MEET THE TEAM AT EGT

Dentists

  • AXEL DREWS

    PRINCIPAL DENTIST

    PhD 2006 GER
    GDC 128693

    Dr Drews graduated in 2005 from the prestigious University of Mainz, Germany, and completed his PhD allowing him the title of Dr.med.dent. the following year.

    He has since furthered his career by uniquely combining most aspects of modern and traditional dentistry, allowing him to pick and choose treatment options for his patients with a deep insight into all the specialities available in dentistry. He is able to offer high quality full mouth restorative dentistry, with or without dental implants. If implant placement is not the patient’s preference, or the risk of surgery outweighs the benefit, he offers a combination prosthesis using telescopic crowns (or German Crowns), the gold standard treatment in Germany prior to dental implants and still offering an advantage in some cases.

    Dr Drews is a strong believer in quality over quantity. He has chosen to only use products where he would be happy to use such products on himself or his family. As such he uses Straumann and ASTRA dental implants, two of the top five brands of dental implants globally, which are supported by many years of scientific research evidence. In addition, he uses Invisalign and C-fast aligners in orthodontic treatment for similar reasons. Crown and bridgework is sent to a trusted dental laboratory with a German Master Technician who reliably produces high quality work every time.

    Dr Drews travels internationally to gather the best information available from courses and dental conventions. He is a member of the British Dental Association (BDA), German Dental Association (FVDZ), and the International Team of Implantology (ITI).

Reception

  • ELAINE ALLAN

    RECEPTIONIST

    Elaine has enjoyed working as a Dental Receptionist for the past 15 years, mainly within private dentistry and prides herself in making the whole patient journey as comfortable as possible.

    The main attraction to this role for Elaine has always been meeting and greeting people from all walks of life and establishing relationships in order to make them feel at ease. It certainly helps that she is a little dental phobic herself, therefore can understand the possible apprehension when initially walking through the door!

    Elaine joined Edinburgh Gums and Teeth in February 2019 and loves being part of the well-established team, and is excited to see the practice continue to grow.

    Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and taking long walks with her daughter’s dog. She is also a keen boxing fan (spectator only!) and is new to yoga but enjoying giving it a go.
