I graduated from Sheffield University in 1988 and completed my vocational training year in Barnsley. Since then, and for the last 25yrs, I've worked as an associate in a family practice in Urmston. During that time I completed a postgraduate dental qualification at Bristol University 2004-2007. I moved to Ellesmere Dental Practice in 2015.
