Callum Youngson joined the Council as a non-executive director in July 2017 when he was appointed Chair of MPS’s subsidiary, Dental Protection Limited, having served on the Board of Dental Protection since 2014. His position on Council is ex officio and thus he is not elected by the membership.
He graduated as a dentist from Dundee in 1982, and then trained in various hospital and university posts at Leeds Dental School, becoming Senior Lecturer/Hon Consultant in Restorative Dentistry in 1997 and subsequently Head of Conservative Dentistry. In 2004, he was appointed Professor of Restorative Dentistry at Liverpool University and Head of the School of Dentistry from 2008 until 2017, where he taught the BDS Law and Ethics course.
Professor Youngson sits on a number of national committees in dentistry and has most recently chaired Dental Schools Council. He is currently the Head of the Institute of Clinical Sciences (incorporating the Schools of Dentistry, Health Sciences and Medicine) at the University of Liverpool. His long-term clinical interests lie in the failure of fixed prosthodontics, managing toothwear and the diagnosis of complex oro-facial pain.
