Developing a Core Outcome Set for Dental Traumatology

Dr. Peter Day qualified from Bristol in 1997. He spent two years in general practice and hospital dentistry in Newcastle and another year in Bolton as a senior house officer in oral and maxillofacial surgery. He started his specialist and academic training in Paediatric Dentistry in 2000 and has been in Leeds ever since. He earned a PhD in 2009 in the field of dental trauma. His PhD work included chapters investigating the design, development and assessment of a computer database for dental trauma (CDDT), a multi-centre randomised controlled trial of two root canal medicaments for the management of avulsed and replanted teeth and a Cochrane review of the avulsion literature.

In 2009 he took a six month sabbatical to work at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne before returning to England to take up a joint academic appointment with University of Leeds and Bradford Salaried Dental Service. He is an co-author of the latest IADT and BSPD guidelines on Tooth Avulsion. In the field of dental traumatology, he has contributed to European guidelines, Cochrane reviews, national e-learning teaching tutorials and over 15 peer-reviewed publications. He was elected as an IADT Director in 2012 and is currently chairman of the Research Committee.
