M Myint

Michael recently finished his prosthodontics specialist training last month at Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL). He did his undergraduate training there and has always been drawn back to the East End of London where he was born and bred.

Michael had started his foundation training in Devon and did a year of OMFS as a DCT at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. It was during the weekly free flap surgeries, he was curious how prosthodontists would replace missing teeth in complex cases and he decided to embark on the journey he is currently on now.

Michael now divides his time in practice in London at Specialist Dental Services, Bupa Dental Centre Bank and the Royal London Dental Hospital. Here he is continuing his clinical trial regarding the patient satisfaction and quality of life outcomes between different denture teeth. “I’m very passionate about patient outcomes. Its important to me that  we push our standards and deliver the best techniques we have available to us to produce the outcomes the patients want from us. Questioning why something works is important to our day to day decisions and judgements we make.”

He is currently the Newsletter Editor and Young Practitioner’s Co-Chair with Jonathan Dixon within the BSSPD.
