Meet The Team
At Crystal Clear we feel that it is important for all our patients to know our team members. As part of our continued success and growth we would like to welcome and introduce our growing team.
As a practice, our team members as individuals bring to us and you, our patients, a richness of personality which along with their wish to develop, we hope will make our patients enjoy their visits to our practice, regardless how small or involved their appointments may be.
Our Clinical & Managing Director
Dr. Robert W. Grabowski
Rob, the owner of CrystalClear Dental, is a Scotsman born and bred despite the Polish surname. Even after 36 years in East Yorkshire, where Rob has owned 5 other dental practices, he still maintains his Scottish accent. Rob always tells anyone who comments on his accent that he is now more English than Scottish.
Rob has been married to Gail for 32 years and has 2 grown up sons, David and Oliver.
Robs hobbies include golf and music. Rob boasts that he played for Dundee Football Club in the late seventies but when challenged he then admits it was playing keyboards in the club house!
Rob has always attended postgraduate courses regularly up and down the country and abroad. Rob has a particular interest in placing Dental Implants receiving training in Boston and extensive training throughout the UK including Sheffield Dental School and under Paul Tipton, a well known specialist and trainer in implantology and cosmetic dentistry
He is especially interested in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics …. "Art school would have been my next choice to dentistry"
Over the last near enough 36 years of practice, Rob has patients following him from Scotland to London to see him.
Rob also likes treating kids … his wife asks on many occasions "when are you going to grow up?" … so, kids! … you’re "OK" here at CrystalClear!.
