Dr Mike Harrison
Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
Mike started his interest in dental genetics with studies into the molecular basis of hypodontia at the Institute of Child Health. He now runs a dental genetics clinic at St Thomas’ Hospital, attracting referrals from the South East region, and attends clinics in the Rare Diseases Centre for the national service for nucleotide excision repair disorders. Mike lectures internationally on dental care for children with genetic disorders.
He is on the medical advisory board for the UK Ectodermal Dysplasia Society and advises family support forums for a number of other syndromes affecting dentition. The growing skeletal dysplasia network in the London region is providing increasing opportunities for collaborative working across specialties and between institutions.
