Dr Patrick Holmes - Immediate Past President

Image of Patrick Holmes, Executive Council, British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry

I qualified from Birmingham University in 1991, and very quickly undertook a couple of year programmes in both restorative and implant dentistry.

In addition to these I went to many, seemingly random courses. I was truly a very general practioner.

That all changed in 2000, when I attended my first BAAD meeting. Up until then I thought I was an "Aesthetic" practioner, but I realised that there was so much more.

I left the meeting committed to a distinct and well defined goal; to try to emulate the exceptional work I had seen.

I decided to change the way I practiced. I bought and renovated a building and was fortunate to find some colleagues who were able to help me.

In 2007 I was able to hand over endodontics, periodontics, surgical dentistry and implant placement, allowing me to concentrate on the aesthetic/restorative field.

I completed a Post Grad Certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry, and have lectured for several companies on the field. I have even had the pleasure of winning several awards.

I really feel that the consistent core of these achievements has been the British Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry.

Outside of dentistry I enjoy motorsports, running and skydiving.
