Brought up in Woodhall Spa

I graduated from Guy’s Hospital in London in 1993. After spending six of years working in London at Guys and then in general practice in Chichester in West Sussex I returned to Lincolnshire.

I have worked in practice in Woodhall Spa since 1999. I have a keen interest in training dentists and have mentored graduates for the past 16 years. I strongly believe in a caring, preventative, patient focused approach to dentistry and have an interest in orthodontics.

I am married to Vicki and have two children in secondary school as well as Woody and Bella the family dogs.

When not working; I enjoy watching Lincoln City with my son, cooking and the odd game of golf.
