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 and then ended my studies back across the pond 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 am a Key Opinion Leader for Biomet 3i Implants for CT guided surgery and treating terminal dentitions with immediate fixed restorations.
When I am not in the practice, my time is mostly spent with my wife and two sons. We enjoy spending our holidays in the Southern Alpes in France. We have had some fantastic summer and winter vacations there, the scenery is amazing and there are lots of activities to do.
