    Dr. Liam McGrath
    In 1994 I moved from Omagh to Liverpool to study dentistry, and after a rigorous five year course graduated and got right to work in general practices. I went on to become a partner in an NHS practice before moving on to more advanced aesthetic dentistry such as veneers, crowns, smile makeovers and gum lifts.

    Dentists never stop studying, and during my further training I met some peers who introduced me to dental implants. I was immediately struck by the quality of the results achieved and the truly transformative effect it had on the lives of patients. I knew I had found the area I wanted to specialise in.

    I travelled the world learning from the very best in implant dentistry, first training in Manchester before doing courses in New York, Florida and Virginia before coming back across the pond to study in Europe. I absorbed everything I could from leading dentists such as Dennis Tarnow, Maurice Salama, Michael Pikos and Tidu Mankoo. If you’re reading this as a patient, those names probably mean nothing to you, but if you’re a dentist then you know what an honour it is to have trained with them.

    Once I was confident in my ability and expertise, I opened my own referral practice to focus solely on implant dentistry. I since have the honour to be one of the select few awarded the highly acclaimed Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. I’ve gone on to perform over 3000 implants on more than 2000 patients and offer advice, training and referral services for dentists across the UK.

    I have worked with over 40 dentists over eight years of accepting implant referrals and I am now based at McGrath Dental in Hoylake, Wirral and travel to several other practices on a monthly basis. Most dentists I work with are general dentists who restore the implants he has placed on their own patients. With running my own customised “Synergy Training Programme” I have created an avenue for general dentists with little or no implant experience to firstly attract implants to their practices, plan cases and then restore their own case in a predictable manner. Synergy Training Programme (STP) offers interactive and comprehensive training in all aspect of restorative implant dentistry. This educational continuum provides the tools, skills and confidence to successfully incorporate and grow the dental implant segment of the restorative practice. The programme focuses on diagnosis, treatment planning and the definitive restoration by following patients through the dental implant process during the course of the programme.

    I now work closely with practices in Newcastle, Chester, Liverpool, Wrexham and Anglesey to treat their own patients and accept referrals from other local practices.

    I am a Key Opinion Leader for Biomet 3i Implants for CT guided surgery and treating terminal dentitions with immediate fixed restorations. He lectures nationally to other dentists on surgical and restorative aspects of Implant Dentistry.

    In my career I’ve found the main thing holding back dental implants is a lack of information or the wrong information being given, so I’ve prepared this guide to introduce you to dental implants, their benefits and the service I provide
