Dr Christine Goodall has taken up the post of Dean Elect following her election at the Faculty of Dental Surgery AGM on 19 November 2021.
Dr Christine Goodall has been elected future Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Faculty’s Annual General Meeting which took place on 19 November. She will serve in the post of Dean Elect for one year before succeeding Mr Andrew Edwards as Dean of the Faculty in November 2022.

She has held several college roles including examiner and convener for the MFDS Part 2, Director of Dental Examinations, and Vice Dean of the Dental Faculty. Most recently she served as a member of the college Wellbeing Committee.
Christine’s research interests lie in the fields of alcohol, violence and facial trauma. Her work with facial trauma patients over many years led to her founding Medics against Violence in 2008. The charity now runs several programmes across Scotland that aim to prevent violence and support vulnerable groups.
She is an Honorary Member of the Faculty of Public Health, a Founding Fellow of the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management and was awarded an OBE for her work in violence prevention in 2016. She was a member Project Lift’s first ‘Leadership Cubed’ cohort.
On taking up the post of Dean Elect, Dr Goodall said:
“I am absolutely delighted to have been elected and I look forward to the opportunity to play such a prominent role in the work of our Faculty, particularly as we continue to meet the challenges presented by Covid-19. As Dean Elect and subsequently as Dean of the Faculty I hope to focus on the areas of inequality, wellbeing and sustainability in promoting the interests of our profession and our patients.”
