Dundee dental student Joshua visits our Glasgow clinic: implant case on his agenda

From time to time we have dental course students from a number of Scottish universities visiting our Glasgow dental clinic.
We enjoy hosting them – and we always find they have a really keen interest in learning from their in-clinic experience.

Recently we hosted Dundee Dental School student Joshua Low at the clinic and he’s just written us a note sharing with us his feedback on the time spent with us.

Here are Joshua’s own words…

“I would like to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to visit the Philip Friel Avanced Dentistry Clinic earlier this week. I would also like to thank your colleague Liz for inviting me and Carly for organising the dates for the practice visits.

It was truly a great experience getting to know more about the practice and how it is run as well as witnessing dental care of such a high standard. I acknowledged  how important treatment planning is for patients and how well it was explained to the them, particularly when I saw your colleague, Dr. Frew, use an intra-oral camera to show patients exactly where necessary treatment will be taking place.

IMPLANT CASE

I would also like to thank Dr. Frew who let me watch an implant case on Wednesday afternoon.

Dentist Glen Frew – allowed Joshua to witness an implant case in the clinic

It was a great opportunity to see implant treatment being performed which I would rarley see at the Dundee Dental School so I was very excited and privelidged to witness this particular case.

UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP

What was interesting was the the amount of instruments needed for the surgery as well as the different types of implants  Dr Frew had which was necessary to make sure the patient had the correct implants suited for the patient’s particular type of mouth.

I also noticed the unique relationship Dr Frew had with his patient making sure she was comfortable throughout the whole appointment and updating her when beginning a new stage of the treatment.

I enjoyed every minute of my visit and appreciated how welcoming and nice everyone was. Thank you Dr. Friel, and the rest of the Philip Friel Advanced Dentistry Clinic staff,  for giving me this opportunity and I took forward to visiting the practice in the future.”

We’d like to thank Joshua for his time in writing to us about his clinic visit and we look forward to a return visit in the future as his course progresses.
