Mr. Abdul Haleem

Dentist

GDC: 65378 - BDS MGDS RCPS (Glasgow) Mr. Abdul Haleem

Abdul graduated from Glasgow University in 1990 and in 1996 he was one of the youngest dentists ever to achieve the MGDS postgraduate qualification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow.


Abdul joined the practice in 1991 and, after a brief period in the mid-1990s when he worked in two other Glasgow practices, returned to become a partner in 1997. Since then he has overseen major changes and expansion at the practice which has increased its capacity from a team of 5 to its current complement of 19.

Since 1998 he has continued to be extensively and closely involved with training and mentoring of recently qualified dentists.

His experience also includes a period as an Honorary Clinical Teacher of undergraduate dental students from 1991-1998 at the Glasgow Dental School. In 2001, Abdul became the youngest Dental Practice Advisor in Scotland for what is now NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board. Abdul is still involved in this post and visits and advises other dental practices on current guidelines and recommendations, and helps NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board to develop better links and services with the local population.

He also mentors and advises other dentists who are struggling with their clinical work or running their practices.

Abdul was honoured to be nominated for, and now acts as, the Chair of the National Dental Advisory Committee which is an advisory group comprising of the Chief Dental Officer, the Deans (Heads) of the Scottish Dental Schools, Education Chiefs and others that reports directly to the Minister for Health at Scottish Government.

He is also Chair of the Scottish Dental Vocational Training Committee which is responsible for the development, organisation and co-ordination of dental vocational training and general professional training in Scotland.

He is also a current member of the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Local Dental Committee.

Between 1998 and 2000, Abdul undertook orthodontic training at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley and since then has developed a special interest in restorative and cosmetic dentistry including the use of tooth-coloured fillings and porcelain veneers and crowns; all of which are involved in "smile makeovers" and "smile design".

Abdul is also using Inman Aligner and Six Month Smiles technology to help straighten front teeth in as little as 6 weeks as part of "smile makeovers".

Abdul has also undertaken further postgraduate training in the exciting field of dental implantology and has been mentored by prominent national figures with whom he retains close links.

This innovative technique can help replace missing teeth by using titanium "roots" supporting natural looking crowns and bridges to bring back your smile and chewing power to improve overall confidence.

Being the "oldie" in the practice, he has enjoyed looking after some of his patients for over 20 years and is happy to see new patients who are looking for an excellent level of care and attention.

Mr. Simon Kidd

Dentist

GDC: 114009 - BDS (Glasgow) Mr. Simon Kidd

Simon is our longest standing Associate Dental Surgeon having joined in 2007. After completing a year’s temporary post, he had made such a positive impression on staff and patients he was invited to stay permanently and he hasn’t looked back!


Simon trained and qualified at the University of Glasgow and has since gained membership to the Royal College of Surgeons attaining further joint qualifications from the Faculty of Dental Surgeons and the Faculty of General Dental Practice in 2010. These memberships require that clinical standards and training are tested against the highest standards. It also allows access to the most advanced training the UK has to offer with one of the world’s most respected medical professional bodies.

Anxiety management is something that we feel our practice excels in, and Simon plays a large role in this as one of our sedationists. Over recent years he has helped hundreds of ‘Dental Phobics’ achieve oral health with experienced use of sedative agents to allow them to float calmly and safely through all types of dental treatments they may have otherwise avoided.

On a less clinical front Simon is now studying for a Masters qualification in Medical Law and Ethics. This was a sparked by a general interest in the subject and may potentially lead to providing a more supportive role for colleagues in the profession.

Another of Simon’s focuses within the practice is with the provision of cosmetic dentistry.

‘’Whether it be the complex realignment of crooked teeth using the innovative ‘Six Month Smiles’ short term braces, or something as straight-forward as replacing dark fillings with tooth coloured alternatives, I always find the reward comes when the patient returns in 6 months with a beaming smile… actually happy to see their Dentist and show me how well they are doing’’

As well as being a full time Dentist at the Practice, Simon has also served as an elected member of the Greater Glasgow Local Dental Committee since 2013. This group of likeminded professionals serve to support Dentists in our local area and liaise with the governing bodies of the NHS. This helps ensure that the needs of our own patients are represented on a national level. 

When Simon isn’t here calming the anxieties of our patients, Simon can often be found putting his own nerves to the test. Now a qualified free-fall skydiver, one of his favourite pastimes is jumping out of airplanes!

Most importantly though, and aside from all these other interests, the main focus of Simon’s practise is and always will be to provide the highest level of care to his loyal patients and their families, ensuring their continued oral health.

‘’When I first joined the practice I was amazed by how loyal patients were to my predecessor. Generations of the same families had been coming for decades and I couldn’t believe that a modern and innovative practice could have such a deep rooted clientele. I had big boots to fill and am really touched that they have all stuck with me over the years and shown me the same loyalty.’’

Mr. Ian Cumming

Dentist

GDC: 191060 - BDS (Glasgow) Mr. Ian Cumming

Ian qualified from Glasgow Dental School in 2010 and spent the subsequent year with us at Complete Dentistry before gaining further experience in practices in Clydebank and the Glasgow city centre.


He gained the MJDF diploma at The Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2012 and earlier this year completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Conscious Sedation at Newcastle University, considered to be the gold standard in sedation training in the UK.

However, his greatest challenge recently has been in becoming a dad! When he finds time from changing nappies and singing nursery rhymes, he enjoys keeping active and plays football for a local Sunday league team.
