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 5 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. Following this, in March 2018, he purchased two further existing dental practices in Crieff and Auchterarder, to take the total number of Perthshire practices in the Infinityblu group to 4, then most recently, in February 2020, purchased a further dental practice in Alyth near Blairgowrie to bring the total number of practices to 5.

Infinityblu now employs over 60 team members throughout the practices, with dental care provided by the 12 Dentists, 2 Hygienists and 3 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 17 year’s experience in dental implantology, and devotes a substantial amount of his clinical time to offering a full in-house dental implant service in all five practices. He is also a member of the International Team for Implantology.

Most recently, Chris has invested a 6 figure sum and introduced CBCT (Cone beam 3D scanning technology) for safer implant planning, digital scanners 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.

Dental Therapist

BSc Dip Dent Hygiene/Therapy | GDC Number: 185617

I have been practising dental therapy and dental hygiene since graduating in 2010 from Dundee University. I work in various areas in Scotland and I have been in Crieff since 2011. My favourite aspect of providing dental care is the satisfaction when helping patients achieve improved dental health, whether it being from improving gum health from periodontal disease or helping my patients, adults and children, to achieve and maintain the confident smiles.

Apart from working, I enjoy spending time with my family, DIY home improvements, and cooking various types of food (always love a barbeque).

Practice Manager & Registered Dental Nurse

GDC Number: 264214

Originally qualified as an HND Complementary Therapist involving different aspects of massage, reflexology and aromatherapy, I loved attending to clients and their different medical needs and therapies.

Looking to further enhance my qualifications, I successfully joined a dental practice in 2014 as a trainee dental nurse; this gave me the opportunity to further develop my learning.

Becoming a qualified dental nurse in 2015, I thrived on learning new treatments and supporting patients within their dental treatment.

Working within such a friendly environment with great team members makes a supportive practice environment.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my partner, 8 year old daughter Jasmine and family. Weekends are filled with walking our two dogs, swimming and many other outdoor activities.
