Colin Levey qualified from Dundee School of Dentisry with a BDS in 2011.  He intercalated as an undergraduate dental student and gained a first class honours degree (BMSc) in Anatomy with Forensic Anthropology in 2008.  He passed the membership examinations (MFDS) at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow whilst completing foundation training posts (VT and DF2) in Edinburgh and Glasgow.  

Colin worked in the restorative, orthodontic and paediatric departments at Glasgow Dental Hospital before returning to Dundee to take up his current post as Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry in 2014.

In addition to teaching and research commitments, Colin is undertaking higher specialist training in Restorative Dentistry. In this capacity, he is the trainee representative for the British Dental Association on the BMA Scottish Junior Doctors Committee.

Colin is completing a PhD under the supervision of Professor David Ricketts and Professor Jan Clarkson developing a Core Outcome Set (COS) for caries management clinical trials.  Colin is the early career academic representative on the School of Dentistry research committee.

 

Colin is completing a PhD under the supervision of Professor David Ricketts and Professor Jan Clarkson developing a Core Outcome Set (COS) for caries management clinical trials.  Working with colleagues in Dundee and Berlin, he is leading on a consensus exercise involving patients and professionals to agree which outcomes should be routinely measured in such trials.  Colin has presented work related to this at two IADR congresses as well as ORCA 2018.

Colin is a clinical supervisor of BDS students on the Conservation and Integrated Oral Care departments at Dundee Dental Hospital and School. 

He is co-lead of the dental local anaesthesia course delivered to early clinical students.  This teaching involves the use of Theil embalmed cadavers which retain their flexibility, allowing students to practise these techniques before providing them as part of clinical care within the hospital.  This has eliminated the practising of such techniques on peers at Dundee Dental School.  Colin has contributed to poster presentations about this work at ADEE and IADR congresses.

Colin sits on the project management group for the new 4D curriculum.
