    About

    Mr Gregor Knepil is a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with over 30 years of clinical experience. He first qualified as a Dentist in 1993 from Edinburgh Dental School, before qualifying from Manchester University Medical School in 1999 to enhance his interest in maxillofacial surgery. He also developed subspecialist interests in skin cancer, facial deformities, cosmetic facial surgery, and endoscopic salivary gland procedures. Upon completion of his education, he completed further surgical training across the UK and Australia. In addition to training aspiring surgeons in the Southwest of England, he is deputy lead for facial deformity in the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and is an active researcher in collaboration with the University of Gloucestershire.

    His many years of experience have allowed him to refine his surgical skills to treat his patients with the greatest accuracy. He is also dedicated to ensuring the best care for his patients, which he achieves through listening to his patient’s concerns and using his knowledge to assign the best treatments.

    Explanation
    (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    On 31/03/2022, In an operation under local anaesthetic, that took about an hour, Mr Knepil removed a cyst from beneath a molar tooth in my lower jaw. I was warned that nerve damage was a risk but, in the event, there was none. Following a successful procedure, my mouth was a little sore but I did not require so much as an aspirin to deal with this. I am extremely grateful to Mr Knepil for his demonstration of surgical skill.

    Greg is a relaxed, efficient and calm consultant and I am very pleased to have seen him. He is a little let down by the inefficiency of the nursing staff at the private hospital in Cheltenham who need to up their game and get to know their equipment properly.
