The Team At Pitlochry

Chris Barrowman

Chris Barrowman

Principal dentist

BDS Dund 2001 | GDC Number: 79642

Since graduating in 2001, Chris has continued to feed his passion for Dentistry. In 2007, he opened the Pitlochry based Infinityblu Dental Care & Implant Clinic as a squat practice, winning multiple practice awards, including Chris himself winning Best Young Dentist in Scotland at the UK Dentistry awards in 2013.

Over the following years, the Pitlochry practice and team has grown the practice from a single dental chair to a three surgery multi-displine practice with 6 dentists, 2 therapists and hygienist.

Following from this, in early 2017, Chris launched, again from start-up, a second two surgery practice, this time in Dunkeld. In March 2018, he purchased two further existing dental practices in Crieff and Auchterarder, and February 2020, purchased an existing dental practice in Alyth near Blairgowrie to bring the total number of practices to 5. Further growth in Infinityblu has been the acquisition of a 3-surgery practice in Duns, Scottish Borders, and a 4-surgery practice in Callander, Stirlingshire.

Infinityblu now employs over 100 team members throughout the 7 practices, with dental care provided by over 20 Dentists, and 5 Hygienists/Dental Therapists.

Chris has developed a customer focused service approach to the dental care at Infinityblu. The aim being to ensure the highest standard of dentistry is provided, that patient's needs are listened to, and that all patients are offered the full range of treatment options to enable them to make an educated decision to the treatment best for the patient.

He has over 20 years’ experience in dental implantology and devotes all his clinical time to offering a full in-house dental implant service over all the practices. Chris has recently shifted his implantology focus onto the revolutionary single day Chrome GUIDED smile system which enables Chris to treat patients by giving them a row of fixed teeth in a SINGLE VISIT, by removing failing teeth, placing a row of implants, and fitting fixed bridgework.

Most recently, Chris has invested substantially in the digital side of dentistry, and introducing a number of CBCT (Cone beam 3D scanning technology) for safer implant planning, digital scanners in multiple practices, and in-house milling units to the Pitlochry practice, enabling the Dentists to offer and fit in-house same day crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays, which can be milled and fitted with incredible accuracy and fit, all in one visit, thereby, eliminating the need for patients to have impressions, temporaries or multiple visits over a period of weeks to have lab work fitted.

Outside work, Chris has a passion in training for ultra-running and triathlons and spending his time with his three children and family.

Seb Mylchreest

Dentist

BDS MDFS RCPSG(Glasg) PGCert Rest Dent RCS(Eng).

GDC Number: 257912

My name is Sebastian Mylchreest and I am one of the Dentist’s here at Infinityblu. I grew up in Edinburgh before moving to Dundee for university. Both at school and at university my passions were football and playing a variety of instruments for bands and orchestras. My hobbies now include golf, travelling and keeping our overweight cat on a diet! My parents still live in Edinburgh whilst my sister works in Leeds for a fantastic charity.

After graduating from Dundee university with distinction nearly 10 years ago I worked first in Dundee and recently in St Andrews. I’ve completed the prestigious Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry with the Royal College of Surgeons of England, gained a certificate in periodontal surgery through Perioacademy and am a member of the Association of Dental Implants and the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Glasgow.

Having worked in a private practice for most of my career and being part of two teams that have won prizes for ‘Best Digital Dental Practice’ in Scotland, my aim is to provide you with the very best that dentistry can offer, in the most comfortable and predictable way, often showing you before we’ve started what the end result will be. All of this is in efforts to keep you firmly in control of your treatment with us.

Testimonials from happy patients:

“I found the whole visit pleasant, professionally excellent and thoroughly to be recommended. I was very impressed by the manner of Sebastian, my dentist, and his ability to relate to my own needs and wishes.”

“Regular patient for many years. Fully endorse excellent high quality patient-oriented service. Latest visit again fulfills, exceeds expectations. I'm a retired medic and can judge the skill with which Seb works. Wouldn't dream of going elsewhere.”

“For someone who quite frankly has a phobia of dentists Sebastian puts you at ease and the (if this is possible) most pain free experience. Highly recommended.”

“Seb made me feel really comfortable and picked up things that no other dentists have previously. He has gone above and beyond so far to help me out with all my dental needs. Would 100% recommend”

Ross Quigley

Ross Quigley

Dental Therapist

GDC Number: 310301

Hi, my name is Ross and I am a recently qualified Dental Therapist.

My passion for dentistry started from a young age after my sister was involved in a cycling accident and suffered from dental trauma. After many trips to the Dundee dental hospital throughout my childhood, I grew very fond of the dental environment, and decided it was a career a wished to pursue.

Since then I attended Glasgow Caledonian University, and achieved a Bachelors Degree in Oral Health Sciences. This course taught me the knowledge and skills required to provide the best possible care for my patients.

Other than dentistry, my biggest passion is music. I started playing violin from a very young age, and since I have learned guitar and piano too. If it wasn't for dentistry, my dream was to become a music producer!

Hobbies of mine include: golfing, football and festivals!

I am very looking forward to beginning my journey at InfinityBlu!

The Team At Crieff

Chris Barrowman

Chris Barrowman

Principal dentist

BDS Dund 2001 | GDC Number: 79642

Since graduating in 2001, Chris has continued to feed his passion for Dentistry. In 2007, he opened the Pitlochry based Infinityblu Dental Care & Implant Clinic as a squat practice, winning multiple practice awards, including Chris himself winning Best Young Dentist in Scotland at the UK Dentistry awards in 2013.

Over the following years, the Pitlochry practice and team has grown the practice from a single dental chair to a three surgery multi-displine practice with 6 dentists, 2 therapists and hygienist.

Following from this, in early 2017, Chris launched, again from start-up, a second two surgery practice, this time in Dunkeld. In March 2018, he purchased two further existing dental practices in Crieff and Auchterarder, and February 2020, purchased an existing dental practice in Alyth near Blairgowrie to bring the total number of practices to 5. Further growth in Infinityblu has been the acquisition of a 3-surgery practice in Duns, Scottish Borders, and a 4-surgery practice in Callander, Stirlingshire.

Infinityblu now employs over 100 team members throughout the 7 practices, with dental care provided by over 20 Dentists, and 5 Hygienists/Dental Therapists.

Chris has developed a customer focused service approach to the dental care at Infinityblu. The aim being to ensure the highest standard of dentistry is provided, that patient's needs are listened to, and that all patients are offered the full range of treatment options to enable them to make an educated decision to the treatment best for the patient.

He has over 20 years’ experience in dental implantology and devotes all his clinical time to offering a full in-house dental implant service over all the practices. Chris has recently shifted his implantology focus onto the revolutionary single day Chrome GUIDED smile system which enables Chris to treat patients by giving them a row of fixed teeth in a SINGLE VISIT, by removing failing teeth, placing a row of implants, and fitting fixed bridgework.

Most recently, Chris has invested substantially in the digital side of dentistry, and introducing a number of CBCT (Cone beam 3D scanning technology) for safer implant planning, digital scanners in multiple practices, and in-house milling units to the Pitlochry practice, enabling the Dentists to offer and fit in-house same day crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays, which can be milled and fitted with incredible accuracy and fit, all in one visit, thereby, eliminating the need for patients to have impressions, temporaries or multiple visits over a period of weeks to have lab work fitted.

Outside work, Chris has a passion in training for ultra-running and triathlons and spending his time with his three children and family.

Since graduating in 2001, Chris has continued to feed his passion for Dentistry. In 2007, he opened the Pitlochry based Infinityblu Dental Care & Implant Clinic as a squat practice, winning multiple practice awards, including Chris himself winning Best Young Dentist in Scotland at the UK Dentistry awards in 2013.

Over the following years, the Pitlochry practice and team has grown the practice from a single dental chair to a three surgery multi-displine practice with 6 dentists, 2 therapists and hygienist.

Following from this, in early 2017, Chris launched, again from start-up, a second two surgery practice, this time in Dunkeld. In March 2018, he purchased two further existing dental practices in Crieff and Auchterarder, and February 2020, purchased an existing dental practice in Alyth near Blairgowrie to bring the total number of practices to 5. Further growth in Infinityblu has been the acquisition of a 3-surgery practice in Duns, Scottish Borders, and a 4-surgery practice in Callander, Stirlingshire.

Infinityblu now employs over 100 team members throughout the 7 practices, with dental care provided by over 20 Dentists, and 5 Hygienists/Dental Therapists.

She has been working in Scotland ever since. Yvonne owned our practice in Callander for five years but decided to focus solely on dentistry again and now works as dental associate.

She provides all fields of dentistry but enjoys focusing on the less invasive options to give her patients a long term functional and comfortable healthy mouth.

Yvonne employs the latest technologies using intraoral scanners and digital dentistry to provide crown and bridge work which is high in its accuracy.

She is a SmileFast provider which is a new development in digital smile design, trial smile preview and smile makeovers using composite bonding or ceramics.

Yvonne’s particular interest lies in Invisalign which uses clear removable aligners to help relieve crowding, misalignment or spacing of teeth in adults and teenagers as an alternative to fixed braces.

Invisalign can be used as stand-alone treatment to improve the position of your teeth or combined with composite bonding or SmileFast to enhance the aesthetic outcome.

Moving teeth and making them straighter has not only aesthetic purpose but can improve your overall oral health. Moving your teeth out of less favourable positions, will make them easier to clean and therefore can reduce the risk of gum disease and caries. Sometimes teeth can be poorly positioned and are at risk of increased wear or chipping. Moving these teeth into a more harmonic position can keep them stronger and help improve your overall bite.

Yvonne is a member of the BSDSM (British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine) and provides various types of Antisnoring and/or Sleep Apnoea appliances.

In her free time Yvonne plays the fiddle and enjoys hiking and exploring the hills.

In 2007, he opened the Pitlochry based Infinityblu Dental Care & Implant Clinic as a squat practice, winning multiple practice awards, including Chris himself winning Best Young Dentist in Scotland at the UK Dentistry awards in 2013.

Over the following years, the Pitlochry practice and team has grown the practice from a single dental chair to a three surgery multi-displine practice with 6 dentists, 2 therapists and hygienist.

Following from this, in early 2017, Chris launched, again from start-up, a second two surgery practice, this time in Dunkeld. In March 2018, he purchased two further existing dental practices in Crieff and Auchterarder, and February 2020, purchased an existing dental practice in Alyth near Blairgowrie to bring the total number of practices to 5. Further growth in Infinityblu has been the acquisition of a 3-surgery practice in Duns, Scottish Borders, and a 4-surgery practice in Callander, Stirlingshire.

Infinityblu now employs over 100 team members throughout the 7 practices, with dental care provided by over 20 Dentists, and 5 Hygienists/Dental Therapists.

Chris has developed a customer focused service approach to the dental care at Infinityblu. The aim being to ensure the highest standard of dentistry is provided, that patient's needs are listened to, and that all patients are offered the full range of treatment options to enable them to make an educated decision to the treatment best for the patient.

He has over 20 years’ experience in dental implantology and devotes all his clinical time to offering a full in-house dental implant service over all the practices. Chris has recently shifted his implantology focus onto the revolutionary single day Chrome GUIDED smile system which enables Chris to treat patients by giving them a row of fixed teeth in a SINGLE VISIT, by removing failing teeth, placing a row of implants, and fitting fixed bridgework.

Most recently, Chris has invested substantially in the digital side of dentistry, and introducing a number of CBCT (Cone beam 3D scanning technology) for safer implant planning, digital scanners in multiple practices, and in-house milling units to the Pitlochry practice, enabling the Dentists to offer and fit in-house same day crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays, which can be milled and fitted with incredible accuracy and fit, all in one visit, thereby, eliminating the need for patients to have impressions, temporaries or multiple visits over a period of weeks to have lab work fitted.

Dentist

BDS MDFS RCPSG(Glasg) PGCert Rest Dent RCS(Eng).

GDC No: 257912

My name is Sebastian Mylchreest and I am one of the Dentist’s here at Infinityblu. I grew up in Edinburgh before moving to Dundee for university. Both at school and at university my passions were football and playing a variety of instruments for bands and orchestras. My hobbies now include golf, travelling and keeping our overweight cat on a diet! My parents still live in Edinburgh whilst my sister works in Leeds for a fantastic charity.

After graduating from Dundee university with distinction nearly 10 years ago I worked first in Dundee and recently in St Andrews. I’ve completed the prestigious Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry with the Royal College of Surgeons of England, gained a certificate in periodontal surgery through Perioacademy and am a member of the Association of Dental Implants and the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Glasgow.

Having worked in a private practice for most of my career and being part of two teams that have won prizes for ‘Best Digital Dental Practice’ in Scotland, my aim is to provide you with the very best that dentistry can offer, in the most comfortable and predictable way, often showing you before we’ve started what the end result will be. All of this is in efforts to keep you firmly in control of your treatment with us.

Testimonials from happy patients:

“I found the whole visit pleasant, professionally excellent and thoroughly to be recommended. I was very impressed by the manner of Sebastian, my dentist, and his ability to relate to my own needs and wishes.”

“Regular patient for many years. Fully endorse excellent high quality patient-oriented service. Latest visit again fulfills, exceeds expectations. I'm a retired medic and can judge the skill with which Seb works. Wouldn't dream of going elsewhere.”

“For someone who quite frankly has a phobia of dentists Sebastian puts you at ease and the (if this is possible) most pain free experience. Highly recommended.”

“Seb made me feel really comfortable and picked up things that no other dentists have previously. He has gone above and beyond so far to help me out with all my dental needs. Would 100% recommend”

Most recently, Chris has invested substantially in the digital side of dentistry, and introducing a number of CBCT (Cone beam 3D scanning technology) for safer implant planning, digital scanners in multiple practices, and in-house milling units to the Pitlochry practice, enabling the Dentists to offer and fit in-house same day crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays, which can be milled and fitted with incredible accuracy and fit, all in one visit, thereby, eliminating the need for patients to have impressions, temporaries or multiple visits over a period of weeks to have lab work fitted.

Outside work, Chris has a passion in training for ultra-running and triathlons and spending his time with his three children and family.

Seb Mylchreest

Dentist

BDS MDFS RCPSG(Glasg) PGCert Rest Dent RCS(Eng).

GDC Number: 257912

My name is Sebastian Mylchreest and I am one of the Dentist’s here at Infinityblu. I grew up in Edinburgh before moving to Dundee for university. Both at school and at university my passions were football and playing a variety of instruments for bands and orchestras. My hobbies now include golf, travelling and keeping our overweight cat on a diet! My parents still live in Edinburgh whilst my sister works in Leeds for a fantastic charity.

After graduating from Dundee university with distinction nearly 10 years ago I worked first in Dundee and recently in St Andrews. I’ve completed the prestigious Postgraduate Certificate in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry with the Royal College of Surgeons of England, gained a certificate in periodontal surgery through Perioacademy and am a member of the Association of Dental Implants and the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Glasgow.

Having worked in a private practice for most of my career and being part of two teams that have won prizes for ‘Best Digital Dental Practice’ in Scotland, my aim is to provide you with the very best that dentistry can offer, in the most comfortable and predictable way, often showing you before we’ve started what the end result will be. All of this is in efforts to keep you firmly in control of your treatment with us.

Testimonials from happy patients:

“I found the whole visit pleasant, professionally excellent and thoroughly to be recommended. I was very impressed by the manner of Sebastian, my dentist, and his ability to relate to my own needs and wishes.”

“Regular patient for many years. Fully endorse excellent high quality patient-oriented service. Latest visit again fulfills, exceeds expectations. I'm a retired medic and can judge the skill with which Seb works. Wouldn't dream of going elsewhere.”

“For someone who quite frankly has a phobia of dentists Sebastian puts you at ease and the (if this is possible) most pain free experience. Highly recommended.”

“Seb made me feel really comfortable and picked up things that no other dentists have previously. He has gone above and beyond so far to help me out with all my dental needs. Would 100% recommend”
