Peter graduated from the University of Glasgow, and spent one year in general dental practice, in Warwickshire. In 1997 he joined the Oral Surgery Department of Princess Margaret Hospital as Senior House Officer.
In 1999 Peter worked for 6 months as a volunteer dentist in Trinidad, as well as the interior of Guyana, in South America, where access to dental care is limited. This was a particularly rewarding and useful experience.
At the end of 1999, he returned to the UK as Senior House Officer at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. After a year he returned to Swindon as a member of staff of the Oral Surgery Department at the Great Western Hospital, until 2006.
In 2001, Peter was awarded the post-graduate degree of MFDS at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow.
