Jose Lopez Pan
Jose qualified in Madrid in 2005 and worked for a while in his home town of La Coruña on the North-West coast of Spain. During his degree he was awarded with a Diploma of Internal Student of Medical Orofacial Pathology, which saw him lecture in both national and international congresses. Jose has always had a genuine passion for dentistry and a willingness to help wherever possible. Whilst studying, he volunteered to take part in a project which led him to Nicaragua in Central America. The project ‘Dentist Without Borders’ aims to provide free dental care to as many less privileged people around the world and works on the ethos that everybody deserves to have access to dental care.
After finishing his degree he went to Cuba on a course in oral surgery, getting experience in surgical extractions and dental implants. Jose moved to United Kingdom in July 2006, working in NHS and private practices in Cardiff, Plymouth, Ashburton. Since then he has studied different postgraduate courses to deliver high quality dental treatment in dental implants, periodontology and oral surgery, gaining a Diploma in Oral Surgery (Centro Medico Teknon, Barcelona 2007), a Certificate in Implant Dentistry (University of Seville 2007) and a Masters Degree in Dental Implants and Periodontology (University of Alcala, Madrid 2013).
Jose worked in Cardiff for one year, before moved to Plymouth where he met his wonderful wife. He has since been enjoying the lifestyle that accompanies Cornish life. Jose spends much of his free time with his three children, who keep him very busy. When he does find a spare minute, he likes to keep active and enjoys spending time swimming, cycling and playing basketball with his close friends.
