Peninsula dean Liz Kay ranked fourth in dentistry league

The dean of the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry has been ranked fourth in a dentistry top 50 league table.

Professor Liz Kay, who was appointed as dean of the dental school when it opened in 2006, said she was "amazed".

"It is good news not just for me, but also for the Peninsula Dental School," she said.

"I hope my ranking is as much about the achievements in dental education and research as it is about me personally."

The annual table is compiled by Dentistry magazine and when Prof Kay last appeared in 2009 she was listed in 43rd place.

She became one of the first female dental professors in the UK when she was appointed to the University of Manchester in the 1990s and has since had more than 100 scientific papers, articles and text books published.
