Royal College announces dental dean-elect
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) has announced the appointment of Professor Grant McIntyre as the Dean-Elect of its Faculty of Dental Surgery.
Professor McIntyre has served as Vice-Dean since September 2022 alongside Professor Phil Taylor, who currently holds the position of Dean of the Faculty.
As Dean, Professor McIntyre will be responsible for overseeing the dental education, examination and internationalisation portfolios offered by RCSEd, as well as ensuring the College remains at the forefront of dentistry in the UK and globally. He will officially take on the role at the College’s AGM in September.
Professor McIntyre brings a wealth of experience to his new role. After graduating from the University of Glasgow with a degree in Dentistry in 1993, he went on to complete his PhD in Orthodontics at the University of Dundee in 2001. He has been a consultant in orthodontics for the past 20 years, with a particular focus on cleft lip and palate care and facial deformity.
Professor Taylor said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Grant McIntyre as Dean-Elect of the Faculty of Dental Surgery. Carrying out this role has been an incredible privilege for me, and I am pleased to hand over the reins to someone with not only an abundance of ability but plenty of passion too.
“I am sure he will do a fantastic job of driving the Faculty and the College forward, continually striving to make things better for patients and healthcare professionals alike.”
Professor McIntyre said: “Being elected to this position is an incredible honour. I am thoroughly looking forward to leading our wonderful Faculty over the coming years. I’ve gained invaluable experience over the years as a member of Dental Council and latterly as Vice-Dean. I am grateful to be able to work with such an incredible professional and personal support team both inside and beyond the College.”
