HEE Midlands and East
The Educational Supervisor: I am an enthusiastic dentist who enjoys practice life and further professional development of myself and the wider profession. I enjoying working with FD's and have been an ES since 2007 years. Clinical interests include surgical placement and restoration of implants and fixed orthodontics on children and adults. I act as an independent expert in dento-legal cases and have been interested in dento-legal issues since 1996. I am a dental advisor to NHS England and NHS Improvement, East of England and I am Chair of the Local Dental Network for East Anglia.
Outside dentistry I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. Weekends often involve DIY projects around the house and garden as well as watching my children play various sports. Holidays usually revolve around sailing, walking or cycling. My next challenge is to sail dinghies with a kite attached which should make for lots of fun.
The Practice: St Mary's Dental Practice has been established for over 30 years and is situated in the centre of Ely. It is a large mixed NHS and private dental practice offering a wide variety of dental care to a broad cross section of the local population. There are 7 surgeries, 7 dentists, 4 hygienists, a practice manager and 10 nurses. The team varies in age and experience from the younger training members to those who have been practising for several decades.
All the surgeries have an intra-oral x-ray machine and there is a DPT in the practice. We have a central decontamination room. Records are held on a networked Exact Software of Excellence computer system with digital radiography and a digital intra-oral camera.
We are a friendly practice with a common room where team members congregate at lunchtime.
The Area: Ely is an historic Cathedral City about 15 miles north of Cambridge. The Cathedral stands tall in the centre with the city built around it. The population is expanding rapidly and there are strong road networks to the wider region as well as the A14 and M11. The train station is 10 mins walk from the practice and Ely has good train services to Cambridge, Peterborough and Norwich.
