  • Biography

    I qualified from Leeds in 1988 and then worked in Maxillofacial units and General Dental Practise gaining my Dental Fellowship in 1991. My Masters degree was gained in 1997 at Newcastle University along with my specialist training. My higher training was at Manchester Dental Hospital. I became an RVI Consultant in 2001 and Lead for CLP (Cleft Lip and Palate) for the Northern and Yorkshire region in 2002.

    My clinical work is in the field of CLP as well as complex orthodontic conditions in children and adults, especially those that require additional input from other medical or dental specialities. Active treatment is carried out within Newcastle Dental Hospital, but I have clinics across the whole of the Northern region.

    I am active in clinical and didactic teaching of undergraduates and postgraduates and have been responsible for running the MSc programme and supervising PhDs, particularly in the area of CLP. I am currently Training Programme Director for Orthodontics across the North of England. I lecture nationally on a range of subjects including CLP, communication skills and ethics.

    I am actively involved in a number of multi-centre research trials, gaining international awards, in the field of growth and development of the jaws as well as CLP.

    Nationally, I am active in the British Orthodontic Society and am currently Director of the British Orthodontic Research Foundation and Chair of the Scholarships and Grants Committee.

    Within the Trust I have held several management roles including: Chair of the Dental Directorate, Chair of the Dental Cross Infection Control Committee and Clinical Specialty group Lead for Orthodontics/Paedodontics/Sedation.
