About Me

Specialisms:
 Orthodontist

I'm a specialist in orthodontics and work exclusively in private practice. I use conventional metal or ceramic fixed appliances, aligners and lingual appliances, and am a committee member for the British Lingual Orthodontic Society (BLOS). I treat both adults and children and also enjoy more complex joint restorative/orthodontic cases.
