  • Biography

    I qualified first in Dentistry in 1982 and then in Medicine in 1988 before training as a specialist in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

    I undertook research into mouth cancer and epithelial cell biology at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research in Manchester before being appointed as Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Newcastle University in 1996. I was a founder member of the Northern Head and Neck Cancer Unit based at Freeman Hospital in 1999, and am currently Chair of the National Clinical Reference Group for Complex Head and Neck Surgery.  

    In recognition of my personal research work into oral cancer and pre-cancer, I was awarded both a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2009, and a King James IV Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh in 2011.

    I hold clinics and operating lists at both the Dental Hospital and the RVI, treating, in addition to my specific areas of clinical interest, a wide range of conditions affecting the mouth, jaws and face.
