Digital Smile Design is an exciting new concept that helps us to predictably create beautiful smiles. In October both Omar Iqbal and Hassan Ali travelled to New York to join the Digital Smile Design World Tour to learn this amazing technique and bring it back to Scotland. At Complete Dental Care we are committed to continual learning and development so that we can provide you with the best treatment possible. We are going to be looking at Digital Smile Design and how it can help us give you the perfect smile in our blog posts in the next few months. We will share our journey as we bring these new skills to Scotland also as we update and equip both dental practices.
Both Omar and Hassan graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2005 and after much planning they opened Complete Dental Care in Cambuslang in 2011 with 3 members of staff. Thanks to all of our great patients the practice has grown every year and in 2014 they purchased a second dental practice in the south side of Glasgow so that they could give patients more flexibility about where they receive treatment. The Complete Dental Care team now consists of 5 dentist, 8 dental nurses, 2 practice managers and 1 dental therapist/hygienist.
Since Graduating both Omar and Hassan have been involved in post graduate training so that they could refine and advance their skills. Omar attained the MJDF qualification and Hassan attained the MFDS qualification shortly after graduating. Both Omar and Hassan have trained in several areas of cosmetic dentistry such as cosmetic adult braces, metal free crowns, veneers and porcelain inlays.
- Omar’s main interests have been in cosmetic smile design and in replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Omar completed his initial dental implant training at Sheffield University over a 2 year period, receiving a certificate in dental implant treatment. Omar is currently studying for a Masters degree in dental implants at the University of Bristol and is also continuing to train in further cosmetic dental treatments including his recent trip with Hassan to New York to train in Digital Smile Design.
- Hassan’s main focus has been in cosmetic smile makeover and orthodontic treatments, especially cosmetic adult orthodontics. Hassan has trained in orthodontics over a 3 year period under 2 separate orthodontic specialists. In 2015 Hassan also completed and was awarded a Merit for his Masters degree in restorative dentistry at the prestigious King’s College London giving him the ability to provide advanced cosmetic dental treatments. He was also awarded a Distinction for his research project in how to provide the ideal smile.
Together we have all the necessary skills to ensure we are providing the best possible treatment for our patients and we can provide the perfect smile for you. You can read the full biography for all of our dentists on our main website.
Planning for the future…
There is one word which sums up where the future of cosmetic dentistry is heading: ‘Digital‘
Creating a digital workflow is the next big evolution in cosmetic dentistry. The first step in this workflow is with Digital Smile Design. This allows us to assess the best way to transform your smile and the best part is that we can show you the end results before we begin any treatment. Yes, you read that correctly; we accurately show you how your new smile will look without even picking up a needle or a drill.
We are very excited by what the future holds and we are embracing it with open arms. We will continue to update our digital dentistry journey in our up coming blogs.
