The Educational Supervisor: I qualified in 1998 from King's College London and completed my vocational training in London where I continued to work in general practice until 2002. I moved back to Leicester and became a partner at Highfields Dental Practice in 2008. I have a special interest in endodontics and the management of complex restorative cases. These interests were further developed during my postgraduate diploma course. I have continued my postgraduate education and have obtained my MJDF qualification as well as my Diploma in Restorative Dental Practice from Eastman's Dental Institute, University of London. I am in the process of completing a post graduate certificate endodontics.
I became an Educational supervisor in 2012 and as part of this I also completed my PgCert in medical education. Outside clinical practice I am GDC fitness to practice panel member, and have been doing this since 2015.
Outside dentistry I have a keen interest in music, with a substantial record collection. I enjoy eating out and the cinema, as well as being a keen runner. I like to travel to unusual places.
