Moreton Dental Care staff were delighted to welcome eminent implant dentist Dr Steve Byfield to spend the day with the team and take part in an evening event for referring dental practices.

Dr Byfield became friends with practice principal Dr Paul Sherrard after they met at an awards presentation at the Royal College of Surgeons, London, ten years ago.

The Yorkshire-based dental surgeon is highly regarded among dentists nationally for his work in implantology and has more than 20 years’ experience of placing dental implants.

He has been a national board member of the Faculty of General Dental Practice, The Association of Dental Implantology and British Dental Health Foundation.

After spending the day working alongside Dr Sherrard at Moreton Dental Care sharing ideas and discussing cases, Dr Byfield gave a talk to staff from local dental practices who refer their implant patients to Dr Sherrard.

Dr Sherrard was delighted to welcome his visitor to Moreton.

He said: “Sincere thanks to my dear friend Steve for a fabulous day with my incredible team, and for a brilliant lecture to our referrers. He is my inspiration in implant dentistry.”

Dr Sherrard’s aim is to provide patients with high quality care and to build close working relationships with dental professionals.

Dr Sherrard was one of the first dentists to be awarded the highly-regarded Diploma in Implant Dentistry by the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
