Show biography»

I qualified from Sheffield in 1987 and moved to Kent in 1994, working at his current practice since 1998, becoming a co-owner in 2002 and achieving Denplan Excel Accreditation in 2004.

For over 20 years I have sought out the best teachers in the world in cosmetic, reconstructive and functional dentistry to gain the skills that I now offer patients at Sturry Dental Practice in Canterbury, Kent. I created the exclusivesmiles.co.uk brand to showcase the best that modern dentistry has to offer. I also provide sessions at Sittingbourne Memorial Hospital for Medway Community Healthcare as a Dental Officer treating special needs patients.

As a previous full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic dentistry (BACD), I have experience in treating all type of cosmetic problems from simple tooth whitening to full smile makeovers. In the past I have been a member of the BACD membership, communication and congress committees. I have a reputation for a conservative approach to dentistry that will offer long term aesthetic results from the minimum of intervention; this can be seen with my use of various brace systems to align teeth prior to a final makeover.

I have a special interest in the treatment of head, neck and facial pain and its relation to poor jaw function and am a member of the British Society of Occlusal Studies (BSOS) which exists to help practitioners treat and prevent these common problems. Membership is by invitation only to practising dentists who have completed an arduous training programme which typically takes five years. I have lectured on the subject to other dentists and technicians and provided hands on courses on Facebow use and jaw registration.

I am an “opinion leader” for Ivoclar Vivadent and lecture and tutor hands on courses for them on Composites, Cements and tooth preparation for the Emax ceramic system.

I like to help people to understand what dentistry can offer them and as the No1 ‘Active Dentist’ on the award-winning patient education website All About Teeth (allaboutteeth.co.uk), spend time answering the public’s questions regarding their dental concerns. I am also a member of the Association of Dental Implantology UK (ADI, visit adi.org.uk), a registered charity dedicated to providing the profession with continuing implant education and the public with a greater understanding of the benefits of dental implants. I am a full member of the Tipton Training Dental Academy which provides me with the latest dental scientific knowledge and clinical techniques. I am honoured to have been asked by Paul Tipton to act as a Study Club Chairperson for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry

Dr Andy Carragher

LDS RCS, BDS, MClinDent, CPS

Show biography»

During 25 years in General Dental Practice , 21 years of which were as a sole principal, I have experienced all facets of UK dentistry from exclusively NHS practice to exclusively Private practice.

From the very beginning of my career I have been keen to improve my skills and knowledge. My commitment to postgraduate education ultimately led to a Master’s degree in Prosthodontics. This in turn led to a major career change when just six months after graduation I became a full-time Senior Clinical Teacher in Restorative Dentistry at Liverpool University Dental Hospital.

In this role over the last 12 years I have taught hundreds of undergraduates the fundamentals of Restorative dentistry and supervised the same students on clinic from their first ever patient until the day they pass their final examinations.

I have a special interest in Aesthetic dentistry and have taught on the Crown Course since 2006. Together with a colleague we founded an Advanced Composite Techniques course for senior students.

This year a student whose entry I supervised was chosen as the UK National Winner and is due to compete at the Global Final of the DENTSPLY Sirona Clinical Skills Competition in Konstanz Germany this June.

I have great enthusiasm for teaching dentistry performed to a high standard which can be predictable and long lasting. More importantly, for our patients such treatment can be transformative in terms of confidence and self-esteem.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with postgraduate students looking to take their practice of dentistry to the next level and beyond.

Show biography»

I have been qualified as a dental technician for over 30 years, in that time I’ve gained experienced in all aspects of dentistry.

My parents told me to do something you love because if you don’t it will feel like work and you’re there for a long time son, fortunately for me I love dental technology and my passion and hunger to learn and do the best I can for my clients and ultimately the patients is down to loving what I do.

I like sharing my knowledge and passion for dental technology, I lecture and teach whenever I can, it’s been a pleasure teaching and helping with Paul Tipton on his courses around the world, helping technicians to learn being an Ivoclar Opinion Leader, showing dentists how DIgital Smile Design can help them motivate and communicate with them and their team to achieve predictable beautiful results.

I have my own lab in Sheffield, Art Dental Studio is a small and beautiful lab with a dedicated team giving my private clients the results and service their patients deserve.

What do I say to others when asked about the course? If you have any fears regarding the sale of private work, you want to improve your efficiency, practical skills, reduce stress and increase your satisfaction you should attend a Tipton Training Course.
~ Aleksandra Kowal

Why should I do the PG Diploma in Restorative Dentistry?

The PG Diploma in Restorative Dentistry teaches you the theory behind Restorative Dentistry, lets you get confident with your tooth preparation techniques and then provides you with the tools to understand, plan and deliver high quality private Aesthetic Treatments. The range of treatments you’ll feel confident in offering will increase massively by enrolling on to this course. The three components of the course complement each other perfectly. You will taught the theoretical foundations developed over many years in the forms of scientific papers. You will then take the knowledge gained in fundamental areas such as Occlusion to ensure that the Aesthetic treatments you provide do not fail. The theory that you are taught will fit perfectly when you prep teeth on Phantom Heads.

What is the benefit of doing PG Diploma and not just to the PG Certificate in Restorative Dentistry, PG Certificate in Operative Dentistry, and PG Certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry.

The PG Diploma in Restorative Dentistry is essentially the best way of getting into the higher end of providing private aesthetic treatment and managing different patient cases confidently. Should you choose to do the PG Diploma in an standard format and complete it within 18 months you can also reap the advantages of improved treatment delivery earlier. You can choose any options you feel suitable as Tipton Training has a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy which will ensure that your existing education within another Tipton Training course is taken into consideration. Every time you do a PG Diploma or a PG Certificate you must pay additional registration fees. So, should you choose to register for each course separately, you are paying 3 registrations fees. The flip side is you also get 3 certificates. It all depends on what your ambitions are.
