Registered Specialist Periodontology
Clinical consultant in Restorative Dentistry, Periodontics and Endodontics
Ulpee graduated from the University of Wales college of Medicine in 1986 and went straight into a dental practice. After a year she embarked upon a career in the hospital in 1987. She made it to Consultant level in Restorative Dentistry a decade later.
Seemingly a natural leader, Ulpee has held many positions at Eastman Dental Hospital including; Clinical Audit Lead, Clinical Lead for the Department of Periodontology, Academic syllabus co-ordinator and Lead for Referrals.
In her capacity as Divisional Clinical Director at Eastman, Ulpee is a highly respected figure. Working as a Consultant in Restorative Dentistry, she has knowledge and experience that is unrivalled. She acts as Clinical Tutor for trainees at Eastman so is a massive influence on the future of the hospital.
Ulpee is especially interested in aiding those with aggressive periodontal diseases as well as patients with a number of underlying issues contributing to an unmanageable level of dental health. She is renowned in her field and if she is not treating a patient, she is most likely researching to further her understanding.
Much of her time is devoted to educating dentists at post graduate level to give them the kind of expertise that will enable them to push on in the perio-implant area. Due to her tireless efforts, in 2011 she was awarded the UCLHT Medal for Excellence in Medical Education.
Her work is not only restricted to Eastman though. Ulpee acts as a point of contact for various royal colleges and societies who see her value.
