    I am the lead dentist for The Gloucester Road Dental Practice in Bristol and visit Wantage on a monthly basis to provide implant services. I qualified in 1983 at Guys Hospital London. After qualifying, I continued to work at Guys and then worked in Kingston and Canterbury carrying out maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics. I moved to Bristol and worked in the Bristol Dental hospital and then in general practice carrying out further maxillofacial surgery and restorative dentistry. I joined Bishopston Dental Care in 1993 and got involved with implants in 1997. I developed a special interest in implantology and have become a clinical coach and mentor for Astra.
