Meet the Team

Dr Grant McAree

BDS (Dundee) BSc Hons

Dr Grant McAree adopts a preventative, conservative approach to treatment, in favour of minimally invasive techniques whenever clinically possible, at no compromise to the aesthetic result.  

A firm advocate of revolutionary Teeth Straightening systems, Dr Grant McAree’s main concern is to protect and conserve as much of the natural tooth structure for as long as possible. Never opting for a quick-fix, destructive solution so often seen in extreme makeover-type programmes and magazine articles, Dr Grant McAree’s approach means teeth rarely need to be removed.

“I love my job – every case is different and after 15 years in practice, I am happy to say my main source of new business is word-of-mouth recommendations. It is so satisfying to see how the treatment – big or small – can positively impact the patients life, well-being or happiness – something I still get great joy from, even after all these years in dentistry.”

I graduated from dental school in 1997. My goal was to set up a dental practice with a difference. The first Whyte House Dental Surgery stared in Plymouth in 2001. Over a 5 year period we built a 30 strong team, dedicated to giving patients the choice of affordable dentistry as well as the more expensive cosmetic options.

Over the years we have built a number of surgeries with this ethos – patients want to have the choice. The introduction of the “Affordable Dentistry” to our fee structure was met with an over whelming response. On average we are now expanding to cope with the 100 new patients a month we are registering, ensure customer care is our number one priority.

I have a young family and enjoy the great outdoors. You can find me enjoying the surf around Devon as well as all the other water sports on offer. I also enjoy watching my son’s plays and my daughter’s netball games. When I have a quiet moment my wife and I like nothing better than a good British drama on the television.
