Dr. Aubrey Everson
“Dental treatment choice should not be complicated, ask yourself if this is me or my daughter, what choice will I make.”
After obtaining my degree, I joined the SA Defense Force, which was compulsory. I had a special interest in cosmetic and surgical dentistry and had the privilege to work with and assist numerous specialists, and obtained a lot of hands-on experience in various surgical procedures.
During my career as a dentist I have gradually focused more on surgical procedures. I have successfully placed in excess of 3000 implants. In order to maximize my success rate, I have attended numerous courses. I have joined the MSc team at the University of Warwick and have successfully completed their modules in advanced grafting and bone augmentation.
I have attended a resident clinic – Dr. Paulo Malo (Lisbon, Portugal) where I have been trained in the Nobel Guide system and completed a full hands-on course on the All-On-Four technique. I have implemented this knowledge in my surgery and this has contributed to the high success rate I have been achieving.
I have also attended the Simplant Academy’s software training course. I use their system extensively in the preparation and planning of cases. I often make use of their supported guides when placing implants.
I am currently an active member of the Association of Dental Implantology. I am closely involved in this organization and feel that this is an excellent way of staying well informed on current and future techniques and developments in Implantology.
I have gained a good reputation regarding my surgical techniques and ethos and I am placing implants regularly on a referral basis.
I have attended numerous courses on aesthetic smile design and have done in excess of a 250 smile design cases. Many of these were done under guidance of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
During my compulsory National Service I was based in Pretoria, South Africa, and was promoted to Head Dentist of the Liberty Life Dental Clinic. My duties included attending all meetings and overseeing all staff related issues, as well as making sure that the clinic operated economically. As a dentist, I benefited tremendously from my association with this clinic. It gave me the opportunity of exposure to almost every aspect of
dentistry ranging from dental and surgical conditions and their treatments through to administrative aspects.
In private practice I had to deal with all aspects of running and managing a practice. I supervised stock ordering and dealt with all administrative aspects of private practice including staff related aspects, reconciling medical aid statements and paying of creditors as well as writing letters of motivation for treatment plans.
In addition to the above, I have successfully managed our NHS practice in the UK: administration and staff.
