|Ellis Paul, well known to many on GDPUK, has been awarded Fellowship from the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK). Dean Russ Ladwa told Ellis: ‘It is obvious for all to see that you have exceptional enthusiasm for your profession, and a willingness to help others along their chosen path. Your tireless work and support for dental practitioners to provide an improved quality of care for their patients is well known.”||
Ellis has enjoyed a distinguished career, and his continuing work in education and publishing sees his influence within the profession remaining strong. Having qualified from Manchester Dental School in 1955, Ellis established a dental practice that he later converted into an all-private practice, one of the few in the north.
He served in the north west branch of the BDA before becoming chair of its private sub-committee in 1993. He also served on the north west council for the FGDP.
His work in lecturing took on a more innovative approach and, in conjunction with his wife Jennifer, Ellis pioneered the concept of seated four-handed dentistry. They still continue to teach it today and he has written textbooks on the subject of correct posture and team dentistry.
