Title: The use of Bioactive products in Dentistry: A review

David Gillam

Queen Mary University of London, UK


I graduated from Edinburgh Dental School in 1977 and subsequently gained experience as a Dentist both in general practice, the Armed Forces and Community Dental Services before undertaking an MSc in Periodontology in 1986-1988 at Guy's Dental School London. I subsequently worked at the Eastman Dental Institute for Oral HealthCare Sciences in London (1989-1998) where I was involved in laboratory and clinical research, as well as teaching postgraduate students in Periodontology. On leaving the University environment in 1998 I worked in Industry for several years (1998-2001) initially with SmithKline Beecham (Assistant Director in Oral care), and subsequently with Block Drug Company, Incorporated, USA (Assistant Director in Oral Care). From 2003 to 2008 I worked with a Clinical Research Organisation as a Senior Clinician conducting clinical studies on oral care products. I am currently employed as a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Periodontology at the Bart's and the London Medical and Dental School QMUL in London (2009-). My main interests are in the area of the Management of Dentine Hypersensitivity and I collaborate with Professor Robert Hill in the development of innovative oral care products, for example, novel bioactive glasses, hydroxyapatite toothpastes and mouthwashes for the treatment of various dental conditions. To date I have published over 60 papers on a number of dental topics.
