Biography

Malcolm Levinkind BDS, MSc, PhD, FDS RCS, qualified from University College Dental Hospital in 1978. After gaining hospital and general practice experience in the UK and South Africa, he specialised in Paediatric dentistry at the Eastman Dental Hospital. He then spent over 12 years at the Royal London Hospital and during this time was promoted to Senior Lecturer. As a clinical academic he was awarded the Colgate prize for his research. Following leaving the hospital in 1997 he has been in full-time specialist private paediatric practice and has held the post of Honorary Senior Research Fellow at The Eastman Dental Institute.

Dr Levinkind sees patients in his practices in Harley Street (W1) and East Finchley (N2) where he offers a full range of specialist paediatric dental care. This includes: routine primary care, managing dental trauma, extensive restorative and surgical treatment under general anaesthesia. He has a great deal of experience dealing with children of all ages who have difficulty coping with routine dental care. He offers a full range of behaviour management techniques from hypnosis, happy gas (relative analgesia, Nitrous Oxide sedation) to treatment under general anaesthesia. For treatment under general anaesthesia he works with several very experienced Senior Consultant Specialist Paediatric Anaesthetists at: The Harley Street Clinic, The Portland Hospital, The Cromwell Hospital and The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth.

His main areas of clinical interest are the management of dental growth and development problems, provision of comprehensive restorative care and management of children who have sustained dental trauma. In addition, he runs a dedicated clinic for the laser revision of tongue and lip ties that are causing problems with breast feeding.

New clinic for laser revision of tongue and lip ties

If your baby is having problems being breast-fed and you are experiencing symptoms, it is possible that your baby has a tongue-tie.

A tongue-tie is a piece of tissue under the middle of the tongue that is too short or thick and restricts a baby’s tongue movement. If there is also tissue under the top lip that is too tight this may prevent normal mobility of the upper lip. Both of these may result in a poor latch and contribute to difficulty breast-feeding.

Dr Levinkind has a dedicated clinic where he provides laser revision of tongue and lip ties for babies and children of all ages. If you would like to book a consultation appointment, please call 020 8444 3413.
