Jonathon Pugh

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

Jon graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1987 with Honours and a Distinction in Clinical Dentistry. For more than 20 years he has pursued an interest in implantology and in 2009 was awarded an MSc with Distinction in Implant Dentistry from the University of Warwick. Jon has a wide range of implant experience - from single tooth replacement to reconstruction of full arches.

He has a particular interest in the latest restorative procedures now available for edentulous patients and for those who wear dentures, where strident changes in technology have vastly increased patient options and pushed clinical boundaries. To help him keep abreast of these developments Jon is a regular contributor on the profession’s European circuit, travelling extensively to study new procedures and map future global trends in dental care.

Julian Smith

Clinical Dental Technician
Dip Clin Dent Tech RCS (ENG) 2015
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.
