From a young age, dentistry was a profession I knew I wanted to pursue. I’ve always had an eye for detail and been a people person – and being a dentist involves both of these attributes and more.
I started my career by studying Dentistry at The University of Manchester, and completed the Royal College of Surgeons MJDF postgraduate qualification before moving into private practice.
I’m a full member of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and was awarded a Merit in December 2013 by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) for my Masters Degree in Restorative Cosmetic Dentistry. I’ve also completed a year-long certificate course in Implant Dentistry approved by the University of Salford and run by Professor Cemal Ucer. I’m now in my final year of a two-year Postgraduate Diploma in Dental Implantology at UCLan, which will build my knowledge in this area even more.
For patients who are nervous in the dental chair, I’ve completed postgraduate Dental Hypnotherapy training with the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis at Salford University.
A real career highlight for me was being named the North West’s ‘Best Young Dentist’ at the 2012 Dentistry Awards. I was also proud to have been shortlisted in the ‘Patient Case’ category at the 2013 Aesthetic Dentistry Awards.
For me, being a dentist is all about getting to know patients and understanding their dental concerns – it’s not just about performing the treatment itself. I care about what I do, which is why I’ve built a great reputation and achieve the results my patients want.
