Dr Ken Harris

Dr Ken Harris’ Teaching Credentials

Dr Ken Harris is one of just three Fellows of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD, 2010), having already passed the Accreditation examination in 2007. He is currently an examiner for the BACD Accreditation Process.

Ken has participated in countless advanced dental education programmes at home and abroad. He has spent time with Dr Newton Fahl in Brazil and was, for many years, a senior UK clinical instructor for the Rosenthal Institute’s Aesthetic Advantage in London and New York.

Ken completed the arduous nine-stage continuum studying with Dr John Kois in Seattle in 2008, and the following year (2009), passed the examination to become the first UK Mentor at the prestigious Kois Center. He is a recognised dental teacher and lecturer and has written numerous articles in the dental press.

Most recently, Ken has obtained a Diploma of Fellowship of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) from the Royal College of Surgeons in London. Fellowship is the highest award offered by the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) of the Royal College of Surgeons and is a pinnacle of achievement for the profession. It merits the diversity of an individual’s expertise, encompassing their achievements in delivering excellence in primary dental care, their ongoing commitment to professional development and reflective practice, and their diligence in upholding the highest clinical standards.
