    Dentist GDC - 61955 -- B.D.S. Glas 1986

    I worked as a general practitioner in the NHS until 9 years ago. I then joined Oasis in a mixed NHS / Private practice. This has since become a solely private practice.

    In 1994 I began 2 years working with VSO in a rural hospital in Malawi. This was an incredibly rewarding time where my job included training dental workers and wiring the occasional fractured jaw.

    I recently went to Nepal (though' only for 2 weeks) and again worked in a rural hospital providing basic dentistry using a torch as a light source.
