I graduated from Guys Kings and St ThomasDental Hospital in 2005.
Following sometime in general practice, I took up Senior House Officer posts first at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge and then at Bart's and The Royal London, gaining experience in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a further year in Paediatric Dentistry. This culminated in me being awarded Membership of the faculty of Dental Surgery.
I then embarked on a three-year specialist training pathway in Orthodontics at The Royal London Hospital which included completing a Masters Degree in Orthodontics for which I received a distinction. I was also awarded the prize in academic and clinical excellence. I went on to complete my Membership in Orthodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons of England and joined the specialist register for Orthodontics.
Since then, I have worked in various orthodontic practices within the Greater London area and as a Clinical Lecturer at Queen Mary College, University of London, School of Medicine and Dentistry.
I am also a member of both the British Orthodontic Society and the European Association of Orthodontists.
At Dental Solutions, I am dedicated to providing a Specialist Orthodontic service to children and adults of all ages, with varying dental complexities. I am able to offer a full range of orthodontic appliances from traditional metal appliances to more discreet options such as tooth-coloured ceramic appliances and the Incognito lingual appliance. I am also experienced in removable appliances and clear aligners including Invisalign.
I enjoy working closely with GDP's and my colleagues at Dental Solutions on more complex cases where a multi-disciplinary approach is required.
