Samantha Thompson

BDS Sheffield 1987, MSc UCLAN 2015
Dental Surgeon and Facial Aesthetics Practitioner
GDC No.62766

Samantha qualified as a dentist in 1987 from Sheffield, and in 1993 she established her own practice. Recognizing a growing demand for facial aesthetic treatments, she has since then chosen to diversify into this area. Following the completion of a variety of training courses with Cosmetology Aesthetic Medical Training, Samantha started offering facial aesthetic treatments in 2010. Since then Samantha has attended other courses with different training organisations, including those run by Dr Brian Franks, to further advance her aesthetic skills.

In 2012, concerned about the lack of formalized training and regulation within this field, Samantha embarked on a unique MSc course in Non Surgical Facial Aesthetics offered only by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). The subsequently published government commissioned Keogh report which highlighted the need for this level of training has reinforced her desire to bring more professionalism into the area of cosmetic treatment.

At the end of 2013 Samantha attained the Diploma in Non Surgical Facial Aesthetics (NSFA) and in 2015 was awarded her Masters Degree in Non Surgical Facial Aesthetics, making her then one of only a handful of aesthetic clinicians in Europe to have achieved this level of qualification.
