I am really keen on ‘preventative’ or minimally invasive dentistry. My ultimate goal is to try and help my patients to limit the amount of dentistry they require. In other words, once we’ve fixed your dental problems we want to help you keep it that way. I work very closely with my hygienist Rachael to achieve this. Infact regular patients of mine will often see the hygienist a lot more frequently than they see me! This not only saves my patients money, but they are likely to need less fillings or injections. It is the kind of dentistry that I would like to receive myself.

Over the last few years, we have experienced huge demand for dental implants. I have studied widely and recently passed the Royal College of Surgeons Implant Diploma. I have also travelled to Italy, Germany and Portugal to seek out experience from Implant colleagues abroad.

Life outside dentistry is frantic, chasing after 3 active children and a wife that likes Marathon running! I also enjoy clay pigeon shooting and the occasional Parkrun.
