The Speaker

Dr Kevin Lewis

Kevin Lewis qualified from The London Hospital in 1971. He spent 20 years in full time general dental practice and 10 further years practising part time. He became involved in the dentolegal field in 1989, firstly as a member of the Board of Directors of Dental Protection, then (1992) as a full time dentolegal adviser and from 1998 as Dental Director. He stepped down from this role in June 2016 having been involved in Australian cases for 21 years. Including several landmark cases.

For 25 years from 1981 to 2006, Kevin was the Associate Editor of the UK publication Dental Practice. He has been the Consultant Editor of Dentistry for 10 years and continues in that role. He has written two textbooks on dental practice management. He is still writing and lecturing in many parts of the world, having been an invited speaker at seven FDI World Dental Congresses since 1995 and a guest speaker at the conferences of 14 national dental associations.

Kevin enjoys the unique distinction of having been awarded Honorary Membership of the British, Irish and New Zealand Dental Associations.
