|Dr Malcolm Downing BChD
GDC No. 43126
Malcolm qualified at Leeds University Dental School and has stayed and lived in the Halifax area for long enough to be now naturalised! He owned and ran a single handed private practice in Halifax until retiring and selling the practice in 2004.
Returned to part time work in 2006 on realising how much he missed the patient contact and the satisfaction of a job well done. Now combines part time practice at Greenside with varied family and social life within which Grandchildren and sport features heavily. Enjoys spending time relaxing, walking, golfing in the Lake District where interests in wildlife and photography give him plenty of scope.
He cannot imagine not working in his current capacity at Greenside, where hopefully his little bit of experience can help the team deliver a very friendly effective Dental Care Service.
