“Having come to Park from paediatric dentistry, Nathan has brought a different perspective to the clinic. His experience treating anxious children has improved the team’s communication and clinical skills. He’s also a very good golfer, which has helped me knock a few strokes off my handicap! ” ~ Dr Andrew Mcgregor, Owner Park Orthodontics.
Nathan was awarded his BDS qualification from Glasgow University in 2000.
He completed his vocational training in Bristol, working and gaining valuable experience in general dental practice during this time.
He then progressed to becoming an associate dentist in general dental practice.
Nathan went on to work and travel for several years, seeing different cultures and gaining a different perspective on dentistry.
Nathan worked in Gibraltar and Queenstown, New Zealand, where he worked closely with a specialist in oral surgery, further expanding his knowledge and skills.
In 2010 Nathan completed the Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery examinations of The Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow.
This allowed Nathan to become an honorary clinical teacher in paediatric dentistry at the University of Glasgow, where he helped to deliver clinical theory and techniques to the next generation of undergraduate dental students.
Nathan enjoyed his teaching and mentoring role and found it professionally rewarding to pass on and develop skills, knowledge base and attitude to the next generation of dentists to deliver high-quality, ethical patient care.
Nathan worked in the Scottish Public Dental Service and has experience working with anxious children and children with additional medical, learning, and behavioural needs.
In his role, he gained experience in delivering inhalational sedation services and dental treatment under general anaesthetic.
Nathan is glad to be part of the team at Park Orthodontics and is committed to his role within the team.
Nathan says that, undoubtedly, the whole team’s goal is to deliver high-quality orthodontic treatment to their patients, which Nathan prides himself on being a part of.
His career is now entirely focused on orthodontics only, and his desire to continue to learn is quenched by the fact that further postgraduate training in orthodontics is continual and lifelong.
When the chance arose to develop his skills further through mentorship at Park Orthodontics in a field of dentistry that he was very interested in, he grabbed the opportunity wholeheartedly.
Lifelong learning is integral to dentistry, and this opportunity allowed Nathan to develop his orthodontic knowledge and skills.
