Through practice-based research, The Campbell Clinic in Nottingham aims to improve patient experience and the level of care they provide to all patients.

What we do

Improving patient experience and outcomes is at the heart of our move into practice-based research. We aim to assess current practices in implant dentistry and other aspects of our service in order to study patient satisfaction and long-term outcomes. These findings will help us understand the level of care we provide, identify areas for improvement, and maintain a high standard of service for you. 

Current studies

Non-surgical treatment of peri-implantitis
Very occasionally, inflammation around an implant can lead to peri-implantitis. We have a well-established protocol for treating this which is led by our hygiene service. Our non-surgical approach has a record of excellent results, a story worth sharing with other dentists and hygienists.

Multi-Disciplinary Team meetings (MDT) in dentistry
Complex dental cases can require advice from a number of dental disciplines in order to plan the most appropriate treatment. Our team is fortunate to have clinicians with a wide range of experiences, such that we run weekly MDT meetings to discuss and plan complex cases. This integrated approach all happens behind the scenes, but by sharing (with patient consent) anonymised cases that have benefitted from this approach we can demonstrate to others the benefit of running this multidisciplinary approach ‘in-house’.

Get involved

We include a patient information sheet about our research in communications with you. This includes the option for you to consent for your (anonymised) data to be stored and used in future studies. Your clinician will discuss this form with you and answer any questions you may have before you decide whether or not to give us consent to use your data. This will not involve changes to your care or treatment but may ask for your views on treatment results.

We welcome input and feedback from our patients – if you would like to know more about our research just let our staff know next time you are in, or contact us on

Data protection

In order to comply with General Data Protection Regulations, from May 2018 our Patient Information Sheet will be accompanied by a research transparency statement. Here is the full version of the Study Consent Documents including the Patient Information Sheet, Research Consent Form and the research transparency statement.
