Congratulations Dr Halley….MSc!

By Phil / April 18th, 2012


At Cherrybank Dental Spa, we never stop learning….

The results are in – and we are very proud to announce that (20 years after graduating from dental school – shhh!!)  Dr Elaine Halley has passed her Masters of Science Degree with flying colours – a distinction no less! The degree, from the University of Manchester,  was the first of  it’s kind in many ways. It is the first time that the word ‘Aesthetic’ has been recognised in a UK University post-graduate dental qualification – the title is Masters in Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry. It is also the first time that there has been a collaboration with a digital learning company and a UK University to deliver a post-graduate degree level course. This meant that many of the lectures were delivered via the internet with guest lecturers who are experts in their field from around the world. This suited the mother-of-three working dentist as it meant that most of her study could be done in her own time rather than entirely based at a Dental School.

The degree was based on clinical work and residential courses were held in Manchester Dental School. So – Dr Halley is among the first students to graduate from this state-of-the-art degree, and as far as we know, the only one to attain a distinction. We are very proud. A brilliant testament to her clinical skills and the combination of study and learning ensures that our patients continue to be offered the very latest in dental treatment backed by the latest scientific evidence and preventive know-how.

‘I would like to thank all my patients who gave their permission for me to photograph and submit their cases as part of this course. In particular, my dental nurse Rosswen who was my complex case. I had to present Rosswen’s case in front of all the students and defend my clinical decisions. Rosswen underwent a lengthy treatment plan involving braces and veneers to improve a crossed arrangement of her teeth at the front of her mouth. ‘I had always wanted to have my teeth sorted but didn’t think it was possible, until I started working for Dr Halley and she found a way. Now, I am delighted with my smile!’

Congratulations Dr Halley!

Dr Halley is available for consultations in Edinburgh and Perth.
