Ross has been a dentist since 1992 after graduating from Newcastle University Dental Hospital. He worked in a hospital environment before entering general practice in 1994. He became involved with Implant Dentistry in 1999 and opened Worthing Implant Centre in 2006.
He now concentrates all of his time on Implant based treatment solutions for his patients, due to the demand for his clinical skills.
Ross has spent eight years as a tutor on The Implant Dentistry Diploma Programme run by The Faculty of General Dental Practice at The Royal College of Surgeons of England in London.
He loves what he does and takes a great deal of pride and professional satisfaction in providing outstandings clinical outcomes for his patients. These patients come from far and wide, through word of mouth referrals from clients he has treated, as well as local recommendations by other dental surgeons.
He has now placed thousands of dental implants for his clients and some of the patients he has treated have been other dentists and their family members.
When he’s not at work, Ross enjoys spending time with his family, running, clay pigeon shooting and he competes in historic motorsport events, around the UK.
Ross has been selected to be a tutor, training and helping other dentists to develop their skills within implant dentistry, at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.
Choosing the right implantologist is difficult when you know little about the procedure. In the UK, anyone with a dental degree is qualified to place dental implants. There is no obligation to undertake any formal training in implantology of any kind. The General Dental Council Education Committee has recently and clearly stated that those who wish to offer implant treatment for their patients should be competent and appropriately trained.
Ross Drybrough has gained the Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Faculty of General Dental Practice, of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. This additional qualification is currently considered to be the gold standard in postgraduate training in implant dentistry.
There are many dentists who can provide patients with implants but there are only a few who are trained to such a high level. Ross’s Implant qualification demonstrates his advanced level of training on bone grafting, tissue regeneration and detailed implant procedures. You can be assured that he will continue to maintain his current levels of expertise and further his knowledge. Ross is keen to help patients achieve the confidence they may have previously lost.
He takes great pride and professional satisfaction from providing outstanding clinical results at the end of treatment.
