About the speaker

Phil Taylor

Phil Taylor

Dean Elect of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

Phil was appointed a consultant in 2003. He qualified in 1981 from Newcastle upon Tyne and spent the first 12 years in NHS General Practice in Northumberland.

In 1992 he had gained the MGDS RCS and decided to move to London to do the MSc Cons at the Eastman. There was no looking back.

By 1996 he had gained the MRD and by 2001 the FDS from Edinburgh. At that time he was running an MSc in Gerodontology at QMUL which led to him being the Course Director of the internationally recognised D.Clin Dent in Prosthodontics. The progamme has memorandum of agreement with RCS Edinburgh where he is an examiner for the M.Pros. He was made Senior Lecturer in 2008, Clinical Director in 2011 and Professor in 2017.

As Clinical Director he led the move to the first new traditional Dental School in 40 years, interestingly the last was Newcastle when he was an undergraduate.

His interests are around tooth wear and is the first dentist to be invited to sit on the NICE guidelines for eating disorders.

As an active member of the British Society of Prosthodontics he was President of that society in 2018/2019. He will retire from clinical practice in July 2020 and will become Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh from October 2020.
