Cemal Ucer runs a full time national referral centre at ICE Hospital after previously running the Manchester Dental Implant Clinic which he established in 1995.

He was awarded an MSc in implantology at Manchester Dental Hospital following his research into guided bone regeneration and osteopromotion in 1995. Later, he has gained a PhD from the University of Manchester for his clinical and laboratory studies into the factors affecting the success of implant treatment in iliac grafts and the investigation of the effect of skeletal bone density on implant survival. Since 1994, he has been clinical director of the Multi-System Dental Implantology Certificate Course at Trafford General Hospital during which time he has personally trained and mentored more than 600 dentists.

His current clinical research interests include immediate implant placement and the effect of bone density on success of implant treatment. Academically, he has gained European recognition for his work in development of a new framework for teaching and assessment of clinical competencies in implantology. He is a co-author of the consensus paper produced by the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE) following the first pan-European collaboration between EU Universities to establish common training and assessment standards in dental implantology. Cemal is one of the chief clinical investigators of a five year multi-centre international research project investigating the immediate implant placement technique using Straumann/TE implants.

He is a member of the British Association of Oral Surgeons, British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, British Dental Association, Association of Dental Implantology (UK), and a Fellow of the Manchester Medical Society. He has had the honour of being the North West England representative on the National Board of Association of Dental Implantology (UK) and the President-Elect of the ADI (2011-2013), a highly esteemed and coveted position. Cemal is a Fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), Editor-in-Chief of the ARK - the ADI on-line Education Programme - and ADI Director of Research with the responsibility of organising multi-centre research projects in dental practices.
