Welcome to Glassby Dental Practice a family business since 1978.

Situated at 3 Kingston Square Hull, the Glassby Dental Surgery is steeped in history being the former home of the famous dressmaker Madame Clapham, who set up business in 1887.

John and Elaine Glassby, husband and wife, eventually bought the building in 1978. They set about restoring the property to its former glory discovering, retaining and improving its many period features. The aim was to create a dental practice with an environment that was welcoming and relaxing.

Jonathan, John and Elaine’s son, was very much part of the practice as a child and always had an interest in dentistry. To their delight Jonathan qualified as a dentist himself with the aim of being a skilled, kind and caring practitioner just like his father.

It is a pleasure to be a patient at this highly up-to-date practice. The quality of service is excellent with a full explanation given for any treatment that may be required. This is always provided within a relaxed, thoughtful and caring atmosphere.

Mr. and Mrs. Capes

I have been visiting John Glassby since 1976, and followed him to Glassby Dental Surgery. I can thoroughly recommend them, as a very nervous dental patient I am happy to report that my visits are a relaxed and happy experience!

Mrs. Murray - Hedon

It is always such a pleasure to go Glassby Dental Surgery, despite the inevitable nerves around our adult decaying teeth. Over the years, they have not only kept our teeth in perfect condition but also our children’s. I have complete trust in the team, their knowledge and judgment and wonderful skills. In a crisis, there is always time made for an appointment the same day, however long that made their working day. Now Jonathan has succeeded his father, I feel exactly the same: confident in his abilities and appreciative of his understanding. The Glassbys have contributed significantly to our family’s quality of life and we admire and thank them for their service.

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson

My husband and I have been with the practice for more than thirty years and have always found them to be very professional, skilful and caring. Most of the time has been with Mr. Glassby Senior but, since taking over the practice, Mr. Glassby Junior has shown the same skills and friendly, understanding approach.
