Professor Tipton regularly features in Dentistry magazine’s Top 10 Most Influential People in Dentistry.

The General Dental Council have recognised the need for specialism in Dentistry and so in 1999 created the specialist register. Professor Tipton was one of the first to be awarded specialist status by the GDC in 1999.

Throughout many areas of our life we rely on specialists when we have a specific problem or need expert advice. Within the field of dentistry, a Prosthodontist is a term that most of the general public will not have heard, let alone understand, yet it is a specialism that requires years of additional education and expertise. Indeed the Prosthodontist is often referred to as the architect of a dental treatment plan and it is this dental speciality that involves the planning and restoration or replacement of teeth.

The Prosthodontist brings together both the restorative elements of dentistry and the cosmetic (or aesthetic) techniques to fix problems, promote better oral care and help improve smiles and will then work alongside other specialists such as endodontist, periodontist, oral surgeon, orthodontist etc.

If you are wishing to have your teeth restored or improve your smile then the Prosthodontist is the specialist whom you would see. Either ask your dentist to make the referral or call 07757 878 900 yourself for an appointment.
