John Renshaw has been a general dental practitioner for 45 years and still works four days a week in private practice in Scarborough. He specialises in dental practice management, primary care dental service commissioning issues, legal compliance within the practice, complaints resolution and wider healthcare policy.

He has been a major player in dental politics for over 30 years and was Chairman of the British Dental Association from 2000 to 2006.

His political career includes a significant contribution to the wider UK healthcare scene and he has held senior representative roles with the NHS and the Department of Health. He was Dental Practice Adviser to various primary care organisations over a period of 15 years.

Having left the top job at the BDA in 2006, John became a founder member of a new pressure group called CHALLENGE which was created to fight for major reform in the latest contractual arrangements affecting the provision of dentistry within the NHS in England. This work is ongoing.

John is currently Secretary to the Yorkshire Branch Council of the BDA.

In the past John has worked with many consultancy firms including PricewaterhouseCoopers and KPMG. He has also advised at least eight venture capital providers on potential investments in the dental industry.
