AG DENTAL - OUR STORY
AG Dental is owned by Allister Griffin (Managing Director). Allister has a degree (with honours) in Agricultural Engineering with Business Management (2001) and first started work in Agriculture Horticultural Environmental Systems.
With experience working with industry leaders like Minerva and Schein in Ireland, Allister was head hunted by Dental Services Direct. In April 2008, Allister started the AG Dental journey from humble beginnings in a garage, a kitchen table and a van.
Allister moved to his first work premises in Portishead then Hambrook before moving to Shrivenham in Swindon in September 2013. The business went from strength to strength, outgrowing many work premises along the way to reach their current premises in 2018 with 3 office areas, upstairs store room, warehouse and a workshop!
Allister now heads up a team of 5 and together they deliver a full offering of dental engineering services and products along with bespoke dental cabinetry services, all to extremely high standards.
