Professor Thomas Cyril White’s career was largely focused on orthodontics and included senior positions at the Glasgow Dental School, the Western Regional Hospital Board, and the University of Glasgow, where he was appointed Professor of Orthodontics in 1963.

He played a key role in the development of the College’s Fellowship in Dental Surgery and served as Convenor of the Dental Council, 1972-74.
