GDC : 49793 

I qualified from the University of Birmingham in 1976. My main interests are Cosmetic and general dentistry, implants, endodontics and sedation. In 1997 I gained the Diploma in Conscious Sedation from the University of Newcastle and followed this with a Diploma in PostGraduate Dental Studies from the University of Bristol in 2002.
I am committed to continuing professional development and education and regularly attend courses in the UK, France, and USA to keep my knowledge and skills up to date. I attended an intensive one year course in dental implantology at the Tatum Institute in 2006/7 and recently completed the Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
In addition to General Dental Practice, I have worked as a community dental officer, and as a Research Fellow and Clinical Lecturer at the Dental Hospital in Birmingham. I am also on a medico-legal panel and am involved in writing medico-legal reports in injury cases. I am fortunate to have my colleagues refer cases to me for dental sedation, endodontics and implants.
I am a member of the British Dental Association,  The Faculty of General Dental Practice, The Association of Dental Implantology (UK), The British and American Academies of Cosmetic Dentistry and The Dental Professionals Association.
