The Old Church Dental Practice
GDC - 63676 MDentsci (Rest Dent) Leeds 2006 BDS University of Sheffield 1988 Dentist
Nigel began his professional career in dentistry when he qualified as a dentist from Sheffield University in 1988, gaining the ‘KaVo’ prize in oral surgery. He started advanced restorative dentistry training in 1999 and completed his master’s degree in Restorative Dentistry in 2005 at the Leeds Dental Institute.
He has worked in private prosthodontic practice since 1995 and has received advanced training in the fields of dental implants, cosmetic and restorative dentistry by some of the world’s leading clinicians.
After spending several years at a referral practice in Manchester, Nigel then built up his own purely referral practice in West Yorkshire. He provides all aspects of dental implant treatments, both surgical and restorative, along with all other aspects of prosthetic, prosthodontic and cosmetic dental treatments. Nigel’s passion is for both cosmetic and functional reconstructions, whether using veneers, crowns, natural teeth or integrating dental implants where teeth are missing.
Nigel’s particular interest is in full arch dental implant reconstructions and he regularly uses immediate loading techniques, also known as smile in a day treatment, to place dental implants and then in the same day, fit a full-arch fixed bridge, eliminating the need for any form of dentures.
He has been involved in teaching and lecturing since 2003, both as a national and international guest lecturer, but predominantly as part of his own teaching academy, which he founded in 2008. Here, Nigel has run restorative dentistry and dental implant courses in a combination of formats, ranging from single day courses, to 12-month long modular courses. These courses are now combined with the Yorkshire Dental Suite Academy, where available courses include Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Dental Implantology.
Nigel is a respected member of The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The International Team for Implantology, The Association of Dental Implantologists UK, The International College of Prosthodontists, The British Association of Private Dentists and The British Dental Association.
Away from dentistry, Nigel is an ultra-runner, running in trail races from 50km up to 100 miles.
