Stuart first started working in implantology in the early 1990s whilst he was in the maxillofacial surgery units of The Ulster Hospital, Belfast and St Thomas' Hospital London.
Stuart gained his BDS degree from the University of Newcastle in 1990 and subsequently added the MFGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the DPDS from the Universities of Bristol & Cardiff, and the MSc from the University of Bristol.
Since 1998 he has been a senior examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of England in the MFGDP qualification, having served as the Deputy Chief Examiner. The MFGDP is the most widely taken postgarduate GDP qualification in the UK, as well as being highly prized by dentists in Hong Kong, Singapore, India and Malaysia.
Stuart has had over 25 scientific articles published, including peer reviewed research studies and a book chapter in 'Pathways in Practice'.
Over the last 15 years Stuart has placed many implants. Although experienced in a number of different implant systems Cavendish House now uses only Nobel Biocare implants as we feel that the Nobel system offers excellent predicatbilty and high success rates.
Stuart's main areas of interest in implantology are currently in the fields of full arch reconstruction in patients with atrophic bone. He is currently working on improving the All-On-4 protocols with the use of virtual reality software.
