The Educational Supervisor: After completing my BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences in 2003 at the University of Newcastle, I qualified in dentistry, obtaining my BDS at Kings College London in 2008. My foundation dental training was at a practice under the East of England Essex Coast scheme, where I remained as a GDP and became an Educational Supervisor in 2014 for Foundation Dentists and Hygienists. In 2017 I moved to Riverside Dental Practice Bishops Stortford. During my years practicing and involved in dental education, I have throughly enjoyed all aspects of dentistry and education. My postgraduate studies have been based around restorative dentistry, with an interest in fixed and removable prosthodontics, minimal invasive dentistry including short term orthodontics to enhance restorative and aesthetic dentistry.
Outside of dentistry I enjoy spending time with my family, running and cycling, enjoying films and live music and have a passion for anything that has two wheels and / or an engine. 

The Practice: Riverside Dental Practice is is a well established modern 6 surgery practice near the River Stort in Bishops Stortford. We have a broad patient base of NHS and private patients, allowing a great opportunity to experience and be involved in high needs through to complex multi-disciplinary cases. We have a good reputation in the local community and neighbouring towns and villages and beyond.
Our up to date modern surgeries are fully computerised with Software of Excellence, and are equipped with rotary endodontics, digital photography and radiography. We have two receptions rooms and meeting / staff rooms, to enable space for learning, discussion and reflection, and most importantly these tend to be well stocked with coffee, cakes and treats!
