Profile

Dr Mark Payne qualified from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2000 as Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS). He then undertook General Professional training in the Northern Deanery for a further 2 years followed by a period in General Dental Practice in County Durham. This was followed by a position as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough during 2005. Dr Payne continued the development of his special interest in Restorative Dentistry through his appointment as a Senior House Officer at the Dental Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne.

He started specialist training in Periodontology at Queen Mary University of London in 2006 being awarded a Master of Clinical Dentistry in 2009. Then followed period of research study as a Medical Research Council funded Clinical Training Fellow into the bacterial aetiology of Periodontal Diseases. This culminated in the award of a PhD in 2013 with a thesis entitled ‘Dysbiosis of the commensal microbiota drives inflammatory periodontal disease in the mouse model’. As part of this research Dr Payne was honoured by the British Society for Oral and Dental Research with the Senior Colgate Prize in 2011 and was selected to represent the British Society at the International Association for Dental Research General Session in Brazil in 2012. Dr Payne then returned to a period specialist training in Restorative Dentistry until his current appointment as a Clinical Lecturer in 2017.

 

Teaching

In his current role Dr Payne is involved in delivery of both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

He is module lead for direct restorations for all clinical Years, Year 2 assessment lead and Year 2 module lead for Introduction to Clinical Practice (Adult Cariology). Dr Payne also teaches on the MSc in Dental Sciences for Clinical Practice course.

Dr Payne has also co-supervised a Master’s Degree project entitled ‘The Role of Porphyromonas gingivalis SerB in Periodontal Bone Loss in the Mouse Model’. This was shortlisted for the British Society of Periodontology Wilfred Fish Prize.

Research

Research Interests:

Dr Payne has a research interest in the microbial aetiology of Periodontal Diseases and has presented at a number of National and International conferences.

His PhD thesis focused on how changes to minor microbial components of the commensal oral microbiota can have profound effects on the microbial community as a whole and influence the development of Periodontal Disease. He was proud to have spent this period of research as part of the Curtis Laboratory under the leadership of Professor Mike Curtis.
