I am very passionate about my dentistry including cosmetic dentistry such as veneers and implants. Many patients come to see me who have not seen a dentist for many years, they may not have been attending due to fear or they may have been ashamed of their smile. I feel especially proud once I have gained their trust, answered all their questions and given them a beautiful natural smile. It’s so rewarding to see them smile confidently for the first time in years and no longer be scared of going to the dentist. This passion is also reflected in my team who go to great lengths to ensure that your visit is as relaxing and as pleasant as can be. To complement my dentistry I carry out facial rejuvenation procedures such as Botox and Dermal Fillers

Outside dentistry I enjoy spending time with friends and family and am a keen badminton player.
