Dr. Robert Bolt is Clinical Lecturer and registered Specialist in Oral Surgery. He is both medically and dentally qualified and is Director of the University of Sheffield “One-to-One” dental implantology course. Dr. Bolt is also lead for the University of Sheffield’s undergraduate dental implantology curriculum, and delivers a number of lectures and practical classes to both undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout the year.
In addition to clinical implantology, Dr. Bolt has several research interests including pre- & peri-operative anxiety management, HPV-related oropharyngeal carcinoma, in-vitro 3D models of the implant-bone-mucosa interface, and analysis of the tumour microenvironment. He undertook a PhD investigating the role of the tumour microenvironment in HPV-related oropharyngeal carcinoma, from which he received the BOSDR Senior Colgate Prize in 2015. His current grant income includes the £1.65 million NIHR HTA “MAGIC” trial to assess the role of melatonin in managing preoperatively-anxious children, and a Royal College of Surgeons FDS Grant to assess the use of extracellular vesicles in the early detection of oropharyngeal carcinoma.
Dr. Bolt is very happy to offer an appointment if you are considering dental implants as an option for replacing missing teeth, or for supporting an unstable denture.
