Furthermore, at the University of Bristol and its affiliated centres, I later gained extended theoretical knowledge and practical experience in the placement and restoration of dental implants, as well treating more challenging cases referred in by other dentists. This culminated in a Master of Science degree in Dental Implantology, awarded with merit.
My work in Oral Surgery has given me the opportunity to research further aspects of this specialty and some of my findings have been nominated for a prize. I have also co-authored additional academic publications in the fields of Oral Surgery and Oral Medicine.
My interest in education has seen me become an approved Mentor through the Cambridge Academy of Dental Implantology as well as an Honorary Lecturer at the University of Bristol, helping other dentists to develop and advance their dental implant related skills in everything from simple to more complex cases.
I appreciate the importance of keeping my skills up to date and so regularly engage in conferences, lectures, and education throughout the world. This in turn enables me to greatly expand and advance my clinical techniques for the benefit of patients.
