDS - GDC 61145


Philip graduated from Newcastle upon Tyne University in 1986. After gaining 5 years experience in a large group practice in Coventry Philip decided to branch out on his own. After acquiring Brewood Dental Practice from the retiring dentist the practice's reputation for its professional and caring approach has led to the number of patients quadrupling in the 24 years Philip has been established.

Although tinged with sadness having to leave Brewood village Philip is thrilled to continue to provide all existing and new patients with the same high standard of care in this wonderful new location.

Philip is a keen photographer and has provided many of the photographs to be found in the practice and on this website.
