Dr Colin Neil being interviewed for tips on finding an implant dentist oral surgeon:

Dr. Neil is experienced in providing oral surgery and in dealing with anxious patients, including gentle and empathetic treatment with optional oral and IV sedation available if required, having successfully helped many patients receive treatment when they would have otherwise struggled with anxiety, gagging or simply for enhanced patient comfort during longer procedures such as implant treatments, since Dr. Neil developed sedation skills while working as a senior house officer in Taunton Hospital and has completed the Diploma in Conscious Sedation course at Guy’s Hospital/King’s College, London. Dr Neil has also accepted the prestigious teaching roles of tutor for the Royal College of Surgeon’s Faculty Oral Surgery course and Lead Clinican for the University of Central Lancashire’s Conscious Sedation for Dentistry Certificate and Diploma postgraduate courses.
