Professional profile

My specialties encompass, head and neck cancer, skin cancer, salivary gland surgery including minimal access, facial trauma, facial pain and oral surgery.

I am UK trained and qualified in both dentistry and medicine at the Royal London Hospital. After completing these I went onto the prestigious South Coast programme for general surgical training and specialist Oral and Maxillofacial Training.

I was awarded first place in competition for the National Intercollegiate Head and Neck specialist Fellowship which I undertook in Birmingham, a world renowned Head and Neck unit, whilst also taking the opportunity to visit other centres of excellence like Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. I have been involved in over 50 peer reviewed publications.

I am currently the clinical Lead for the Oral and Maxillofacial unit on the Isle of Wight and lead the multidisciplinary team in Skin Cancer. I am an examiner for the exit fellowship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and I sit on the National Council of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons - a position elected by my peers nationally.

I am also an Editorial Board member of the British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. I have previously been an Advanced Trauma and Life Support Instructor and have just been accepted to the internationally renowned AO UK as a faculty member. I am also a faculty member of the prestigious European Head and Neck Course and organise the International Head and Neck update and Face courses.
