Comment by Professor Michael Escudier on the death of former FDS Dean Professor Sir Paul Bramley
12 Jun 2020
Professor Michael Escudier, Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, said:
"I was saddened to hear of the passing of Professor Sir Paul Bramley, who made an important contribution to the Faculty of Dental Surgery and a number of other prominent dental institutions.
"He served as the Faculty’s Dean between 1980 and 1983, and in 1984, Paul’s service to Dentistry was recognised by a knighthood. In 1988 he was awarded the Colyer Gold Medal by the College in acknowledgement of his contribution to dentistry, and became the National President of the British Dental Association from 1988 to 1989.
"Professor Sir Bramley received honorary degrees from Birmingham, Sheffield and the Prince of Songkla University in Thailand. He published extensively in professional journals and in 1989 jointly authored with J Norman a definitive book on the Temporomandibular Joint. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time."
