Jonathon Pugh

Principal Dentist
BDS (BIRM) 1987. MSc Implant Dentistry
GDC No. 62663

Jon was born and educated in Birmingham, graduating from the University of Birmingham in 1987 with honours and a distinction in clinical dentistry. His MSc in implant dentistry was completed at Warwick University, again with distinction, and he has been placing and restoring dental implants for over 27 years. 

Further post graduate training has included visits to the Center for Continuing Dental Education Bern and the Malo Clinic Lisbon. It was in Lisbon he first experienced the concept of immediate loading of implants with provisional full arch bridges. This allows fixed provisional teeth to be fitted the same day teeth are removed and implants placed.

All aspects of treatment are undertaken from single tooth replacement to full arch rehabilitation but Jon's main area of interest is in helping patients through the process of tooth loss to rehabilitation with implant borne prosthesis. This process involves the placement of multiple Straumann implants with or without immediate loading. Followed by the construction of either implant retained over-dentures or fixed crown and bridgework.

Jon is also experienced in all aspects of Guided bone regeneration including sinus augmentation. These techniques are routinely used to facilitate the placement of dental implants in sites with inadequate bone volume.

The son of a dental technician Jon’s practice is heavily reliant on new technologies and cadcam processes are utilized in the restoration of dental implants. Whilst the surgical techniques learnt at the Malo Clinic have been incorporated in to the Pro Arch concept for treating the edentulous patient Jon’s delivery of the final prosthesis has evolved to offer a wider range of treatment options.

GDC NO. 130889

Julian Smith’s career in dental technology has spanned over 30-years. During this time, he successfully built a commercial laboratory, with a solid reputation for providing prosthetic solutions for complex dentures cases with removable prosthetics, chrome cobalt frameworks and implant retained removable and fixed prosthodontics.

Furthermore, his breadth and depth of experience has developed through supporting the teaching and learning of post-graduate students in Birmingham, Manchester and Worcester. This has afforded him a unique set of skills and knowledge that enables him to support both clients and patients during the construction of challenging cases.

His own recent continuing professional development has seen him complete a Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology with the Royal College of Surgeons (England), in which he gained a distinction. He believes this training and education will allow him to provide even higher-level care for both his referral clients and patients alike.
