A keen interest in the field of periodontology and implant dentistry have seen Dr Zurdo attend several courses over the years in order to hone his skills, including a course in periodontics at the University of Texas, Houston and a research Masters Degree at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. This enthusiasm and endeavour was acknowledged by the General Dental Council in 2002, when he officially became a Specialist in Periodontics.
Dr Zurdo’s chief areas of interest are periodontal disease, implant dentistry, regeneration and aesthetic soft tissue manipulation. He now imparts his skills and expertise to other dentists hoping to enter this field at the Institute for Postgraduate Education, University of Central Lancashire, as an education principal of the MSc in Clinical Periodontology and senior lecturer in the MSc in Dental Implantology.
For many, gum disease and other oral health related problems can be a highly sensitive issue, but in Dr Zurdo patients are able to find someone who they feel free to communicate their problems to, a feat achieved due to the fact that Dr Zurdo is able to combine his wealth of qualifications and expertise with patient care of the highest level.
