Haidar Hassan

Dr Hassan graduated from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and went on to complete two master’s degrees – one in oral implants in Spain and the other in aesthetic medicine in the UK. He has since completed PhD in oral microbiology and immunology, which was awarded in Sweden. Dr Hassan is a senior clinical lecturer at the European Oral Implantology MSc Program at University King Juan Carlos, Madrid and a substantive clinical lecturer and module lead in aesthetic medicine, Centre for Cell Biology & Cutaneous Research, Blizzard Institute, Queen Mary University of London. He is a visiting clinical researcher at the Department of Natural Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology, Middlesex University (London).

Dr Hassan has a diploma in dental implantology from the Royal College of Surgeons (England) and a diploma of membership at the Faculty of Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (Glasgow). In 2016, Dr Hassan was awarded a Fellowship of International Academy of Dental Implantology (IADI) and a Mastership in 2018.

He is a member of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI), International Association for Dental Researcher (IADR), British Council of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) and Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP). Furthermore, he was awarded the 1st British Council of Aesthetic Medicine Research Award in 2019 for his clinical paper on “Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (i-PRF) in Aesthetic Medicine – a prospective consecutive cases audit of outcome”.

He frequently attends and speaks at oral research congresses and aesthetic medicine meetings. His areas of research interest are oral microbiology, peri-implantitis, regenerative treatments/materials and platelet-based growth factors such as PRF/ PRP. His research has been published in various peer-reviewed journals:
