I started my career in dentistry in 1989, after graduating from Sheffield University and completing my vocational training year in Barnsley.

Since then, and for the last 25yrs, I've worked as an associate in a family practice in Urmston. During that time I completed a postgraduate dental qualification at Bristol University 2004-2007. I moved to Ellesmere Dental Practice in 2015.

I am married with two children, who are now both at university in Sheffield. My family and dogs keep me busy, but recently I have found time to take up beekeeping.

I qualified from Liverpool University in 2008 following which, I did my vocational training in Chester. I then went on to take a position as Senior House Officer in the Restorative Department at Leeds where I completed my Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery.

Since then I have been working in general practice in Cheshire. I have also completed a 12 month postgraduate course in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry in London, giving me the skills to offer patients the most up-to-date, evidence based, aesthetic options.

I always try my best to make my patients feel comfortable, in what can be an anxious environment. I particularly enjoy seeing children and try to make their visits to the dentist more fun! I am married with two young children and I enjoy cooking, keeping fit and art.
