After qualifying from Newcastle University in 2004 I spent the first 5 years as a dentist working in Southampton and Portsmouth. At the end of 2009 I made the leap up to the North (following in the footsteps of my ancestors who come from the Cottam area of Preston) to work with the great team at Ivory Dental Care.
I enjoy being a dentist because of the wide range of work that I get to do and also the variety in all the people I meet. I am particularly interested in making the experience of coming to the dentist a good one and aim to help those who feel nervous more comfortable along with maintaining a high standard of care.
I am married to Tim and we have two lovely sons Rowan and Loghlan together. We enjoy walking, travelling and being competitive! We are Christians and attend a church in Preston.
