Biography

Kurt Busuttil Naudi graduated BChD from the University of Malta in 2001.  He then went on to work as a House Officer and later as a Senior House Officer at St Luke’s Hospital, Malta.  He then moved to Glasgow and from 2004 to 2005, was appointed as a Senior House Officer within Glasgow Dental Hospital & School; during which time he obtained his MFDS from the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Glasgow.


In 2005 he was appointed as a Specialist Registrar in Surgical Dentistry and in 2008, on completing his specialist training, successfully obtained his MSurgDent from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.  Kurt was appointed as a Clinical University Teacher in Oral Surgery at the University of Glasgow in 2009.

Kurt obtained a Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Glasgow after successfully defending his thesis on Bone Bioengineering for Mandibular Reconstruction in 2011.  In 2012 he completed his Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy shortly afterwards.  In 2013 he was promoted to Senior Clinical University Teacher in Oral Surgery at the University of Glasgow and in 2014, following interview, Kurt was promoted to Honorary consultant in Oral Surgery. Also in 2014 Kurt obtained a Masters in Education in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education from the University of Glasgow.

Kurt is the coordinator of the 4th Year BDS undergraduate course in the University of Glasgow, co-coordinator of the postgraduate MSc in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and manages the incoming international elective visits to Glasgow Dental School.


Research interests

Kurt’s main research interest is in Bone Biology.  His main focus being in the area of bone bioengineering with the use of Bone Morphogenetic Protein and various synthetic scaffolds in the repair of critical-size craniofacial defects.
