Nigel Hargreaves has worked in private prosthodontic practice since 1995 and has received advanced training in London, Austria, Italy, Portugal and the USA in the fields of Implantology, Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, by some of the worlds leading clinicians.
After initially spending several years at a leading referral practice in Manchester, Nigel then built up his own purely referral practice in West Yorkshire, providing all aspects of dental implant treatments, both surgical and restorative, along with all other aspects of prosthetic, prosthodontic and cosmetic dental treatments. Nigel’s passion is for both smile and functional reconstructions, whether using veneers, crowns, natural teeth or integrating dental implants where teeth are missing.
Nigel is able to offer block bone grafting and sinus grafting techniques to both his own patients when insufficient underlying bone is present for the use of dental implants and also to other local dentists and implantologists for these stages of treatment completing on their own patients. Nigel is currently undertaking the Royal College of Surgeons (Edin) Diploma in Implantology, the only recognized postgraduate qualification in dental implantology.
In 2007 Nigel formed the North of England Dental Academy, which is a dental education and teaching establishment for dental practitioners. The one-year restorative dentistry course revolutionized the teaching of dentistry in this country. The courses, based on practical skills using a tell-show-do style of teaching, have a firm belief that by understanding and learning effective evidence based techniques and being able to put them into practice under close supervision, will bring about a significant improvement in clinical skills, but most of all an increase in confidence.
Nigel is a respected member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The Academy of Osseointegration, The Association of Dental Implantologists UK, The International College of Prosthodontists, The British Society of Occlusal Studies and The British Dental Association.
