Dr Rhodri Thomas

Undeniably committed to his career, Rhodri believes it is his background as an artist that has spurred on his love of aesthetic dentistry. As a landscape painter, his eye for colour and composition transfers from the canvas into his dental work, recreating the natural landscapes of the mouth. Rhodri lectures and teaches internationally on the subject of aesthetics, presenting at conferences or running courses across the globe, and publishes articles in leading dental magazines. 

He was the winner of British Society of Prosthodontics Heraues Kulzer Prize for his research on tooth wear and also pioneered a new resin layering technique. Rhodri has been the youngest ever speaker at the AACD, the youngest published author in the prestigious Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry, youngest speaker at the Masters of Masters Congress and has a record breaking six consecutive wins of best young dentist under 35 at British dental awards.

Alongside his clinical work, Rhodri is Clinical Director of the Lodge Dental Training Academy, a state of the art facility providing  courses for dentists and dental nurses. He is also the founder of ‘Art of Dentistry’ a series of unique training programs and aesthetic-based courses for dentists that run both at the academy and worldwide. He believes every clinician has a natural creative ability inside of them and enjoys nothing more than helping to ignite it.
