James Goolnik, founder of Bow Lane Dental has just won the prestigious accolade of the fourth most influential person in dentistry for 2010, in the Dentistry top 50.
Our highest new entry for this year is James Goolnik, who was recently elected president of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD).
James qualified from Kings College in 1992 and has worked in the city of London since 1995. He has a masters degree in Conservative Dentistry from the Eastman Dental Institute and now practises all aspects of cosmetic dentistry with his multi-specialist team at Bow Lane Dental Group, where he is the principal and owner. The award-winning private practice has its own on-site dedicated dental laboratory.
He is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Association of Dental Implantology, the British Society Of Occlusal Studies and the British Dental Association. He is on the board of the British Dental Bleaching Society and trains members of the dental team in tooth whitening through his company Smiles by James.
James lectures internationally on the subjects of tooth whitening techniques, minimal invasive dentistry and marketing your practice. His profile is such that he is recognised as a top cosmetic dentist and writes for several magazines including Maxim, and has also been interviewed on many television and radio programmes.
In his new role at the BACD he plans to widen the scope and influence of the Academy, forging relationships with the entire dental community, not just in the cosmetic dental arena.
