More about Rupert Monkhouse
Rupert graduated from King’s College London in 2017. He went on to complete foundation training in Hull before returning to London.
During his time in Hull at the 543 Dental Centre, Rupert became heavily involved in Teeth Team, which runs thanks to a large number of staff at the practice. Teeth Team is a charity supporting oral health education in schools. As well as supplying tooth brushing equipment. The charity also visits each school twice annually to assess the children.
Rupert still involves himself with assessments for some of the southern schools. He is the lead for the new London hub as the charity looks to increase the reach of its work.
He now works in two practices: Woodborough House, Reading and Shrubbery Dental Practice, Worcester.
So far in his career he has particularly enjoyed prosthodontics, specifically removable. He shares cases on his Instagram page @DentistRupert.
Working at Woodborough house has been particularly pivotal in this, working closely with prosthodontist Dr Nick Fahey.
As part of this Rupert joined the ITI (International Team for Implantology). He recently received a nomination to become an ambassador for the Young ITI division. Rupert hopes to take this forward with implant training and an MClinDent in prosthodontics.
Outside dentistry, Rupert enjoys travel and photography. This year he was shortlisted as a finalist for The Natural History Museum: Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020!
