I completed my specialist training in Leeds and Sydney, and was then appointed to my current post. My time is split between my Harrogate & District NHS Foundation Trust post and the Leeds Dental Institute where I am on the academic staff with an honorary consultant contract. The HDFT post covers North Yorkshire and as such I run outreach clinics in Northallerton, Scarborough, Selby and Harrogate.
I have recently taken on the post of Associate Postgraduate Dental Dean for Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber. I am a member of the specialist advisory committee and am chair of the board for the intercollegiate (exit) examination for paediatric dentistry.
