    Dentist GDC Reg No. 82346 | BDS Sheff 2003

    Nik graduated from Sheffield School of Dentistry in 2003. Since then he has committed himself to continuing his dental training. Enjoying the challenge of intricate root canal procedures, he completed a post-graduate certificate in root canal treatment in 2010 and purchased his first dental microscope - essential for good quality root fillings. Part of the post-graduate training included a short course on cosmetic dentistry, wanting to pursue this further Nik went on to complete a year long certificate in cosmetic and restorative dentistry in 2011. Since then he has been increasingly offering a range of high quality cosmetic and restorative work including completing training to enable him to provide Six Month Smiles and Invislign treatments. Currently Nik enjoys all aspects of dentistry working with a microscope to deliver the best standard possible for his patients.

    In his spare time, Nik enjoys his running. You may bump into him at the crack of dawn in one of Sheffield's woodlands and occasionally taking part in the odd 10k and half marathon. When he's not doing this, he is frequently to be found trying to improve his photography. Nik lives in Sheffield with his wife and two young children.
