Whilst undertaking Vocational Training I completed my Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons exams, it was also during this time I developed a keen interest in endodontics (root canal treatment).

For the past four years I have been working two to three days a week within a fully private practice in Swindon and recently Gloucester, and three days a week within a mixed practice in Neath.

I enjoy high quality dentures, extensive crown, veneer and bridge work, cosmetic orthodontics, restoration of implants, root canal treatment and the management of periodontal issues including splinting of periodontally involved teeth. I also have provided botulinum toxin treatments and dermal fillers for over 5 years and can provide dental acupuncture.

I am a member of the British Endodontic Society, British Society of Periodontics and RCS Edinburgh. I am working towards my British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry accreditation.

Within my personal life I live in the South Wales Valley with my family. I have a small holding with horses and sheep and enjoy DIY and family activities. My major hobby is long distance Triathlons and endurance events.
