Bupa Dental Care Dundee

Graeme Ker

GDC - 264290 BDS University of Glasgow 2016 Dentist

Dr Ker is excited to join the highly experienced Bupa Dental Care Dundee implant team, where he can deliver predictable and safe implant solutions that are tailored to the patient.

Training and qualifications

After obtaining an honours degree in chemistry, Dr Ker completed his dental degree at Glasgow University in 2016 and soon began restoring implants in general private practice. He graduated top of his class from the British Academy of Implant and Restorative Dentistry and continues to attend further courses as a student and as a mentor. He is a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI) which has helped him stay up to date with evidence-based approaches. He prefers to use Straumann branded implants as well as modern surgical protocols, such as digitally planned surgical guides, osseodensification for softer bone and sinus lifting procedures, and immediate implant placement with bone grafting.

Treatments offered

Dr Ker has undertaken further education in key restorative disciplines such as occlusion, full mouth treatment planning, oral surgery and aesthetic smile design. In his general practice he also carries out endodontics, short-term orthodontics, composite bonding, crowns, bridges and veneers, lending to multi-disciplinary approaches for the benefit of his patients.

He believes the following are key factors in implant success:

  • Case selection and patient motivation
  • Appreciation of medical history and the patient’s limitations
  • Smile design and design of prosthetic envelope
  • Digital planning using CBCT and STL
  • The use of osseodensification where indicated
  • Implant placement to allow screw access through prosthetic envelope
  • Appreciation of pink aesthetics in anterior zone
  • Predictable guided bone regeneration
  • Soft tissue surgical skills
  • Optimal design of final prosthesis
  • Lifelong maintenance
  • Dr Ker enjoys providing high quality care to all his patients and is currently accepting referrals for implants, bone and soft tissue augmentation and oral surgery.
