Dr. Nigel D. Robb, TD, Reader/Honorary Consultant in Restorative Dentistry for the University of Bristol School of Oral and Dental Sciences, has been named Top Professional of the Year in Restorative Dentistry for 2016-2017 by the International Association of Top Professionals! 

While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction.

His expertise and experience led him to build the BUOLD program to become the most successful post-registration qualification in the United Kingdom, with nearly 1000 UK dentists holding the Diploma.

Dr. Robb earned his Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Edinburgh in 1982 and he received his PhD for a thesis entitled “Epidemiological Studies of Toothwear” from the University of London in 1992.

Looking back, Dr. Robb attributes his success to his driving desire to further the knowledge and understanding of pain and anxiety control in dentistry.
