Professor Steve Creanor

Emeritus Professor

Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry (NC)

Role

Clinical Professor of Oral Sciences

Steve was appointed the inaugural Director of Undergraduate Dental Studies and Professor of Oral Sciences at Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry in November 2006.  He was born in a small mining village just outside Edinburgh and graduated in dentistry from the University of Glasgow in 1980, thereafter taking up house officer, resident senior house officer and registrar jobs in oral and maxillofacial surgery. He was awarded a scholarship with Unilever where he went on to gain a PhD in 1987 for studies into fluoride biochemistry and early enamel lesion remineralisation. 

As part of his research project, he was one of two principal examiners involved in what was at that time the largest dental epidemiological survey of its kind, and involved the clinical and radiographic examination of over 3,000 school children in and around Glasgow.  Throughout that 3-year period, Steve opted also to spend 2 sessions per week in general dental practice.  He was appointed to a Clinical Lectureship in Oral Sciences in Glasgow in 1987 and was promoted to Clinical Senior Lecturer in 1990, where he remained before being appointed to Peninsula College of Medicine & Dentistry in 2006.

Steve’s main teaching interests are in clinical oral biology, where he is involved in the teaching of the human dental tissues, both hard and soft, as well as saliva, salivary glands, caries and dental erosion.  Steve is the editor of a new textbook, due out in early 2016, for undergraduate and postgraduate students in dentistry, within the Wiley-Blackwell Essentials Series – the first undergraduate textbook of its type within undergraduate dentistry or medicine – entitled Essential Clinical Oral Biology.

Steve referees for a number of high profile dental journals, as well as for the Medical Research Council, the Wellcome Trust and the National Institute for Health Services Research.  

He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK), a Member of the Faculty of General Dental Practice at the Royal College of Surgeons (Eng) and has an invited entry in Who’s Who in the World 2011.  Steve has supervised 6 PhD’s and 14 MSc’s Higher Degree Research Projects and has over 150 publications – ranging from refereed scientific papers, books, book chapters, reviews and refereed published abstracts of national and international research meetings.  Steve’s research interests include dental erosion and dental caries and he continues his interest in fluoride’s influence on caries dynamics.
