Dentists

  • Dr Iain G Richmond

    Dentist with special interest in Oral Surgery and Implant Dentistry Senior Dental Clinician (GDC No. 45616) BDS (Dund) 1971 Implant Surgeon & Mentor for AstraTech Implant Systems

    After graduating in 1971 from the University of Dundee, Dr Richmond served as a dental officer in the army for six years. It was here, he maintains, that his enthusiasm for dentistry really began. Experiencing challenging situations ranging from treating soldiers in field hospitals to the relative luxury provided by the American forces base camp dental centres. It was at that time much of the interest for advanced technology and techniques, which his American colleagues employed, rubbed off on him and, as he says, “the rest is history”.

    Dr Richmond’s first experience of implants occurred about 25 years ago when a new patient attended the practice wanting a bridge recemented. It turned out that the bridge had been attached to a blade implant, which he found was rock solid. Intrigued he found out who the dentist was that had provided the bridge, made contact, and from these beginnings his interest in implantology was formed.

    Over the next 25 years Dr Richmond followed the development of implantology from the placing of fairly “crude” blade implants to the highly predictable and successful technology that we now employ. As implantology continued to evolve he completed a course in Gavle, Sweden, where he was introduced to the Astra System, which he now employs. In Sweden he participated in live surgery with bone graft procedures including implant placement using Bio-oss augmentation techniques. This was in 2001 and he decided after that to undertake more formal training with the RCS diploma course in implantology. He has spent two years on this rigorous course gaining in depth knowledge academically as well as practically and also by attending three courses in academic centres in Germany plus eighteen monthly assessments at the Royal College of Surgeons, London.

    Since the completion of our new theatre facilities, Dr Richmond is becoming increasingly involved in referrals from colleagues. He is very keen for referring dentist to become involved in treatment such as completing the crown and bridgework, for the implants which he places, should the referring dentist wish to do so.

    Dr Richmond would like colleagues to have confidence that patients referred to our clinic will receive the highest standard of care. To this end he would like to invite colleagues, who would like to refer, to visit our clinic and observe the treatment facilities for themselves.
