Special interest in periodontics, implantology and laser dentistry

I believe everyone can have a healthy, good looking and functional set of teeth and smile through a strong team play. In order to carry out my part of the partnership I have gone through a series of trainings before I could train other dentists. I studied dentistry in Istanbul and received my Master of Science degree for Lasers in Dentistry from Aachen University, Germany, which shaped a big portion of my professional life. I followed this up with my Ph.D. studies in periodontology at the University of Istanbul. My practice is limited to gum health and laser supported treatments for gum disease (aka periodontology) and different conditions and laser supported implantology. I have also been regularly teaching, training, mentoring and coaching dentists on laser dentistry both in the UK and internationally, for more than a decade.

I am heavily involved in the laser dentistry world, being the scientific director at Seesaw Dental Courses; representative of the prestigious international training and education centre AALZ of Aachen University, Germany and World Federation for Laser Dentistry in the United Kingdom. I am also an Adjunct Faculty Member, Lasers in Dentistry MSc program thesis co-advisor and examiner at AALZ, an expert lecturer for Laser and Health Academy, a lecturer for the German Association of Oral Implantology, Dental Online College and a training instructor for International Continuing Education Centre for Dental Implants, Nurnberg, Germany.

A big part of my professional growth has been the hundreds of theoretical courses, hands-on courses and lectures in international congresses I have given in more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia, and North America.

In addition to being on the editorial board of a number of professional journals and education websites I also have been published in international scientific journals.

I am also a founding member of Global Periodontal Laser Users Society and a member of World Academy for Laser Education & Research in Dentistry, European Federation of Periodontology, Turkish Academy of aesthetic Dentistry and British Dental Association.

And yes I do practice and accept new patients.

I love nature and trekking – especially in the Lake District. I also love technology.
