About Dr David GatesGDC number: 63978
As I am sure you know, I don't spend 24 hours a day being a dentist. Every Tuesday night, I leave the practice and head for a nearby football pitch to play five aside football with a few friends (actually we don’t mind who plays as long as we have enough people for a team). We all wear the colours of our club’s football team and after the match wax lyrical about our skills to anyone who will listen.
My other great love (apart from my wife and two gorgeous daughters) is music. I am quite sure I must have asked many of you what type of music you listen to. I have quite an eclectic taste as you may have noticed from the varying selection of music that has been played at the practice from time to time.
I really enjoy the surf and sand and this is our first port of call as a family whenever the weather allows. We have been known to be sitting on Bournemouth beach [a patient tipped me off on the best one to go to] in the depths of winter throwing a frisbee, drinking a latte and enjoying a little of the warm winter sunshine.”
