Principal Dentist and Practice Owner
Ian Bellamy is a member of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI), the European Association of Osseointegration (EAO), the Faculty of General Dental Practice (Royal College of Surgeons of England) and the British Dental Association (BDA).
Having achieved an honours degree in microbiology with microbial genetics, Mr Bellamy studied dentistry at Dundee University, qualifying in 1991. He studied further in implants and advanced restorative dentistry and began placing implants on taking over the Aquae Sulis practice in 1998. Since then he has restored over 1,000 cases.
Mr Bellamy’s career has seen him study with world leaders in implantology in both Europe and the US, including at the internationally renowned Branemark clinic in Gothenburg. He is one of very few dentists to complete the exacting diploma in implant dentistry at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. In doing so he gained the advanced certificate in bone manipulation and regeneration.
Mr Bellamy has taught and mentored other dentists for many years in implantology and accepts referrals from many dental colleagues in the South West. He also works closely with the dental industry and has been instrumental in developing the latest CT scanner from Carestream. His recent work is in the exciting field of digital intraoral scanning, a technique for studying the mouth that avoids the need for dental impressions.
