Dr. Martyn Amsel
BARD Conference Committee Role General advisor as previous Scientific Chairman
BDS(Hons) LDS DGDP (RCS Eng)
Martyn joins BARD as a Vice President and is also the Scientific Chairman of the inaugural BARD Conference.
Martyn qualified in 1971 at UCH in London and went on to develop a large dental practice in the midlands of the UK. This practice has always been evolving and now comprises of 6 dentists, 3 Hygienists and many support staff.
Martyn has always had an interest in teaching and has become a well-respected international lecturer in both clinical and team dentistry. His style is relaxed, informative, honest, enthusiastic and interactive allowing real participation from delegates at courses.
He has collaborated with others in the making of many dental videos, written regularly for magazine publications in the UK on differing dental subjects, helped to set up the Teamwork initiative with the BDA and demonstrated 4-Handed dentistry at International conferences and trade exhibitions.
Martyn has continued to do general operative dentistry, including implant work, and still retains his enthusiasm for the profession.
For the last 30 years he has also been lecturing, running courses on the ergonomic design of surgeries and, along with his nurse Sally Chadwick, developed the use of very specific 4-Handed techniques for dentists and their assistants.
More recently he has been lecturing in Eastern Europe at annual conferences on his ideas on Posture and Ergonomic 4-Handed Dentistry and running Webinars on the subject for many organisations.
We are delighted to welcome Martyn to BARD and he has already been instrumental in arranging the inaugural BARD Conference at The Belfry May 16th-17th 2014.
