Giving something back

Garry is also the creator and Founder-President of  “Veïns i Amics de Gotmar AAVV” a Spanish-registered association in Mallorca. Thanks to the collaboration of committee members, journalists from the Mallorcan press, TV, municipal engineers and support from local and regional politicians, the mayor and members of the council of Pollensa, lawyers, friends, members and neighbours, € 3 million was budgeted to regenerate the neighbourhood. A unanimous vote in Pollensa town council was taken by politicians to support Dr Bonsall's association and regenerate our neighbourhood. By 2016, € 3 000 000 had already been invested in beautiful new streets .

In Basel Garry was shocked to get a huge tax-bill for his clean, silent Tesla electric car. He then worked to reduce punitive taxes on electric cars and taxes were eventually reduced by 95%, according with the Paris Global Warming agreements. 

Garry´s wife, Dr. med. Irene Bonsall, is a Basel-born general and internal medicine family doctor in Urs Graf Strasse 12, Gellert, Basel www.PraxisimGellert.ch  

Garry is currently enjoying learning Basel Deutsch!

Autobiography

Some patients say:

 “Oh doctor, please don’t shout at me when you see the bad state of my teeth.” I don’t! I love the opportunity to give them a huge “before and after” difference.  


I love being a dentist, being with and helping people, making their lives more enjoyable. I am in awe of the trust and hope my patients have placed in me. Over 20 000 happy patients have trusted me with their two most valuable commodities: their health and their money. 


When my happy patients bring along their own family, friends and loved ones to see me, this is my confirmation that I am doing things well 

 

The best compliment I can get is when my patients  say that I have given them not only a beautiful new smile and that they can now eat whatever they wish - but that they have also gotten back their lost self-confidence and self-esteem. Many are overjoyed at loosing their fear of dentists.


It’s surprising, but getting new teeth can actually change your life!  

 

Many patients return with a new hair-do, or a new outfit - some even come back with a new partner! I enjoy the art involved in creating beautiful new smiles and teeth and aim to imitate the divine beauty in nature.

 

I took my degree in dental surgery in Manchester and have founded three wonderful, leading and attractive dental clinics, one in central Frankfurt, Germany, one in sunny  Mallorca, Spain and I am now in beautiful Basel, Switzerland. 

 

Call us today, join our family of happy patients and let me know if there' s anything I can also do for you...
