I qualified as a dentist in 1995 with a distinction in Oral Surgery and subsequently completed a Masters degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 1999. Further training resulted in gaining MFDS at the Royal College of Surgeons of England and FFD at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland in Oral Surgery with Oral Medicine and ultimately entry onto the General Dental Council’s Specialist Register.
As an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds, I have been involved in oral surgery training at both undergraduate and post graduate level.
I undertake all aspects of oral surgery and the diagnosis and management of oral medical conditions. My certifications in advanced life support (ALS) and advanced trauma life support (ATLS) provide a valuable breadth of knowledge to treat medically compromised oral surgical patients. I specialise in the surgical management of impacted canines, coronectomy/ wisdom teeth removal, surgical management of cysts of jaws and neonatal tongue tie.
I have a particular interest in bone preservation techniques and in minimising post operative risks and complications. I have vast experience in dealing with complex oral surgical procedures and I regularly obtain patient feedback.
I have published many articles in the American and British Journals of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and I am a reviewer for the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. I am an examiner in Membership in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery(MOMS) and MFDS for The Royal College of Physicians, Glasgow and in MJDF for The Royal College of Surgeons of England.
I am married to Uma who is a Consultant Psychiatrist and have two kids.
I am a professional collage maker by recycling magazines in to beautiful pictures.
