He graduated from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Dentistry in 1994 and in 1997 became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh by examination. Colin entered practice in 1997 as a Vocational Dental Practitioner and began to build up a referral service in Oral surgery and Implant dentistry.
In 1999 Colin became a General Dental Council Registered Specialist in Oral surgery, following time as a House Officer and Senior House Officer in Oral surgery in Glasgow, Nottingham, and Derby.
In 2005 Colin was elected to fellowship of the International Team of Implantology which is now a network of 16,000 practitioners worldwide with 1,000 fellows.

Currently Colin’s main job is the owner and Clinical Director of The Campbell Clinic in Nottingham, which is a multidisciplinary specialist practice, providing treatment in many aspects of dentistry, but overwhelmingly implant dentistry.

In 2020 The Campbell Clinic moved to a purpose-built facility in Nottingham which provides an exceptional clinical and teaching environment.
