Coming from an Air Force family I grew up
in overseas and Lincolnshire before being accepted to join the Royal Air Force
on a flying scholarship at 16 however went on to study Dentistry at the
University of Leeds. Following commissioning in to the Royal Air Force I worked
across the UK, Europe and Asia practicing primary dental care and oral surgery
whilst completing additional qualifications from the Faculty of General Dental
Practice, Faculty of Dental Surgery and Royal Society of Medicine to which I am
a current Fellow to both.
Having spent over 20 years working in the
Armed Forces, I made the decision to work closer to home and spend more time
with the family and sought to provide high quality evidence based dental care
in a conducive environment, something that Clover offer to their patients. As a
dentalcare professional, we take pride to explore the best options for our
patients and ensure good understanding before we commence any treatment which
is important for future maintenance and achieving a quality outcome.
Over my years in dentistry, I have gained
experience in oral surgery, restorative dentistry, sedation, endodontics, and
restoration of the grossly worn dentition which is where I gained my Master’s
degree from Bristol University. I have spent many years teaching in dentistry
as a trainer, coach and mentor as well as additional skills in healthcare
leadership, governance and assurance, lifesaving, and forensics.
I am dedicated dentist committed to
continuous through life education to ensure our methods and materials remain at
the forefront of dentistry as well as continuing to provide a caring approach
to clinical care.
Married with 3 young children, I spend my
spare time providing entertainment and culinary services. When allowed to
escape, I still undertake work within the military Reserves, enjoy the outdoors
including skiing as a BASI level 2 instructor and assisting the local community
