The Team At Dunkeld

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.
