Tony Hoskinson qualified in Liverpool in 1972, then spent the next four years in the RAF before returning to the Wirral where he worked in general practice with his wife Sue. Mostly as a result of his exposure to outstanding post-graduate education by early Eastman graduates in the services, he left for the Eastman in 1981 to undertake the Cons MSc, firstly under Guy Morrant and then Derrick Setchell. Having survived that, he stayed for a further twenty years as a part-time clinical lecturer, then senior clinical lecturer. He took over a practice in the West-End where he practised both fixed prosthodontics and increasingly endodontics, which also became his main focus at the Eastman.
In 1992 he left his London practice to establish a referral endodontic practice in Great Missenden in Bucks, where he practised until his retirement in April 2017, the last fifteen years again with Sue who had retrained as a specialist endodontist.
He served on the Councils of both the British Society for Restorative Dentistry and the British Endodontic Society, becoming President of both in the early 90s. Subsequently he has also held the positions of President of the European Society of Endodontology and finally President of the International Federation of Endodontic Associations, as well as having the great opportunity of lecturing around the world for very many years.He has been married to Sue for nearly 45 years and they have two daughters. He lives in rural North Buckinghamshire where he restores classic cars and still plays golf, of sorts! He is also very involved with the Livery movement in the City of London and is currently Master of the Worshipful Company of Barbers.
