Born and schooled in Glasgow, Dr George Campbell went on to study Dentistry at Edinburgh University. After graduation he completed a short service as a Captain in the British Army. He then completed his fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Glasgow with various posts in oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Following on from this he moved on to London and obtained his MSc, spending three years as the Registrar in Orthodontics at the very prestigious Guy’s Hospital. As well as this he earned his MOrth in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. George worked as a consultant in Orthodontics in one of the hospitals near London for a year, before opening his own practice in East Kilbride, Scotland in 1999.
The business grew from strength to strength and expanded to acquire six more practices around Scotland. These include:
- Queen’s Park (previously Love and Hughes)
Throughout his career, including those in training at the moment, George has trained 11 orthodontic therapists and has given them the opportunity to develop both their academic skills and career. He regularly supports registrars who are training to become orthodontists with sessions held at Guys Hospital in London. This includes new patient clinics for patients who are sent from London and the South East.
George is an active member of the World Federation of Orthodontists, the British and European Orthodontic Societies and an International member of the American Orthodontists Society, which he attends every year for continual professional development, and he is also included in the Who’s Who of Dentistry. His passion for academics has led him to become an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh.

How can Dr George Campbell help you?
Orthodontic treatment has evolved considerably over the years, and it is no longer about wearing a lot of metal in your mouth. Nowadays there are many different types of braces to choose from that are smaller, more comfortable to wear and very efficient in aligning your teeth. George Campbell orthodontist can help you select the right braces to suit your lifestyle. The different braces you can choose from are:
Invisalign uses a treatment plan of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into position. They’re removable and practically invisible to those around you, which is what makes them a popular choice for many adults.
Fixed metal braces
Fixed metal braces use a combination of metal brackets, archwires, and elastic bands (ligatures) to straighten your teeth. Even though they are the original style of brace, advancements in orthodontic treatment means the brackets are now considerably smaller, less chunky, and easier to wear.
Ceramic braces are similar to normal braces with the main difference being the brackets are made from ceramic material and are designed to be the same colour as your teeth so they’re less visible. They are also smoother and stronger than traditional braces.
Self-ligating braces use brackets that have a sliding mechanism that allows for the archwire to move in response to your teeth. This means they operate with a lot less friction and you don’t need elastic bands like traditional braces.
Lingual braces are attached to the back surface of your teeth, meaning there is less risk of decalcification as well as the visually aesthetic benefits.
George and his team are passionate and committed to providing the highest standard of orthodontic treatment and discreet braces to patients in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. Contact one of the practices today to book an appointment with George Campbell.
