Meet our experienced staff
Nicholas (Nick) Baker obtained his Bachelor in Dental Surgery (BDS) from the University of Dundee in 1985. Having joined the Royal Navy in 1983, he left in 1991 having attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He immediately entered full-time general dental practice. After a short while sharing his time between Mr. Sayegh's orthodontic practice and general dental practice, he moved to full-time in orthodontics, sharing his time equally between Mr. Sayegh's and Mr. F. Stuart's (Morningside) orthodontic practices. Nick has been working (now full-time) in Mr. Sayegh’s orthodontic practice since 1992.
Gail graduated from Edinburgh Dental Hospital and School in June 1982. After graduating she worked in a general dental practice for 6 months. She returned to work at the Edinburgh Dental Hospital as a House Officer in oral surgery, before moving into paediatric dentistry, periodontics and finally orthodontics. She progressed form a junior House Officer to acting Registrar. From there, Gail moved onto working for the community Dental Service in West Lothian, where she stayed for 14 years until 1998. Gail joined S.Y. Sayegh Orthodontics that year and is still there to this date.
