Qualifications: BDS 2000 (Bristol Uni), MFDS RCS 2003 (Edin), DRDP 2010 (Eastman), MENDO 2011 (Specialist Endodontics Kings College London)

GDC: 78027

I qualified at Bristol Dental School in 2000 and spent the following few years in the Southwest gaining experience first in hospital and then in practice. I was awarded membership with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2002.

I have undertaken various postgraduate courses in implants, cosmetic dentistry and advanced restorative dentistry at the Eastman Dental Institute, to ensure that I am providing dentistry of the highest standard. This led to an interest in endodontics (root canal treatment) and so I completed the four-year specialist-training programme at King’s College London.

As a specialist endodontist, I have limited my work to endodontics because it allows me to focus on this aspect of dentistry and provide root canal fillings to the highest standard. I find the work very satisfying and enjoyable. My aim is to provide treatment of the highest quality in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

I work in various private practices in London. I continue to develop my clinical knowledge and skills through continued further learning by attendance on courses, conferences worldwide and reading up to date dental literature.

In my personal time I meditate several times a day and am a trained yoga teacher. I am an avid reader and go to the theatre regularly, especially to watch plays. I enjoy travelling and love to experience the different cultures around the world and especially the wonderful cuisines!!
