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. My specialties encompass, head and neck cancer, skin cancer, salivary gland surgery including minimal access, facial trauma, facial pain and oral surgery.
I was awarded first place in a competition for the National Intercollegiate Head and Neck specialist Fellowship which I undertook in Birmingham, a world renowned Head and Neck unit, while also taking the opportunity to visit other centres of excellence like Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.

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.
