BDS (Glas) MJDFRCS (Eng) GDC 60004 I was born and brought up in nearby Hamilton and graduated in dentistry from Glasgow University in 1985 with distinction passes in Medical Chemistry and Dental Technology and Materials Science.
After 7 years in practice I set up the Village Dental Surgery in 1993 with one dental nurse. The practice now employs 12 members of staff and provides a comprehensive dental service. I have dedicated my career to continuously improving the quality of care I provide to my patients by actively committing to further education and training. I have trained and worked with orthodontic consultants at Glasgow Dental School and Hairmyres Hospital. Having completed recognised implant and cosmetic dentistry programs in England I now receive referrals from other dentists to provide these services. I was awarded The Diploma of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties of The Royal College of Surgeons in 2009. As an active member of The Faculty of General Dental Practitioners (FGDP), I now tutor other dentists seeking to gain the MJDF diploma. I am an Invisalign accredited dentist, a member of the Association of Dental Implantology and have access to a network of dental specialists to enable my patients to receive the best possible dental care. I believe that all patients should have the option to choose the dentistry they need to maintain a healthy mouth and attractive smile for life.
