GDC no 75814

Eman was first registered with the GDC in June 1999 following her graduation from Glasgow University school of dentistry with commendation.

She returned to Glasgow to carryout a number of senior house officer jobs in various specialties in dentistry including oral and maxillofacial surgery. In 2003 she started her three year specialist training in orthodontics at Kings College hospital in London and the royal surrey hospital in Guildford. At the latter she was lucky to attend the cleft lip and palate joint specialty clinics on monthly basis, and experience that was not available to many of her peers. She graduated with Masters degree from King’s College London University. Eman has worked with children for many years and she enjoys continuing to do so as an orthodontist.

She is also a clinical supervisor at Edinburgh Dental Institute EDI, training young orthodontic trainees and Edinburgh University Masters students. She believes strongly in continuous professional development of herself and staff alike, hence she ensures that staff are able to attend courses and study days that enrich their knowledge and improves their skills. Eman is a member of many professional bodies and sits on some of their council committees.

Outside orthodontics, she enjoys spending her time with her husband, children and friends.

Jenny graduated from Newcastle University in 2000 and worked in Newcastle Dental hospital and in General practice in Gateshead, fulfilling requirements for General Professional training. She completed Membership in the Faculty of Dental Surgery examinations with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2002. She then worked in the Community Dental service before moving to Edinburgh to study Orthodontics. Her Orthodontic training took place in Edinburgh Dental Institute and the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy. As part of specialty training she did a Masters in Clinical dentistry (Orthodontics) with Edinburgh University. She passed her Membership in Orthodontics examinations in 2006 with the Royal College of surgeons of Edinburgh. She did further training in the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy and Dundee Dental Hospital in order to become a Consultant Orthodontist in the hospital service, successfully completing Fellowship examinations in 2010.

Jenny was appointed to a Consultant post at Edinburgh Dental Institute in 2011 and provides orthodontic treatment for patients requiring multidisciplinary care. Her special interest is providing orthodontic treatment for people with hypodontia or missing teeth. She takes part in teaching and training within EDI and examines for RCS Edinburgh.

What all this means is that our orthodontists are a highly trained and experienced Specialist in Orthodontics. All they do is orthodontics. They don’t offer the services your general dentist does i.e. No fillings, no crowns or bridges, no root canal treatment, no partial or full dentures, no scale and polishes, no check ups, not even implants. Just braces. So if you are going to get your teeth straightened make sure you seek the expertise of someone who is a Specialist in moving teeth like Eman and Jenny.
