Jose Navarro
Dr Jose M. Navarro

Implant Surgeon 


GDC: 250466

Dr Jose Navarro attended Gordonstoun School in Scotland before returning to Madrid to study for his dental qualification. Following this, he completed a three-year postgraduate in implant dentistry and periodontology at the New York College of Dentistry. He remained here for the next two years, achieving a Master of Science degree for his research into high strength ceramics. He also taught implant dentistry in the Aesthetics department.

Jose has been given awards for his research by several societies, such as the American Academy Osseointegration award for best presentation in 2007 and the European Academy of Esthetic Dental Research Award in 2011. Throughout his career, Jose has been heavily involved in the academic world, having co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and book chapters. He also co-edited a book entitled “High Street Ceramics”.

Having devoted much of his clinical time to immediate dental implant treatments such as All-on-4 and Teeth in a Day, Jose is an experienced implant dentist. In addition, he places conventional dental implants and uses guided surgery, where treatment is planned using advanced software and CT scans to reduce the amount of surgery and in many cases improve healing times.

As well as his work with implants, Jose is also a Digital Smile Design (DSD) Key Opinion Leader and Instructor. He collaborates closely with the founder of the DSD concept, Christian Coachman. The procedure enables a visualisation of a person’s smile design, better treatment planning and a totally digital workflow, cutting the amount of time spent in the dental chair.

Jose has lectured both nationally and internationally throughout Asia, Europe and North and South America and is an invited lecturer at a number of universities. Through this medium he shares his experience and knowledge with tomorrow’s implant surgeons.
