Our Practice Story

Coulthard Sullivan Dental Practice are proud to be a family run, private dental practice based in the heart of Wilmslow. The practice is celebrating offering care for 40 years in 2024!

Our ethos is to treat our patients how we would want our family to be treated. That is why, when Professor Paul Coulthard first worked at the practice with Dr John Sullivan, 30 years ago, he decided to register his young family as patients. Paul Coulthard is now Professor in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dean at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, and a Specialist in Oral Surgery at Harley Street. 


Dr Francesca Coulthard has since followed in her father and John’s footsteps. Dr Francesca graduated from Manchester Dental School in 2018 and has continued her training and education becoming a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons and undertaking a Diploma in Aesthetic and Restorative dentistry. Francesca and Paul were delighted when the opportunity arose, to take on ownership of the practice to ensure continuity of great care, as provided by John over 30 years.  

Coulthard Sullivan is proud to offer excellent oral care to the people of Cheshire and South Manchester.
