Dr Andrew Dawood
Digital work-flow demystified
Dr Dawood qualified from The Royal London Hospital in 1984 and followed this with hospital appointments at Guy’s Hospital, University College Hospital, The Eastman Hospital and The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street.
He went on to study for a masters degree in conservative dentistry at Guy’s Hospital and in 2000 was accepted on to the specialist register in both prosthodontics and periodontics.
Andrew has been placing dental implants for more than 25 years, and this has become his particular area of interest and expertise.
He teaches and lectures extensively in the UK and abroad, and devotes time to research and development in implant dentistry, 3D imaging, and 3D manufacturing with several of his innovations patented, at times using his own designs of implants, which are specially manufactured for particularly challenging cases.
Dr Dawood has honorary appointments at University College Hospital, St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospitals, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and The Moorfields Hospital, where he is involved in advanced implant treatments for patients requiring jaw or facial reconstruction.
He has also contributed to the developments of new technologies and treatments for patients with advanced problems, to make surgery less invasive and more predictable – he particularly enjoys the challenge of almost never refusing to help a patient who needs restoration with dental implants and thrives on the interactions of working together with colleagues referring their patients for specialist care.
His interest in technology is not confined to dentistry, and in 2008 founded Digits2widgets.com, a 3D printing design studio, which helps to make other peoples ideas and designs a physical reality.
He spends his spare time sculpting with clay and throwing pots.
Andrew is an avid reader, he cycles and enjoys listening to classical music – particularly when played by his children!
