Nigel Hargreaves’ professional career began when he qualified as a dentist from Sheffield University in 1988 gaining the KaVo prize in oral surgery. He started advanced restorative dentistry training in 1999 and completed his Masters degree in Restorative Dentistry in 2005 at the Leeds Dental Institute.
Nigel Hargreaves has worked in private prosthodontic practice since 1995 and has received advanced training 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’s special interest is full arch dental implant reconstructions and regularly uses immediate loading techniques (“same-day-teeth”, “teeth-in-a-day”. “all-on-4”, “all-on-6”, “same-day-smiles”), to remove teeth, place dental implants and then in the same day, fit a full-arch fixed bridge, eliminating the need for any form of denture entirely.
Nigel has been involved in teaching and lecturing since 2003. Both as a national and international guest lecturer, but predominantly as part of his own teaching academy, which he founded in 2008. Here, Nigel has run restorative dentistry and dental implantology courses in a combination of formats, ranging from single day courses, to 12-month long modular courses. These courses are now being combined with the Yorkshire Dental Suite Academy, where we are able to offer courses in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Dental Implantology.
Nigel is a respected member of The British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The International Team for implantology, The Association of Dental Implantologists UK, The International College of Prosthodontists, The British Association of Private Dentists and The British Dental Association.
Away from dentistry, Nigel enjoys long walks in the countryside with his wife Donna and cockapoo Freddy. Nigel is also an untra-runner, running in trail races from 50km up to 100 miles.
