Professional profile

I have more than 25 years experience as a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. I am registered as a specialist in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Oral Surgery and Oral Medicine. I have been a consultant at the Spire Bushey Hospital since 1990.

I trained at St Thomas’ and St George’s hospitals in London and at hospitals in Guildford and West Sussex. I went to the Maharagama Cancer Hospital in Sri Lanka, for additional experience in the management of advanced tumours of the head and neck, and the University Hospital in Nantes, France to study the management of clefts of the lip and palate.

I was an NHS Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for 21 years at Watford General, Mount Vernon, Central Middlesex and Northwick Park Hospitals.

I was chairman of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery specialty training committee for London and the South East of England and organised specialty training for approximately a third of the UK’s trainees in this specialty. I was an examiner for the fellowship in dental surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Postgraduate Dental Tutor at Mount Vernon Hospital. I was responsible for establishing the North West London Regional Maxillofacial Centre at Northwick Park Hospital, one of the largest Maxillofacial Surgery units in the UK. I retired from the NHS in 2011. For the last five years I have continued to work in private practice.
