Neil Meredith

Professor of Dental Sciences |

Professor Meredith graduated from Guy’s Hospital in London. In 1988 Professor Meredith undertook further training to gain a Masters Degree in Crown and Bridgework at the Eastman Dental Institute in London. On completion, Professor Meredith stayed on at the University for six years as a lecturer.

In 1992, he completed his first PhD, in collaboration with Imperial College in London. Shortly after, he was recognised by the dental council as a specialist in both restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. It was during this time that Professor Meredith co-invented a technique called Resonance Frequency Analysis, or RFA, which is designed to measure the stability of implants. This technique is now considered an international benchmark among implant specialists. Soon after, Professor Meredith was awarded his second PhD, by the University of Gothenburg. In 1997 he moved on to take up the position of Chairman of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials at the University of Leeds.

In 2000, he founded the Neoss company (a widely recognised dental implant system), of which he was CEO until 2011. During this time, Professor Meredith has continued to practice clinically. At present, Professor Meredith is the Professor of Prosthodontics at James Cook University.

He has been treating patients with dental implants for 30 years and has always worked in clinical practice.

Professor Meredith is a member of the European Academy of Osseointegration, and the Academy of Osseointegration. His areas of ongoing research include clinical application of biomaterials and biomechanics, RFA developments and implant surface chemistry and physics. He has published 85 scientific papers, and is regularly invited to speak nationally and internationally.
