DentalCarePlus dental implant clinics - Stephen Garner dentist

Having trained as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Stephen first placed implants into the facial bones and skull in order to support facial prostheses. From there he used dental implants to reconstruct jaws and teeth for patients following trauma and surgery for cancer ablation.

He has now placed upwards of eight thousand implants, restoring the vast majority of these himself, but also working alongside restorative specialists in the rehabilitation of complex cases. His is therefore a very restorative driven approach, and this together with his surgical background, allows dental restorations with excellent functional and aesthetic outcomes.

Stephen also enjoys teaching post graduate dentists in oral surgery and implant dentistry and brings this love of communication and mentoring to his work.
