Simon qualified from University College, London in 1981, where he shared his year’s prize for operative technique. He worked as a postgraduate dentist and in the practice of Michael Austin, before opening his own practice at 250 Dyke Road, Brighton in 1986. He continued to lecture newly qualified dentists as a dental practice trainer and active member of the British Dental Association before moving to Germany in 1990 to research new dental techniques and the high technical level of German dentistry.His discoveries there led to the development of a busy general and orthodontic clinic and laboratory specialising in complex mouth reconstructions, orthodontics and dental implant work. Simon further studied advanced general dentistry and orthodontics there, in Australia and the USA and continued to train graduate dentists, hygienists and dental nurses in his German practice alongside presenting lectures to colleagues throughout the country on specialist dental topics and to parents and teachers on dental health.In 2004 the education of his children brought him back to the UK where he rapidly established a successful dental and orthodontic clinic in Southampton.Simon is a member of the British Dental Association and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, acts as a mentor to young dentists and works as an expert witness and on treatment claims for AVIVA insurance and Denplan. He’s currently also doing further evidence based research at Warwick University in the fields of cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry and orthodontics.2013 sees Simon’s much anticipated return to the Dyke Road to re-establish the practice where he worked 22 years ago. Simon is passionate about delivering high quality dental health in the gentlest possible manner and is looking forward excitedly to the dental health of Brighton and Hove benefiting from the mix of dental and orthodontic skills and the unique breadth of experience and expertise that he’s been fortunate to accumulate.Simon is a recognised dentist of the British Olympic Association’s Passport Scheme and helped athletes with their dental preparations for the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games.Simon is married with two daughters and outside of dentistry he has wide ranging interests in the world of sport and at home enjoys developing his culinary skills and beekeeping.
