I treat a broad range of oral and maxillofacial and oral surgery conditions of the mouth, face, jaws and neck. This includes dentoalveolar surgery (roots, wisdom teeth and cysts), soft tissue lesions of the mouth and lips, bone grafting and dental implants, salivary gland surgery and surgical dermatology. I specialise in surgery for cosmetic and functional facial deformity and disproportion and the treatment of facial trauma.
After qualifying in dentistry, I undertook junior posts in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Aberdeen. I studied medicine in Aberdeen and basic surgical training in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. I completed higher surgical training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough before being appointed a consultant to Central Manchester and Wigan in 2002.
In my NHS practice, I complete up to 1,000 new consultations per year. I undertake jaw deformity surgery for approximately 80 jaws and am responsible for the treatment of over 300 facial injuries per year.
