After graduating from the London Hospital Medical and Dental School in 1998, I undertook vocational training and was then appointed as a senior house officer in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Royal Surrey Hospital, Guildford.
I obtained my Fellowship in Dental Surgery in 2001 after which I moved to Australia. Here I worked at Westmead Hospital, in Sydney. Rotating between Oral Surgery, Paediatric Dentistry and Forensic Dentistry. I gained a great deal of experience with nervous patients and became involved with teaching students before going into private practice.
On returning to the UK, I continued to work in private practice and developing my interest in Orthodontics and the prevention and management of Dental Trauma.
I completed an MSc in Orthodontics with Merit at the University of Warwick in 2016 and is now an Honorary Clinical Teaching Fellow.
