Ian Matthew served for five years as a dental officer in the Royal Air Force after graduation from Liverpool Dental School, gaining experience of family dentistry in the UK and in West Germany. After five more years in the British National Health Service, he joined the faculty at Birmingham Dental School, UK. He maintained a part-time dental practice position during this period, which allowed him to develop an interest in implantology.
