Dr Mervyn Druian caused a phenomenon in UK dentistry when back in 1983 he became the first UK dentist to introduce the practice of porcelain veneers.

Since then Mervyn’s cosmetic and aesthetic work has become internationally renowned and he frequently lectures and teaches around the world. Not only is Mervyn recognised by his peers as one of the leading innovators, but he is often heralded by beauty editors as “the leading expert in cosmetic dentistry” and was the principle dentist on Extreme Makeovers UK.

The man behind many famous and beautiful smiles, Dr Mervyn Druian was the first UK dentist to complete the Aesthetic Advantage Programme at the Advanced level with Dr. Larry Rosenthal in New York. He was then instrumental in launching it with Dr Rosenthal in the UK, running courses for dentists in Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, and Mervyn is the UK arm of Larry’s elite team of instructors.

In 1990 Mervyn introduced the first power whitening system into the UK and has become a leading exponent of in-surgery tooth whitening.

In 2016, Mervyn became a Fellow of the American Society of Dental Aesthetics and this year sees Mervyn become the honoured International President of the Alpha Omega Dental Society. Only the second European dentist in the society’s 110 year history.

Previously President of the Alpha Omega Dental Society, Mervyn has this year become the honoured International President of the Alpha Omega Dental Society.

Dr Mervyn Druian becomes this year's international president of the Alpha Omega Dental Society

Mervyn is delighted to have become the honoured International President of the Alpha Omega Dental Society (AO) for 2017.

Previously President Elect of the AO, Dr Druian has received this outstanding honour, in the words of the Alpha Omega Society, “In recognition of his devoted service as Chairman of the London Chapter, as a member of the Charitable Trust, and as a past International Director: and of his lifelong commitment to promoting the tenets of the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity: fraternalism, professionalism and commitment to Judaic values.”

Dr Druian is only the second European in the society’s 110-year history ever to be bestowed with this accolade and is very proud to be part of the organisation that was started all those years ago, by dental students in Baltimore who wanted to stand up to anti-Semitism, discrimination and racism; causes which the AO continues to fight for.

Dr Omer K Reed, Dr Mervyn’s mentor and dental pioneer, was in attendance to see him honoured and Mervyn commented: “I believe we, as dentists, belong to one of the luckiest professions. When people ask what one gets out of Alpha Omega, I smile, I think of the friendships local, national and international. I think of the philanthropy in the past, in the present and what will be done in the future.”

Dr Mervyn Druian becomes this year's international president of the Alpha Omega Dental Society

It has been almost 50 years since Dr Mervyn Druian embarked on his glittering dentistry career, and since then, he has been at the forefront of innovation within the industry. With countless awards, accolades and charity work to his name, he is now regarded as one of the UK’s leading authorities on cosmetic dentistry and is greatly revered within the field.

Mervyn was always fascinated by preventive dentistry, something that was considered cutting edge at the time – especially within the NHS who focused on reactive procedures – and so he decided to pursue his passion and made the move to private dentistry in the early 80s. Having been a dental course ‘junky’, travelling all over the world to learn about new trends and advances, in 1983, Mervyn became the first dentist in the UK to introduce porcelain veneers, when he set up The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry with fellow dentist and great friend, Dr Ken Spektor.

Having garnered inspiration from his mentor, the ground-breaking dentist Dr Omer Reed, in the 1990s Mervyn came across a product called Ultradex, which not only helps whiten teeth, but also combats bad breath. It was then that he started treating patients for bad breath, the first dentist in London to do so at the time. Always ahead of the curve, the London Centre of Cosmetic Dentistry also introduced in-surgery tooth whitening (a new US trend witnessed by Mervyn).

Publications, Awards & Accolades

Aside from excelling within his profession, Mervyn has contributed to numerous dental journals and events throughout the years. He is also on the editorial board for Private Dentistry, Aesthetic Dentistry and Dentistry, as well as a judging panel member for many awards shows, including the upcoming Dentistry 17: Stars of Dentistry symposium in London this June.

In the last few years, Mervyn has been awarded by both his peers and organisations worldwide. These include: Outstanding Contribution to Aesthetic Dentistry at the Aesthetic Dentistry Awards in 2013; a fellowship of the American Society of Dental Aesthetics in in 2014 and has been made a Fellow on the American Society of Dental Aesthetics (ASDA) – an award that recognises those who have committed to demonstrating the highest care standards and advancements in the field of aesthetics.

To top it all off, Mervyn has recently been named International President of the Alpha Omega Dental Society. This is an educational and philanthropic organisation that was set up in 1907 to combat antisemitism and racism, and is used now as a vehicle through which its members (of which there are 6,000 worldwide) can give something back to those less fortunate – free dental work, for example, to elderly Holocaust survivors.
