Simon qualified in Birmingham in 1991 and spent 3 years at Senior House Officer level and working part-time in general practice which continued through his postgraduate hospital training. In 1995 he commenced a 3-year position in the Department of Restorative Dentistry at Manchester Dental Hospital where he completed the Fellowship in Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and an MSc in Restorative Dentistry.

In 1998 he commenced a 5-year specialist-training pathway in Restorative Dentistry at Sheffield Dental Hospital and the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester. During this time he was awarded the Travel Fellowship by the British Society for the Study of Prosthetic Dentistry and visited the Oslo Cleft Team in Norway and the Branëmark Implant Clinic in Sweden. He also spent time with the Maxillofacial Prosthetist at the Morriston Hospital in Swansea and in conjunction with Leicester General Hospital became involved with the treatment of patients with Sleep Breathing Disorders. At the end of this pathway, in 2003, he completed the Specialist Fellowship in Restorative Dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and was accredited as an NHS Consultant and entered on the Specialist Lists in Prosthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry.

He was the Consultant in Restorative Dentistry at Torbay Hospital from June 2003 until December 2009 when he was appointed as the Consultant in Restorative Dentistry and Oral Rehabilitation at Poole Hospital to set up and run the restorative dentistry service for patients affected by head and neck cancer who are treated with surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

His philosophy is to offer an honest appraisal and advice to patients where there is uncertainty on how best to progress and provide specialist treatment when required and maintain close collaboration with the patient’s own Dentist for longterm care and maintenance.

Simon Ellis Case 2 – Failing bridge UR7-6-5-4-3 Patient was concerned about failing bridge on the canine unit. The case was managed with bridge sectioning to leave UR7-6 and extract UR3. We placed implants at UR5-3 for a three-unit screw-retained bridge UR5-4-3, with access for TePe brushing to maintain the soft tissues and implant health.
