Martyn Amsel qualified in 1971 at UCH in London and went on to develop a large dental practice in the midlands of the UK. This practice has always been innovative and continuously evolving and now comprises six dentists, four hygienists and many support staff.
The practice deals with most aspects of dentistry and Martyn learnt his implant techniques over a 25-year period by attending courses all over the world and being mentored by Lloyd Searson. Martyn has always had an interest in teaching and has become a well-respected international lecturer in both clinical and team dentistry. His style is relaxed, informative, honest, enthusiastic and interactive allowing real participation from delegates at courses.
He has collaborated with others in the making of many dental videos, written regularly for magazine publications in the UK on differing dental subjects, demonstrated 4-handed dentistry at international conferences and trade exhibitions as well as consultancy work for dental practices.
He set up a Young Dentist Academy to encourage and give confidence to recently qualified dentists who seem to be getting minimal experience of practical dentistry at the undergraduate level.
Having done dentistry in the same practice for 43 years he has a wealth of experience as to what does and does not work in dentistry.
In 2016 he retired from clinical dentistry but continues to help in the profession including still teaching.
