Prof. of Healthcare Applications of Design

At PDR we’re pleased to announce that Dominic Eggbeer, head of our Surgical and Prosthetic Design group has been awarded the title of Professor. This is in recognition of over 15 years of developing innovations in the application of design to healthcare, especially in the field of maxillofacial reconstruction. Dominic achieved a number of world firsts in the application of computer-aided design in maxillofacial prosthetics, the design of orthodontic devices, and the design and manufacture of surgical guides using 3D metal printing.

The quality and importance of Dominic’s work was recognised with the award of a highly prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2015. Dominic continues to push the boundaries of possibility in how design can be used to improve patient outcomes and deliver effective healthcare services by working with numerous health boards and surgeons.

We congratulate Dominic on achieving this award and recognition.
