Mike Cottrell grew up in Walsall in the West Midlands and as he had not acquired the wanderlust at this point decided to study dentistry locally at the Dental School in Birmingham. As it turned out this was a very smart move as not only was the BDS one of the best dental schools in the UK he graduated with a BDS and he met future wife and business partner Kathy Cottrell what a hat trick!
Prior to Parkway Dentalcare Mike was a dentist in the Royal Navy and then seconded to the Royal Marines for five years where he enjoyed trips to Norway, Scotland and Cornwall before relocating to Gosport for his last posting after which he became an Associate Dentist in an established well-regarded practice in Gosport.
In 1992 Mike bought Parkway Dentalcare where he is now owner and principal dentist.
Although sometimes challenging Mike enjoys looking after his patients’ oral health and wellbeing and loves being part of a team who share his aspirations for providing quality NHS dental care to all.
Like Kathy, Mike believes that a good life-work balance is best for all including patients so he enjoys a wide range of sport and leisure activities including golf, squash, cycling and walking when he’s not spending time relaxing with the family at their home in nearby Gosport.
‘’What I think truly sets Parkway Dentalcare apart from many other practices is that not only do we offer an all-inclusive service to a wide range of patients the staff really do care’’
