What is the definition of a periodontist dentist?

In order to define Periodontology or Periodontics (from Greek peri “around”  and odontos  “tooth”) is the speciality of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, diseases, and conditions that affect them. The definition of the supporting tissues are the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament.

To define therefore; this is a professional who practises in this special field of dentistry who has additional training and qualifications. The British Society of periodontology exists to promote the art and science of periodontology. Their membership includes specialist practitioners, periodontists, general dentists, consultants and trainees in restorative dentistry, clinical academics, dental hygienists and therapists, specialist trainees in periodontology and many others.

A few words about my career as a periodontist

I qualified from Liverpool University in 1992 and worked in the Wirral area, Merseyside for 12 months as a vocational general dental practitioner.  Then I came back to my home city of Birmingham where I worked inner city area for a further 18 months in a large general dental practice. This exposed myelf to huge amount of dental disease and in particular gum disease.  I was astonished to find out that in UK’s second city with a population over 1 million that there was no Specialist Periodontist in Birmingham. The nearest practice offering this type of gum therapy and implants was in Leicester which is over 45 miles away.  Comparing this San Francisco which has a similar population,  there is over 200 Periodontists in that area alone.  This lead me to start a training programme in both dental implant implantology and also a Masters degree at Liverpool University.  After completing a Master’s degree in Periodontology in 1997, I then lectured in the periodontal department at Liverpool University from 1998 till 2000 part time.  In 2000 I was awarded membership of the Restorative Dentistry faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons (England) after passing the exams and in the same year was entered onto the General Dental Council’s Specialist Register in Periodontics. Since 1996 I have taking referrals for periodontal and implant therapy. I started in Harborne in 1997 and have been here since that date.

After almost 17 years since I started my training and I am still the only Full time Specialist Periodontist in the City of Birmingham and surrounding areas ! 

In addition to my role as Principal of Birmingham Peridontal and Implant Centre, I have also  taught part-time at the Birmingham University Dental School. Since then I  lectured extensively in the UK and Europe on Periodontology and Dental implantology.
