About me

Dr Malcolm Levinkind BDS, MSc, PhD, FDS RCS

After qualifying from University College Hospital in 1978, I spent a short period working in both the general practice and the hospital sector in the UK before moving to South Africa where I worked for two years in private practice. I returned to the UK to start my MSc in Paediatric Dentistry under Professor Winter at the Eastman Dental Hospital. Following which I spent over 12 years working as a full-time Lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer at the Royal London Hospital. As part of my duties I was in charge of the children’s dental trauma unit and the clinical aspects of the MSc in Paediatric Dentistry. In 1988 I was awarded the Colgate Prize for my research on “Electronic detection of dental caries”. As a clinical academic, I have published a number of research papers which you find listed under Publications.

Whilst still retaining my connection with The Royal London Hospital for a further two years on an honorary basis, I worked for Procter & Gamble as a Senior Dental Advisor. After leaving Procter & Gamble, I started my own Private Specialist Paediatric Practice as well as working part-time as a Senior Dental Officer, Paediatric Special Needs, in the Community Dental Service. I have now been in full-time, Private, Specialist Paediatric Practice since 1997. During this period I have also held the post of Honorary Senior Research Fellow at The Eastman Dental Institute.

In addition, I have also undertaken training in Osteopathic and Chiropractic techniques and work with complementary and conventionally trained clinicians to manage patients who require multi-disciplinary treatment.

I have two London-based practices: one in East Finchley and one in Harley Street and provide the full range of specialist paediatric dental care from routine primary care to comprehensive restorative and surgical treatment under general anesthesia.
