Dr. Stuart Orton-Jones
A great teacher, educator, dear friend and colleague. Eccentric and unique to the core. A multi generational dentist and icon of the profession. You will be greatly missed friend. Rest in Peace.
Standing on the shoulders of giants is a phrase often thrown away flippantly – that does not apply to Stuart a true giant of the dental profession. Someone who has influenced us at many levels.
Initially as an educator. Then as one of our past mentors who greatly influenced Practical Implantology’s modelling and final as a great and dear friend.
He will be dearly missed on many many levels. God bless you Stuart – thanks for the memories. Rest in peace, and I am sure that wherever you are you are organising the place – bless you.
