An International Audience with Ross Anderson
Having started 2016 as the newly appointed Director of the Edinburgh Study Club of the International Team for Implantology, Ross’ year has continued to present new and exciting challenges...
Last month saw Ross invited to present a lecture to Europe’s most eminent implant surgeons at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in London. Sporting a suit of Aberfeldy tweed, Ross took to the podium and succeeded in placing Aberfeldy firmly on the map as a centre for dental excellence – highlighting that patients do not need to travel to large cities to receive excellent dental care.
The lecture was met with such success that Ross has been asked to present in Manchester to an audience of emerging new dental implant surgeons from all over the UK.
As well as lecturing, it’s been a busy year so far for further implant surgical training of his own. Ross spent three days under the tutelage of two of the country’s most respected head and neck surgeons at a hands-on cadaver course at the University Hospital in Coventry. Although it sounds like a gruesome way to learn, working on those who have donated their bodies to medical science is regarded as the best way to perfect advanced surgical techniques.

Oxford – a seat of superior learning
Our hygienist, Fiona Perry returned from the British Society of Periodontology Spring Conference in Oxford enthused by the latest research findings regarding periodontal (gum and bone) health and brim-full of fresh ideas to help us keep our mouths healthier. She’s a woman on a mission – be warned!
Bright Lights, Big City
Last month all of the team at Anderson Dentistry attended the Scottish Dental Show in Glasgow. We spent the day at lectures, workshops and trade stands where we discovered many things, such as new oral cancer detection techniques. Staying overnight in the city, Ross managed to survive the ‘team building’ night out despite being the only male amongst nine females!
Living Wage Employer
Last month also saw Anderson Dentistry becoming a registered Living Wage Employer – making us one of only two dental practices in Scotland on the register. We have a fantastic team working with us and appreciate them greatly!
