Specialises in

  • Oral medicine
  • Oro facial pain
  • Jaw cyst removal
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Tongue tie

I specialise in the management of deeply impacted wisdom teeth and the management of cysts of the maxillofacial skeleton. I have performed over several thousands (on average 600 - 700 cases a year) of oral surgical procedures over the last five years as a consultant oral surgeon. Most commonly I perform surgical removal of teeth, exposures of impacted teeth and the surgical management of cysts in the maxillofacial region.

I have been a consultant oral surgeon since September 2011 and previously an associate specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery since 2008.

I organise and run an annual oral surgery symposium at national level, delivering a high standard of education for oral surgeons and other healthcare clinicians to improve the standard and delivery of care in oral surgery.

I'm a teacher and trainer for postgraduate dentists who specialise in oral surgery and am a senior lecturer at the University of Leeds. In addition to my clinical work I am an honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds. I'm also an Editorial Reviewer for the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP letter of referral.

My time away from the hospital is spent with my children, and I'm involved in most of their activities. I play cricket and am a collage-maker turning pictures from magazines into personal statements. These provide the perfect balance to the stresses and strains of the work environment.
