After training in his native New Zealand, Nick studied at the Eastman Dental Institute where he obtained the M.Clin.Dent degree in Prosthodontics. Nick also holds the following Royal College of Surgeons memberships and fellowship MRD RCS(Ed), MFDS RCS(Eng) and FRACDS.
His areas of interest include all aspects of dentistry related to dental implants and fixed and removable prosthodontics.
Of particular interest has been his involvement in digital dentistry. He is particularly interested in computer-guided surgery for the simplification of surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. This is facilitated by using 3D x-rays in conjunction with virtual implant planning software, intraoral scans, 3 D printing of surgical guides and milling of CAD CAM restorative options.
Nick is a Straumann accredited mentor and a member of the ADI. Nick is a fellow of the ITI, where he is also a ITI study club director. He has presided over the LDSC and was a founding member of the NZDSL. He also is a past president (and President Elect) of the Reading Branch of the BDA (2012 + 2018).

Simple Digital Implant Dentistry – Is it time to move out of the Stone Age? Part 1
To show how utilizing a range of digital tools in implant dentistry can streamline treatment and increase profitability.
Course objectives: Through a light hearted lecture, I plan on highlighting how digitization is changing the face of implant dentistry as we know it (even if we don’t know it’s happening) and how these technologies can be harnessed to streamline treatment and increase profitability. I will conclude by discussing some short falls in digital implant dentistry and answer the question… “Is it time to move out of the Stone Age with simple implant dentistry?”
