Title of talk:
Clinical Dental Technician, Carl Fenwick, manages the clinic. Carl has over 27 years experience working in Dental Technology after becoming a Dental Technician in 1993.
Carl has a wide variety of dental qualifications including his advanced 2-year Clinical Dental Technology course which he studied with KSS Deanery (Health Education Kent, Surrey, Sussex). Carl has also now progressed into becoming a member of the teaching team at HEKSS Deanery, continuing to be involved in the training of Clinical Dental Technicians today.
Carl, as a Biofunctional Prosthetic System (BPS) trainer, also teaches technical and clinical aspects of Prosthetics in several countries to dental professionals, widening his knowledge in the industry. Carl also prides himself upon being the solely qualified Abe Suction Denture Master Technician in the country.
All new patients will be offered a comprehensive oral and dental health check prior to starting denture treatment by one of the clinic’s general dentists. For those patients that require it, consultations are also available for those in need of general or cosmetic dentistry. If you have single or multiple teeth missing then partial denture solutions are available which include precise and comfortable light alloy frameworks as a substitute to the more bulky plastic bases.
Carl has an expert artistic eye for the creation of dentures, which are life-like and often indistinguishable from natural teeth. He handcrafts dentures with artistic flair and accuracy and is also very experienced in the restorative techniques that are involved in restoration of the mouth using complete arches of implant retained fixed teeth.
In his capacity as a Clinical Dental Technician, Carl works alongside Implant Dentist, Anthony Cooper to offer solutions to those who are experiencing uncomfortable and loose dentures.
Dr Anthony Cooper qualified in dentistry from Newcastle University in 1988 and immediately joined the Royal Navy as a Dental Officer. Five years in the Navy took him to the South coast, Scotland and to Brunei for 3 years. Anthony Joined his current practice as an associate in 1993 which he now owns outright. Anthony first became involved in Implant dentistry in 1994 and developed his skills by undergoing one of the first extensive implant training programs at the University of Sheffield from 1997-1999. Anthony is closely involved with the Association of Dental Implantology and runs their Study Club in Newcastle.
By working together as the Changing Faces® denture stabilisation team Carl and Anthony provide implant assisted dentures that restore the chewing and eating ability for wearers of complete dentures. They can also offer the innovative solution of fixed teeth where a full arch of missing or unhealthy teeth is replaced using dental implants and a fixed bridge in a one-day procedure, known as Same Day Teeth.
Rest assured that Carl can help you to achieve the smile of your dreams with a denture that fits perfectly, looks great and gives you the confidence to eat, talk and smile. Many of Carl’s patients have commented on his gentle, approachable manner in particular patients that are nervous about visiting the Dentist. The clinic offers free of charge mini consultations to denture wearers and to those who are interested in the benefits of implant assisted dentures.
