I am on the General Medical Council Specialist Register for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and on the General Dental Council Specialist Register for Oral Surgery.
I completed my Dental degree in Dundee, Scotland followed by dental vocational training in the North of Scotland, several junior hospital posts in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Aberdeen, Airdrie (near Glasgow), Scotland, along with sessions in Oral Medicine at Glasgow Dental Hospital. I then completed my medical degree in Aberdeen, Scotland, followed by House Officer posts and then 2 years of basic surgical training. I moved on to Higher Surgical Training in the North West region from 2004 - 2010.
During this time I completed several fellowships; India (Cleft), USA (Craniofacial), Holland (Orthognathic & Facial Deformity), Germany (Trauma & Implants).
I currently work in a Specialist Multi-Disciplinary Team arrangement for Maxillofacial Trauma and Orthognathic/Facial Deformity cases, alongside several different specialties.
I provide services generally across the breadth of the specialty, including Oral Medicine.
