I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2007. Since graduating I have been determined on developing my skills and delivering the highest standard of care. This journey started in 2008 when I was awarded the Diploma of Joint Dental Faculties form The Royal College of Surgeons London (MJDF). My focus has been on promoting and providing patients with the strongest foundations on oral health, thereafter building and rehabilitating patients smile and function. This is where my interest in Periodontology began, in 2009 I began a three year a Masters in Clinical Dentistry in Periodontology at The University of Sheffield, which I gained with Merit in 2012. After further training undertaken I was recognised by the General Dental Council as a Specialist in Periodontics.
Dentistry is a passion of mine and I have held a variety of positions around the Midlands both in General Practice and Hospital. General practice has allowed me to appreciate all facets and disciplines of dentistry which allow me to provide all aspects of care for my patients. I have worked as an Honorary Speciality Doctor at Glenfield Hospital in my hometown of Leicester. As well as a Clinical Teacher in Restorative Dentistry at The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital working in the Periodontology and Restorative Departments. Hospital positions have allowed me to treat complex cases as well as teach the next generation of dentists.
I offer my services in diagnosis and treatment planning with an interest in using extensive periodontal knowledge and skills to establish a healthy periodontal environment, which is conducive to maintaining the natural dentition.
My approach is centered on patient motivation and wherever possible non-surgical, however when appropriate he uses surgical periodontal therapy including surgical regeneration and mucogingival plastic surgery to achieve optimal results. All surgical treatment is carried out using magnification and microsurgical instruments.
One of the greatest things about Dentistry is it is an environment that constantly evolves and always room to grow learn and develop. I have completed a Diploma in Implantology at The University of Central Lancashire, this compliments the periodontal training already completed.
I am committed to my specialty and to continual professional development. I am a member of the British Society of Periodontology (BSP), European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), International Team for Implant Dentistry and am a member of Dentinal Tubules.
