  • Mark V Willings

    Mark V Willings


    Mark is Director of the very successful Horbury Dental Implant Clinic and he has a huge wealth of experience on Dental Implants & Dental Implant systems; not only on how these can be used to restore a patient’s ability to chew and function, but also how they can be used to achieve the best results, in many cases restoring dignity and confidence.

    Mark is from a family of dentists and indeed he is himself the fourth generation in his family; his great grandfather practiced in Leeds and his grandfather, grandmother and father all practiced in Horbury, Wakefield. Mark is married to Kate and they have two children, Harriet and Alexandra. Harriet is currently studying Dentistry at Newcastle University and Alex is currently studying Philosophy at the University of Exeter. Outside of dentistry, Mark enjoys cycling, and is an extremely keen road cyclist. He has completed a number of challenges over the last few years including Lands’ End to John O’Groats. His other hobbies include going to the gym to maintain his fitness for his cycling endeavours. He also enjoys shooting and if the time allows, he is also keen on travel. Mark and Kate are also involved in a great deal of fund raising and are the Ambassadors of the Wooden Spoon children’s charity, who help fund projects to improve the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children.
