Dr. Peter Stevenson-Moore - Retired

Prior to his retirement, Dr. Stevenson-Moore maintained a private practice since 1978. While doing so, he has become a leader in the prevention and management of the oral complications of cancer and cancer treatment. This work included the development of protocols for the identification of dysplastic tissue and early cancers; the prevention of the breakdown of teeth (an unfortunate risk associated with several forms of cancer treatment); and the rehabilitation of patients with complex prosthodontic defects.

He was the first person to hold a position of leadership in dentistry and oral oncology in Canada, largely as a result of the significant incidence of oral complications recognized by oncologists at the BC Cancer Agency 35 years ago. His pioneering and leadership role there spanned 29 years, and has resulted in the creation of a department of oral oncology and dentistry that has set world class standards for cancer treatment and research. From its humble beginnings and under the leadership of Dr. Stevenson-Moore, the Agency now serves six cancer centres in BC.

Much of the progress, prevention and treatment successes for oral oncology in the province of BC are as a result of his talent and leadership. He has devoted countless hours to helping patients with gross facial defects requiring unique and complex care. To help facilitate this, he spirited the early development of implant dentistry in BC. Working with the BC Ministry of Health, the Vancouver General Hospital, UBC and the BC Cancer Agency, and most recently, the BC Dental Association, he has helped many unfortunate individuals regain function and self esteem.

As a teacher and educator he presented 42 papers, published 41 articles, contributed to two text books, serves on the Review Boards of two dental journals and one medical journal, and undertaken numerous hospital and faculty appointments including being involved in the dental residency program at the Cancer Agency and at UBC. He was a surveyor for the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada on several occasions. In addition, he was an active in organized dentistry at the provincial, national and international level including the Academy of Prosthodontics, the Association of Prosthodontics of Canada, the BC Society of Prosthodontics, and the International Society for Oral Oncology, the Pacific Coast Society for Prosthodontics, and the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia. He has shown particular leadership in the area of collaborative relationships with denturists and dental technicians.

Dr. Stevenson-Moore retired from clinical practice in December of 2015 and has endorsed Dr. Sutton who has officially assumed his practice and is providing care for Dr. Stevenson-Moore's current client base, which includes numerous trauma and oncology patients.
