Pete qualified as a Dental Technician in Sheffield in 1996 and started work in a small prosthetic laboratory. Keen to broaden his experience he then joined the British Army working as a Dental Technician and served for six years. He then moved to New Zealand working in a small laboratory attached to a busy surgery. While working in New Zealand he developed a real passion for patient empowerment and educating the team with the different materials and techniques available. He also got his first exposure to the two worlds of implantology and digital dentistry, and saw straight away they worked hand in hand. Upon moving back to the UK Pete has worked in two other laboratories in Bristol until starting Artisan Dental Studio.
Whilst working in Bristol Pete has really focused his work around implant and complex crown & bridge work. He has been involved in implants & digital dentistry since 2003 and is a Straumann Platinum technician, having experience with many different systems. He has developed his understanding of how tissue reacts to abutments, has produced an array of bars and beams for full arch restorations. This is one area Pete has really enjoyed, from simple acrylic wraparounds to 2 part full contour zirconia bars with attachments. Pete has a belief now there is no limit to dentistry with sound planning and access to the best materials.
