Maria, an experienced clinician, has been a general dental practitioner for 28 years and is successfully running her own Private Practice and training center, in Oxford, UK.
After graduating from Birmingham University in 1985, she worked in associate and locum positions, as well as running her own practice, since 1990. Maria's real interest in dental implants started in 1996 and she attended courses throughout the world, culminating in a Master's degree in Implantology at Lille University Medical School. She received her diploma in 2004. In 2006 Maria received a Certificate and Diploma of Honour for Clinical Radiological Anatomy of the head and neck.
Maria was the founder and former president of the Oxford Society of Oral Implantology, which was inaugurated in 2004; through this, she was heavily involved in mentoring postgraduate dentists in implantology. More recently she held a post as a clinical tutor on the Implant Masters programme at the University of Central Lancashire Preston. She now focuses on mentoring colleagues within her own training center.
In 2006, she decided to realize her dream of designing and creating her 'perfect' practice, incorporating purpose-built clinical and training facilities. It was with these thoughts in mind that the blueprint for the Clinic 95 was first conceived and the rules put in place for a truly state-of-the-art facility.
Maria is a Member of British Dental Association, Association of Dental Implantology, Joint Dental Faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Faculty of Dental Surgeons Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
