  • Assess the factors affecting choice of treatment method

Roger has run a specialist referral practice as part of a larger referral practice for over 35 years.

His particular interest has been the interface between periodontology and the other disciplines of dentistry, especially the perio-restorative interface and the incorporation of implant treatment into this area. Effective and efficient treatment is a major interest. He developed one of the first risk assessment indices fifteen years ago and has extensive experience in the use of risk as an aid to planning predictable treatment and outcomes.

Over many years, Roger has been extensively involved in postgraduate teaching and has given many courses both in the UK and Europe. He has also taught undergraduates at Birmingham Dental School for many years. He has examined at FDS, MGDS, FFGDP, BDS and diploma levels.

Currently, Roger is partly retired but remains very active in undergraduate teaching in Birmingham, and also at MSc and Restorative Diploma level. He runs a study group on treatment planning and an undergraduate special study module on treatment planning.
