Christopher comes from an art background and draws on these skills when applying his dentistry. He has two qualifications: his primary degree from Bristol University and a Prosthodontic degree from Edinburgh University.
A degree in Prosthodontics provides a deeper understanding of materials and their application in aesthetics and the dynamic functionality of the mouth. By understanding these basic building blocks it helps to improve predictability and outcomes of treatments, thereby optimising success. We are also able to save teeth, where others deem them useless.
Christopher obtained his primary dental degree from Bristol University in 1995. In 2002, he entered a three year advanced training program at Edinburgh University, gaining his Master of Clinical Dentistry Degree in 2005, passing with distinction.
Since then further postgraduate studies include gaining:
Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Fellowship exams)
Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (Joint Faculties exams)
Certification in Invisalign Orthodontics
Chris has worked in both corporate and family practice settings. After obtaining his degree, he held a teaching and tutoring position at Edinburgh’s Post-graduate Institute, where he was involved in the specialist training pathway. For the corporate body he held an senior position, involved in guidance, treatment planning and accepted referrals in all aspects of dentistry from a pool of 16 dentists based in Edinburgh (4 practices), Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.
Prior to coming to 47 Dublin Street, Chris also held a lecturing and tutoring position with a leading implant company.
