About the speaker


Carrie Campbell, Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry, Department of Paediatric Dentistry, University of Glasgow

Carrie Campbell graduated in 1996 from the University of Glasgow. Having worked within both the community and hospital dental settings in Scotland and England she started her Specialist Registrar training in Paediatric Dentistry in 2002. In 2004 she obtained her MSc by Research (a RCT on G.A. preparation techniques) and M Paed Dent (RCSEd). Consultant training was completed in 2008 when she was appointed as a Consultant in Paediatric Dentistry at Glasgow Dental Hospital and School with a Role in Undergraduate Training. A special interest in the treatment of dentally phobic children led to training in both medical hypnosis (in 2008) and a Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner qualification (2009). She presently leads on the behavioural anxiety service in Greater Glasgow and Clyde and works closely with colleagues in primary care to ensure this pathway of care is utilised to maximise efficiency and effectiveness in a patient centred manner.
