Sammy McCulloch: How quality education has changed my career

Most dentists know that education is incredibly important to achieving their professional ambitions. One institution that recognises this is Manchester based Tipton Training, which has helped dentists take their career to the next level for over 25 years.

The Restorative Course Award Winner
A recent example for this is Sammy McCulloch, who successfully completed The Restorative Course to an extraordinarily high standard – resulting in him becoming the course’s ‘award winner’. What’s more, he believes the knowledge acquired from its modules has given him a foundation to reach the very top of his profession.

“I completed my VT last year in southwest London and wanted a way to continue developing my career. Tipton Training’s course was recommended to me by a colleague at my current practice – Pure Smiles in Fulham – and it certainly didn’t disappoint,” explains Sammy.

“The teaching was fantastic – and even though some of the treatment would be beyond what I would feel comfortable doing in practice, it shows you what is possible in dentistry and has kept me wanting to learn more and do more.”

Sammy’s dentistry career started in 2009 when he enrolled at Cardiff University. Despite enjoying his degree, after five years of learning, he feels that students were just ‘studying for the sake of studying’ towards the end of the course.

He adds: “The Restorative Course is certainly hands on, which is a fantastic way to learn. As a result, I feel so much more confident in my day-to-day practice knowing that I have a deeper understanding of the principles involved (especially when it comes to occlusion) and am doing cases that I would have never thought I’d be doing at this stage in my career. Tipton Training get five stars from me.”
The Restorative Course is a step-by-step programme in the form of practical sessions, lectures and demonstrations – delivering the foundation for private dentistry by exploring the theoretical, scientific and engineering principles behind restorative dentistry. Having successfully completed The Restorative Course, Sammy now has an understanding of the theoretical, scientific and engineering principles of restorative dentistry.
