Dr Andrew Greenwood BDS (Birm)  Dental Surgeon GDC 50423

I qualified from Birmingham University with a degree in Dental Surgery in 1976. Within three years I opened Greenwod Dental Clinic in Rednal, and have been practicing from the same site to this date.

academy trainersDuring this time there have been many changes in the way we work and in the techniques and materials used. Especially in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics.

I have always tried to remain at the forefront of the changes by attending post graduate training both in this country and abroad, provided by acclaimed international experts.

I am also the only Gold member of the British Dental Bleaching Society in the West Midlands. This is a society which upholds the highest standards of quality in Teeth Bleaching and requires accreditation in order to be invited as a member.

I have also set up a training company, Academy for Facial Aesthetics to teach fellow Doctors, Dentists and Nurse Prescribers the art and science of both Botox and Dermal Filler injection techniques. Courses are available to both beginners and also  more experienced practitioners wishing to develop more advanced skills. I am also offering a Masterclass training course for those wishing to learn more about the ageing process, facial anatomy and the combined treatments that  we can employ to combat these issues.

I have been appointed as a CMT trainer for the renowned pharmaceutical company, Galderma, who manufacture the botulinum toxin Azzalure and the dermal filler range of Restylane. I have been asked to speak on their behalf and demonstrate at training workshops. I have also attended advanced anatomy training both in Nice with plastic surgeon, Dr Benjamin Ascher and facial plastic surgeon Dr Phillipe Kestemont; and at the Royal College of Surgeons in London under the guidance of Prof. Vichy Mahadeuan, professor of surgical anatomy, and Mr Dalvi Humza, plastic surgeon.

More recently I have become a key opinion leader for HA-derma manufacturers of the Aliaxin range of dermal fillers and the new and innovative Prophilo.

I am also a member of the expert group for ACE (aesthetic complications experts), and sit on the board of IAPCAM (International Association for the Prevention of Complications in Aesthetic Medicine)
