Fellowship in Dental Surgery

Awards and accolades

The Director of Dental Protection, Dr Kevin Lewis, has been awarded a Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The ceremony, held on 9 November 2007, recognised the contribution that Dr Lewis has made to dentistry both in the UK and around the world.


He has been at the helm of Dental Protection since 1998, overseeing a period of sweeping changes to the ways in which dentists are both regulated and employed. Before joining Dental Protection, Dr Lewis had established a successful preventive practice in Peterborough. At the same time he also developed the writing and lecturing skills which made him the leading dental personality that he is today.

"On behalf of the Board of Dental Protection I wish to congratulate Kevin on his award of Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons of England," said Kathryn Harley, Chair of the DPL Board. "This honour recognises Kevin's tremendous contribution to dentistry within the UK and throughout the world".

"I feel delighted and very honoured to have received this most unexpected award, and very conscious of all those colleagues who have worked a lot harder than I have for their chosen profession, without being recognised in this way," Dr Lewis. "I am extremely fortunate to have had so many opportunities to serve my profession in such interesting ways throughout my professional career - none of which I could have foreseen at the time I graduated. Hopefully this award will encourage others to seize whatever opportunities come their way, and to make the best of them."

Dental Protection Limited (DPL) is an autonomous but wholly owned subsidiary of the Medical Protection Society (MPS), the world's largest professional indemnity organisation for doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals. Dental Protection has over 49,500 dental members in 70 countries around the globe.

Dr Lewis will be lecturing Australia-wide in March and April for DPL, presenting "How to avoid Close Encounters of the Third Kind"... with the first being People, the second Environment and the third Lawyers!
