John graduated from Peninsula Dental School in 2014 with Honours and completed his Foundation Training in the East of England scheme. Since then he worked as a MaxFax DCT in Gloucester and has worked for Rodericks as an associate, most recently and currently at Milehouse Dental Practice, since October 2017. Since his own dental foundation training year, he found himself drawn to education and wanting to be involved in developing young dentists. He feels having completed foundation training, having worked as a DCT and completed the MJDF post-graduate examinations, he is in a good position to guide a dentist through some of the key decisions that they need to make early in their careers.
