  • I work in hospital in an NHS role and in private practice limited to implant and oral surgery.
  • UK Trained as an undergraduate and postgraduate with extensive experience in implant dentistry and oral & maxillofacial surgery.

  • An open, simple and transparent pricing structure. There will be no hidden costs or added extra fees. 
  • If an implant fails to integrate with your bone in the first instance, we will replace it (if possible) at no further cost.
  • I am able to provide a complete implant service myself from start to finish and have trained many general dental surgeons to provide implant treatment.

  • Outside my hospital position, all of my clinical work is implant and oral surgery related.
  • I have taught and mentored many dentists over the years so that they can provide an implant   service at their practices.
  • I am fully trained in a variety of different implant systems from various manufacturers.
  • I exclusively use only the finest tried and tested implant types available.
  • Experience gained from both practice and hospital environment and work as Senior Clinical Teacher and occasional Examiner at Guy’s Hospital, King’s College London.
