Martin J Docking DCP

Managing Director & Clinical Dental Technician


Although my father was a Dental Technician, I started my career as a fisherman…however, a couple of hard winters was all it took to steer me towards my father's chosen route. In a medium sized lab in Cornwall I worked my way up from model room technician to General Manager until in 1995, my wife Lucy & I decided to take the plunge and set-up our own lab. The first few years were difficult – as most in business are, with Lucy juggling raising our young daughters with the company admin and me surviving on a few hours' sleep a night to enable me to sell the products and then make them. Slowly we began to employ staff and now, 15 years later, the company employs a team of 18. In 2010 I completed 3 years of training & qualified as a Clinical Dental Technician so I now share my time between running Dental Precision and working as a CDT in our denture clinic - Changing Faces® Cornwall.

Special Areas of Interest
Implantology
Complete & partial prosthetic solutions
Increasing standards in denture solutions
Showcasing the talents of my incredible team
Enhancing levels of training amongst dental technicians & attracting school leavers into the profression

Hobbies and Peak Experiences
Lucy & I have been married for over 20 years and we have two daughters. I enjoy surfing, fishing & keeping fit.

Dislikes:
Bad manners & poor service.

I am now the Director of Administration and Finance at Dental Precision.

I married Martin in 1990 and we have two lovely daughters, Daisy + Lily, who make us very proud. Our 'once in a lifetime' holiday was in the Maldives where it was like swimming in a tropical fish tank…until I met a shark!! I enjoy swimming, running, going to the gym and growing vegetables
