GDC Registration number 63729

The Principal Dentist at the Street Lane Dental Implant Clinic in Leeds is Dr Paul Roberts, a Specialist in Periodontics, registered with the General Dental Council. In the U.K. there are just over 300 such Specialists.

Paul qualified from Manchester Dental School in 1998 and immediately took up a position as a House Officer at the Dental School.

In 1990 Paul entered general practice where he began his interest in periodontology (the study of gums and gum disease) and dental implants. Over a two-year period Paul combined working part-time with studying at Liverpool Dental School resulting in a Masters Degree (MDentSci) in Periodontology in 1995. The next year following further study, Paul was examined and then awarded a Diploma in General Dental Practice from the Royal College of Surgeons [DGDP (UK)].

Over the next few years Paul developed further skills in periodontology and continued to expand his knowledge of dental implants.

In 1998 Paul set up the Street Lane Dental Implant Clinic as a referral centre for periodontal and dental implant treatment in Leeds.

Over the past 15 years the Clinic has gained a reputation for its excellence in both these areas and has received referrals from all over Yorkshire and beyond. Over the past five years alone the Clinic has received nearly 600 referrals from over 150 different Dentists.

Paul is extremely proud of the faith shown in him and his team by the many different referring Dentists and works hard to maintain these important relationships.

In 2000 Paul was granted Specialist status in periodontology by the General Dental Council, recognising his experience and ability in this important area of dentistry.

In 2005 Paul began further study at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and in 2007 was awarded a Diploma in Implant Dentistry [DipImpDent RCS (Eng)] as well as an Advanced Certificate (Adv Cert) recognising his ability to carry out bone grafting procedures. This qualification is widely regarded as the gold-standard in implant training and is held by a minority of Dentists carrying out implant work in the U.K.

In addition to all this studying Paul also likes to teach other Dentists, particularly about dental implant techniques, and has presented many lectures in Leeds and across the UK. He has also run several comprehensive practical courses and has helped many Dentists get started with implant treatment.
