Mike Brindle is the founder of Fylde Dental Clinic. In 1977 he qualified as a dental technician and subsequently gained advanced qualifications in orthodontics, crown and bridge, and denture construction. In 1979 he opened his own dental laboratory, Northern Orthodontics, doing dental work for dentists throughout the country. In 2007 Mike took the next major step in his career and became a CDT (clinical dental technician), meaning that he would be able then to see and treat patients in his own clinic.
After two years of study with the George Brown College of Toronto, a KSS Deanery course in Kent, and the successful completion of examinations by the Royal College of Surgeons, in 2009 Mike opened the Fylde Dental Clinic in St. Anne's where he personally constructs and fits dentures directly to the public. In 2017, Mike became president of the BACDT (British Association of Clinical Dental Technicians).
In his leisure time, Mike enjoys flying light aircraft, and he has had his Private Pilot's Licence for over 30 years.
