The Educational Supervisor: I am an associate dentist at Shirley Dental Care since 2010, and have been an ES since 2015.
Since qualifying I have always been keen on post-graduate education, having completed my MJDF, a Diploma in Restorative Dentistry and most recently a Masters in Endodontology in 2018. I have developed a Special Interest in Endodontics and accept referrals from other GDPs. Other interests in dentistry include Restorative, Orthodontics (provider of Quick Straight Teeth) and Dental Sleep Medicine (Snoring and Mild Obstructive Sleep Apnoea). I have a friendly and approachable manner and aim to get the best out of my FDs. Interests outside dentistry include cooking, traveling and spending time with family.
