Andrew Keeling


Andrew gained a BSc at the University of Bristol in 1996, and his BDS in 1999. He obtained his MFGDP from the Royal College of Surgeons, London in 2007. His PhD (Leeds 2016) was in the field of restorative digital dentistry, specifically related to occlusion. After spending over 10 years in full-time general practice, Andrew took a full-time post at Leeds School of Dentistry in 2011, where he divides his time between research, treatment and teaching. His research interests focus on providing affordable and accurate digital solutions to common clinical problems, and in implementing novel technologies for the delivery of dental education.
