Throughout the year we invite our colleagues at our Glasgow dental clinic to put together blogs focusing on their work, past or present.
Dentist colleague Glen Frew graduated from Glasgow University in 1978 and entered private practice in the city’s Hyndland area in 1992.
WEALTH OF DENTAL IMPLANT KNOWLEDGE
At that time, through training in Gothenburg, he met and became a disciple of Per-Ingvar Branemark – regarded as ‘the father of dental implantology’ – who also discovered osseointegration (the biological fusion of bone to titanium).
And so Glen became one of the first dental surgeons in Scotland to introduce implantology into day-to-day practice.
With his considerable experience and post graduate training in Europe and the United States, Glen has a wealth of dental implant knowledge and an evidence base which he has accumulated over the years.
FANTASTIC WAY WITH WORDS
As well as his dental expertise, Glen has a fantastic way with words.
With this in mind, we have asked him to produce a small series of blogs – focused on some musings/recollections, career defining moments, major changes which have occurred in the field of dentistry and other considered tales or outstanding moments.
The first of these blogs, presented unprompted, is almost complete and when you read it, you will understand why I was keen for more. Keep up to date with our blog for Glen’s debut instalment.
If you have any questions about the above post or would like to find out more about the services and treatments – including dental implants – that we offer at our Glasgow dental clinic then please contact us on 0141 339 7579.
