Emily Pittard

Laboratory Director & Clinical Dental Technician (Denturist)

Emily is a fully qualified Clinical Dental Technician (Denturist), Dental Technician and Dental Nurse.

Emily qualified as a dental nurse in 2011 and dental technician in 2014. She has worked in a variety of dental practices in London, gaining experience in both NHS and private dentistry. Upon graduating Emily moved down to Dorset to continue advancing her knowledge and skills, taking further courses in impression techniques; photography; shade taking and bite registration to work within her full extended scope of practice.

As a clinician Emily has extensive experience working alongside specialist dentists with complex restorative cases and all types of denture cases. She has attended numerous courses on taking dental impressions using both the conventional methods and digital scanners and now works closely with local dentists to bring her extensive knowledge of dental prosthetics to benefit all patients.

As a technician Emily’s main focus of expertise is composite work; she takes great care in discussing with the patient the shade and tone of gum and tooth work in order to get an exact fit to that patient’s mouth and thus a more natural smile. She has also co-designed a revolutionary new implant technique which allows safe and predictable immediate loading of implants with a strong base.

Emily has a solid understanding of implants and has restored over 400 implant retained locator patients. Qualifying from the  Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) as a Clinical Dental Technician, Emily is now a member of the British Academy of Clinical Dental Technicians (BACDT) and the College of General Dentistry (CDT and DT faculty) and is part of a working group who are building and developing the role of the CDT and Dental Technician (DT) in the UK, shortly to become the Faculties inaugural Board.

Emily is also an Education Associate for the GDC which means she assesses dental education facilities across the country and is always up-to-date with the latest legal and clinical updates.

Emily can see patients direct for complete dentures; sports and mouth guards and on a dentist prescription for other dental devices. To book a free consultation with Emily please contact our reception at [email protected].

Outside of work, Emily enjoys creative writing (she is currently on her second book!), photography and travelling.

Clinical Dental Technician (UCLAN)

Emily qualified from the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) after attending the University of Central Lancashire to complete her qualification as a Clinical Dental Technician. Despite the complications of Covid-19, which meant she was one of the first clinicians in the world to go back to seeing patients post-lockdown (!) she passed with flying colours and is a firm favourite with our patients.

2017 – 2021

Dental Technician (with extended scope of practice)

For the last 4 years, Emily has developed a flair for gum characterisation and bespoke prosthesis as you can see from our laboratory page. Emily extended her scope of practice by successfully completing an impressions course from Kings College Hospital which means she can see patients for impression appointments. Emily has also taken further courses in accurate-shade-taking, dental photography and occlusal registration (getting your bite right) with the KSS Deanery Royal College of Surgeons. This allows her to see patients through some of their treatment with a dentists prescription.

Qualified Dental Nurse

Post qualification, although Emily enjoyed the day-to-day life of a nurse in dentistry, moving swiftly through the ranks to become lead dental nurse in her practice, she found herself more drawn to the creative side of dental technology. It was at that point that she decided to pursue a career as a technician, expanding her dental knowledge and skill base by going back to school to learn more about the restorative side of dentistry and how she can help patients achieve the look they want from their smile.
