Andrew Toy BDS MFGDP(UK) MMedSci,
Chief Executive Officer, the Dental Business Academy

Andrew qualified as a dentist from Bristol University in 1980, followed by a Masters degree in Clinical Education from Nottingham University in 1999.

In 1984 he opened his first purpose-built practice at Gorse Covert, Loughborough. The practice embraced the concepts of total quality management and became one of the first four in the UK to become ISO 9002 accredited in 1992. Since then Andrew has become well known for his work promoting the value of Clinical Governance and Audit. This has involved national and international programmes with hundreds of dentists and DCPs every year, from small study clubs to FD schemes and Masters level students.

As Chief Executive Officer of The Dental Business Academy, Andrew has extended this work to include a comprehensive quality management support service to help practices improve their standards of patient care.
