About Dr James Bough

James qualified from Newcastle University with Merit in Clinical Dentistry in 2007 and was awarded the John Hopkins prize for his support for fellow colleagues. James has undergone and continues to undergo extensive postgraduate training and education in several countries, with world leaders in their field.


“I have a passion for dentistry and I want to provide my patients with the highest standard of care that I can, using the most modern techniques available”.


James has completed dental implant courses at the Sheffield Implant Centre, Newcastle Dental Hospital and at the Campbell Academy in Nottingham. To compliment this training, James has travelled to the highly respected “Urban Regeneration Institute” in Budapest, to undertake advanced training in bone and soft tissue regeneration. James has also travelled to Munich to train at the world renowned Hurzeler and Zuhr Dental Education Institute.  As part of this training, James underwent training on microsurgical techniques for soft tissue treatment and regeneration.


“In order to get the best results in dental implant treatment, it is managing the bone and soft tissues that are the most important. This is why I have travelled so extensively to learn advanced techniques for bone and soft tissue management”.


James completed the two year Diploma in Restorative Dentistry, which provides the skills and knowledge for advanced treatments for the most complex of cases.


“Restorative treatment and its principles provides the foundation for all treatments, ranging from simple to complex and is essential for providing successful treatment”.


Dentists regularly refer patients to James for dental implant and restorative treatments.


James has also completed the Core Course in Conscious Sedation at Newcastle Dental Hospital, the Inman Aligner course and Six Months Smile course and will provide orthodontic treatment with clear aligners.
