Implant Surgeon, co-founder of The Implant Centre
Having trained in the UK Guy qualified as both a dentist and medical doctor, with a degree in psychology. Guy prides himself on his ability to simplify implant dentistry and reassure patients at every stage. He trained at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals gaining distinctions and was put forward for the University of London Gold Medal (the highest accolade from the college). The focus of his psychology degree was dental anxiety and this is utilised on a daily basis putting nervous patients at ease with his relaxed chairside manner. Guy says “Explaining every step during the procedure is one of the most important skills to have, people need to know what is happening and how everything is going, my patients find this most reassuring”.
Guy is rightly proud of his audited success rate for implants of over 99% (5 year data). His aim is to simplify each treatment plan, this allows for a faster healing and most patients can expect a painless and trouble free healing period due to the minimal intervention (keyhole) surgical techniques he has developed. He has mentored over 40 dentists and is an accredited mentor for the Association of Dental Implantology. Other roles include previous Chairman of the local section of the British Dental Association and remaining an active member of the committee. He lectures frequently to dentists helping training in the techniques he has developed.
Guy has a specific interest in management of failures and complications relating to implants placed overseas and at other clinics and he says “these are some of the most challenging cases that we see, but the patients who have been placed in this predicament need help all the way to regain confidence in how implant dentistry should be carried out”.
