Dr Mathieson graduated with a BDS from the University of Edinburgh in 1990 and spent the following three years in a variety of hospital-based posts in the UK covering all dental specialities, prior to his formal training pathway in restorative dentistry.
In 1994 he became a Fellow in Dental Surgery of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd), followed in 1995 by achieving the Membership in Restorative Dentistry of RCSEd.
Having acquired a broad based career, as well as teaching at both Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities, he was recognised as a specialist in prosthodontics by the General Dental Council in 1999, and continued to provide restorative care for patients in private practices in both Edinburgh and Glasgow along with part- time teaching positions.
In 2004, he was appointed as a consultant at Zayed Military Hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; a post involving all aspects of restorative dentistry, with particular emphasis on the treatment of the failing dentition, tooth wear and implant based care.
During this spell he was also Regional Dental Adviser for RCSEd and achieved accreditation for the department along with organising the inaugural MFDS examination in Abu Dhabi.
He continues to be actively involved as an examiner with the RCSEd for both the MFDS and MRD examinations in the UK and abroad.
Dr Mathieson enjoys building effective partnerships with dental practitioners and has an excellent working relationship with practitioners in Edinburgh, where he is based, and throughout the UK and abroad.
