Meet The Dentists
The Doctor Who Of lasers – Meet Ilay Maden
I love travelling and teaching laser dentistry internationally provides frequent opportunities to do that.
Outside dentistry and teaching, I love spending time with my daughter and wife, – she is also a dentist, so we do our best to leave dentistry out of our chats – hiking, camping and discovering the beauties of UK.
Anyhow, I was born in Istanbul, Turkey where I studied dentistry and completed my PhD studies in Gums (Periodontology). I received my MSc title for Laser Dentistry in Aachen, Germany.
Why I Chose To Settle In Yorkshire
After my studies and working 10 years at private practices in Istanbul, mainly concentrating on periodontology and implant dentistry, I got registered to the local dental bodies both in Israel and UK.
My wife and I chose to settle in Yorkshire where we enjoy the landscapes during our weekend walks, to which our daughter has been participating since 2014.
I now practice in London Harley Street in addition to Yorkshire.
my biggest passion
You’ll be glad to know that I am a kind and patient dentist, always endeavouring to take care of my patients in the best possible way. I believe dental treatments are joint ventures between the dentist and the patient and I loves coaching my patients for them to receive a long lasting, healthy and happy smile. While paying attention to details, I do my best to have a holistic approach, for which lasers are natural pairs. Due to that reason, my biggest passion in dentistry is laser dentistry.
What’s more, laser treatments have been implemented at Castle Park Dental earlier and I will be adding onto the list of treatments which don’t need numbing, providing quicker and better healing like deeper cleaning and bio-stimulation for the treatment of gum disease, through minimally invasive and atraumatic treatments.
Aesthetic treatments like rejuvenation of the skin around the mouth, reducing wrinkles and enhancing lips in addition to snoring treatment will be some of the laser treatments that are applied in Castle Park Dental.
founding member of Global Periodontal Laser User Society
You see, I have been training dentists on laser dentistry during the last decade sharing my knowledge. I am the country representative in the UK for World Federation for Laser Dentistry and Aachen Dental Laser Centre.
I am on the board of World Federation for Laser Dentistry European Division, a founding member of Global Periodontal Laser User Society, an editor for Lasers in Medical Sciences scientific journal, a visiting lecturer for the Lasers in Dentistry MSc program in Aachen University, Germany, and I lecture for Laser and Health Academy, German Association of Oral Implantology, International Continuing Education Center for Dental Implants and Dental Online Collage by Deutscher Ärzte-Verlag.
In addition, I also have a special interest in, periodontology which deals with the gum disease that has symptoms like bleeding and/or swelling gums, teeth getting longer as gums move back. I carry out treatments for pink aesthetics, including gum whitening, which complement aesthetic dental treatments for not only nice but also healthy smiles!
