Trevor Burke graduated from Queens University in Belfast. He worked in general dental practice in Manchester from 1974 to 1996, whilst also working part time in the Unit of Restorative Dentistry at the University of Manchester.

He was Professor of Primary Dental Care at the University of Birmingham and Honorary Consultant in Restorative Dentistry there from 2000 to 2020.

He has authored or co-authored over 360 papers in peer-reviewed journals and been awarded over 80 research grants. In this regard, Trevor’s main research interests include properties and applications of tooth-coloured restorative materials and clinical evaluation of the performance of materials in general dental practice. In 1993 he established the PREP (Product Research and Evaluation by Practitioners) Panel, a group of dentists who carry out research in their practices. He was Chair of the Board of Dental Protection for five years until November 2014 and is presently the Editorial Director of Dental Update.

Trevor’s time at the University was mainly spent being Director of the Master’s course in Advanced General Dental Practice, this having been established as a campus-based (“live”) course, and which is now a distance course for dentists anywhere in the UK and the world. Dr Neil Wilson was a key lecturer on the course for many years, principally in the field of fixed and removable Prosthodontics and implants.

Trevor will be undertaking his medical legal work here at the Centre and the team are thrilled to have him on board.
