Dr Jo Saele was born in Norway and raised in South Wales. He is proudly both Welsh and Norwegian and a fluent Welsh speaker. After completing his undergraduate studies in Cardiff University (during which time he was awarded the Margaret Probert Prize) he went on to complete further study at the Royal College of Surgeons, London. Following this he was awarded with the DTR Medical Innovations Award at the All Wales Medical symposium (first dentist to win this award ever!). He then went on to work in general practice in Cardiff city centre whilst also gaining experience in restoring dental implants alongside further study at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

 

Having developed an interest in advanced restorative dentistry, Dr Saele completed a clinical externship at the University of Minnesota, USA. This fuelled his passion to strive for perfection in the treatments he was able to provide and results he was able to achieve. He therefore commenced a three year full time postgraduate clinical doctorate in Prosthodontics (the highest academic qualification available) at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. During his time in Ireland he was trained in the analysis and treatment of patients requiring complex fixed and removable prosthodontics. These treatments included combinations of; dental implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures. Cases treated by Dr Saele regularly involved complex full mouth rehabilitations, and the management of missing teeth. As part of his clinical doctorate Dr Saele undertook research involving the oral health of elite athletes in Ireland. This was the first study of its kind in Ireland and he had the privilege of working with World champions and Olympians. During this time, Dr Saele also completed a postgraduate degree in intravenous sedation to give him the skills to relax anxious patients whilst they undergo treatment with him. Having completed his three year clinical doctorate in Prosthodontics he completed his specialty exit exams in Prosthodontics at the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland.

Alongside a busy working schedule Dr Saele is invited to lecture both nationally and internationally on topics such as; implant dentistry, digital dentistry, tooth wear, full and partial dentures, veneers and dental photography.

Away from dentistry Dr Saele plays International Rugby Union for Norway and competes in the Northern European League alongside his brother. Dr Saele lives locally to the clinic with his wife Cianna and he enjoys both skiing and hiking as well as attending any match day at the Principality stadium.
