A LEADING Scottish dental group has made a significant senior management appointment as part of its wider strategy to invest in transformational digital dentistry and drive exceptional clinical standards.
Clyde Munro has appointed Callum Graham to Head of Clinical and Digital Dentistry within the group. The newly formed role has been created to further reinforce Clyde Munro’s commitment to digital dentistry, innovation, and technology – positioning it firmly as a leader within the sector.
Clyde Munro has revealed over the last three years, it has made a significant investment of £2.5million in dental scanners, digital learning and development tools as well as an additional £1 million investment in its purpose-built training academy, Advanced Dentistry and Clinical Skills Centre, in Perth.
Dr Graham has been part of Clyde Munro since 2016 when he sold his practice to the group in a move that allowed him to refocus on clinical hours, passing the management of the practice onto Clyde Munro.
His newly appointed role will allow him to continue working in clinical environments, while exploring and testing cutting-edge digital technology for the group.
Callum Graham, Head of Clinical and Digital Dentistry, Clyde Munro said: “In the seven years I have been a part of Clyde Munro, I have seen the passion and commitment from across the teams to pursue digital dentistry, recognising the significant benefits it has for dentists and patients alike.
“We invest heavily in cutting-edge technology, digital scanners, on-site milling equipment but crucially, we invest heavily in training and development across the business to ensure our patients receive seamless, efficient care at every practice in Scotland.
“I’m really pleased to see this role being formed and delighted that I have been chosen to take the reins. Digital dentistry is going to revolutionise oral healthcare in Scotland, it’s more efficient, there is less room for human error and ultimately this will free up much needed capacity allowing us to provide more dentists appointments at a local level.”
Clyde Munro has set out an ambitious growth plan to reinforce its position as a digital dentistry trailblazer. Through its sector-leading training and development academy to its innovative outlook on the patient journey, Clyde Munro’s latest appointment is hoped to set a benchmark for dedicated digital dentistry resource and focus within the sector.
