Helen Young Image

Helen qualified from Dundee in 1979. After spending six years honing her skills in oral surgery in a hospital setting she travelled extensively around the world for several years, working periodically.  

On returning Helen went into general practice in Edinburgh, while retaining her interest in oral surgery, both in the dental practice and at the dental hospital. She performs all aspects of dentistry and has undertaken further training in several areas. Her interests lie in cosmetic restorative work and oral and implant surgery.

Outside of Bite Dentistry, Helen is a senior Clinical Lead with the dental charity Bridge2Aid. This totally voluntary work involves travelling out to Tanzania annually to teach rurally based doctors the basic and vital skills of dental local anaesthesia and extraction of teeth. In her spare time, she also likes gardening, diving, walking and going a bit faster by getting on her motorbike!
