Grimsby Dentist to Retire After 28 Years
A dentist from Grimsby is preparing to retire after 28 years of service.
John Cottingham has confirmed that he will leave Harris and Hoyle Dental Practice, located on Dudley Street Grimsby, after 28 years of service.
John qualified from Guy’s Hospital Dental School, London in 1973 and worked at hospitals across the country before meeting Anthony Hoyle and opening Cottingham and Hoyle Dental Practice in 1984. John stepped down from his position as partner in 2004 and has worked as an associate dentist at Harris and Hoyle ever since.
John has a special interest and orthodontics and he regularly tutors and trains young dentists, a role that he will continue once he has retired from the practice. John will keep his position as regional director of the dental foundation training, which will involve regular trips to Sheffield.
John said that he has had a wonderful time at the practice and gained a huge amount from being able to provide a valuable service to local people. He added that he was happy to be leaving the practice in the capable hands of Anthony Hoyle and Julia Harris. Anthony is planning to step down from his position as partner in August and will be replaced by Julia’s husband, Sean.
Julia Harris described John as an “inspiration” after he took her on as a trainee and she said that she has never looked back. John will be missed by patients and staff alike but he is planning to pop in and say hello regularly.
