Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry
Since gaining the Diploma in Dental Hygiene from Glasgow Dental Hospital and School (accreditation thought the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh) in 2001 I spent time working within the Oral Cancer ward at Guys hospital and as a staff hygienist at the Eastman Dental Institute, both in London – both of which were certainly an eye opener for a newly qualified hygienist!
It did serve to give me experience in areas of dentistry not everyone gets an opportunity to be involved in. I have also spent 11 years working within a specialist periodontal referral practice based in Glasgow dealing with more complex gum problems referred to us from other dental practice. I also saw extremely anxious and dental phobic patients regularly which is a very rewarding part of my job.
Having worked in Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry since we started I treat complex periodontal problems, help patients prepare for and maintain implant work as I have been working with implants for the majority of my career, and ensure that this is followed through to ensure the best outcome possible for my patients.
I attend many courses to keep up to date with the ever changing and exciting world of dentistry
