I am a specialist surgeon of the Mouth, Jaw and Face (Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon).

I am happy to treat any condition that affects the mouth, neck, jaw and face - from impacted wisdom teeth to facial trauma, from salivary gland stones to head and neck cancer, from dental implants to complex reconstruction.
