Professor Edward Lynch to open Scottish Dental Show

16 January, 2015

One of the UK’s foremost clinical academics has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the 2015 Scottish Dental Show.

Professor Edward Lynch, the former head of dentistry at the University of Warwick, will be presenting his ‘50 Top Tips for better and more successful clinical dentistry’ at Braehead Arena on Friday 29 May.

Prof Lynch is an associate clinical professor at Warwick and, as well as being on the GDC’s specialist list for endodontics, prosthodontics and restorative dentistry, he has been awarded nearly 100 research grants totalling £5 million in his distinguished career.

Before joining Warwick, he was professor of restorative dentistry and gerodontology at Queen’s University Belfast as well as consultant in restorative dentistry to the Royal Hospitals from 2000 to 2010.
Prior to that he worked at the University of London for 20 years (1980-2000) as senior lecturer in conservative dentistry and honorary consultant in restorative dentistry, as well as being the postgraduate course organiser.

He has more than 500 publications under his belt, including chapters in books, refereed abstracts and has successfully supervised more than 50 MSc, MPhil and PhD students.

He is a consultant to the ADA, a spokesperson for the BDA, a scientific board member of the International Health Care Foundation and ISBOR, is on the editorial board of numerous International journals and has spent decades as very much a ‘wet gloved’ academic, treating many specialist referrals every week, previously in the Royal Victoria Hospital as well as in Saint Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospitals.
