Professional profile

I qualified as a dentist from Newcastle Dental School, winning the Wisdom Dental Student of the Year award in 1989. After junior hospital posts and a period in general dental practice, I then specialised in Orthodontics, gaining my Masters qualification from Bristol Dental School in 1993.

After Senior Registrar training at the Eastman Dental Hospital, I was appointed as Consultant at Watford General Hospital in 2003, where I practice on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I own a private specialist orthodontic practice in South Kensington, where I work for the remainder of the week.

I have published several refereed papers and two textbooks.
