Tom Bereznicki

Tom graduated from Edinburgh in 1976, moved to London and worked at Guy’s and The Royal Dental Hospital before entering general dental practice in 1978. In 1982, he opened his own private practice as a ‘squat’ in Queensgate before moving himself and his patients to join Dawood & Tanner in January 2011. His Special Interests lie in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry but in particular Occlusion and Emergence Profile.

In October 2013 Tom was appointed as an Honorary Clinical Teacher one day a week in the Department of Primary Dental Care at King’s Denmark Hill, London. In January 2017 he was appointed as a Regional speaker to The BACD on the subject of Occlusion. In March 2017 he was co-opted to The Advisory Board in Primary Dental Care at The Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh. In June he was appointed as Co-ordinator of Extra-curricular Education to the Kings College Dental Students Society.

Originally he lectured on The Creation and Duplication of Emergence Profile but now primarily lectures on Restorative Aspects of Occlusion at postgraduate level. He also lectures at undergraduate level on a variety of topics in restorative Dentistry as well as mentoring younger dentists in their careers. He has had articles published both here in the UK and in The States.
