Wessington Dental Welcomes Specialist Orthodontist, Chris Baillie!

Chris ventured North from his native Liverpool to graduate as a dentist from Newcastle University before commencing additional Vocational Training in the North-East of England. Following a year in general practice, he then spent a year as a hospital resident Senior House Officer in Maxillo-Facial Surgery in the West Midlands.

He then took time out to travel around the world before returning fully refreshed to the North-East to complete the two and a half year Newcastle Dental Hospital Senior House Officer Rotation. This provided further training in all hospital specialities including Restorative Dentistry, Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, Oral and Maxilla-Facial Surgery, Oral Medicine and Sedation. During this period Chris completed his Membership examination at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Chris was then accepted into the three year, full-time Orthodontic Specialist training program at Leeds Dental Hospital and completed a concurrent Masters degree in Orthodontics. Chris’ clinical practice has been solely Orthodontics for 13 years and he is currently a Specialist Orthodontist in South Tyneside seeing NHS children referrals whilst also seeing private adult and children Orthodontic referrals across the region.

Chris is recognised by the General Dental Council as a specialist in Orthodontics. He uses all forms of fixed and removable braces to ensure that each patient has the system best suited to their clinical situation and lifestyle. Chris’ area of special interest is digital treatment planning and Invisalign.

Local Dentist becomes major Dental Body Representative for North East.

Wessington Dental – Portfolio Business Award nominee and home to Dr Paul Shenfine – the newest ADI representative for the North East. 

The Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) is one of the largest dental bodies in the U.K. It is dedicated to educating the dental profession and general public on implants. Founded 29 years ago with over 2,220 members, it goes to show how passionate Dr Shenfine is about restoring the North East’s smiles.

Speaking about his recent title, Dr Shenfine said: “I have been lucky to have been taught by many talented dentists throughout my career. I feel that the overriding purpose of the ADI should be education, sharing of knowledge and support. As a member of the committee, I welcome the opportunity to help shape the future of the ADI.” 

Dr Shenfine who also works at Darras Dental in Ponteland, added: “This is my way of giving something back to dentistry and the dental community.”

He said implant dentistry is “at the frontier of knowledge and is really in many ways still in its infancy, as dental implants were only invented in the 1980s. The science around them is still evolving at an increasing pace. It’s nice to have a say in shaping the future of implant dentistry at a national level.” 

Dr Shenfine continued: “I am as excited and enthusiastic about implant and restorative dentistry as I was at the start of my career – 30 years ago”
