Associate Dental Surgeon
GDC No. 66899
I qualified in South Africa in 1988 and moved from my country of birth to Wales 15 years ago. I was always a city boy, but have grown to love the freedom and solitude that living in the country gives, so I suppose I am now a bona fide country boy! I have spent my whole career as a general dentist in private practice, and I have a keen interest in oral surgery and oral pathology.
My free time is spent with my family, I married Connie, my childhood sweetheart 21 years ago. We have two boys, Ryan and Tristan. When not in the surgery I can be found in my garden or I am ashamed to say in front of the television.
BDS (Lond) 2007
GDC No. 128666
Originally from Newport (the one in the South East of Wales!) I qualified from King’s College London in 2007 after which I returned to Wales to complete my Vocational Training in Caldicot. I then spent 3 years in mixed practice in Blackwood before moving on to split my time between practices in Cardiff and Barry where I have spent the last 7 years treating a very wide range of patients. I have an interest in general dentistry with a focus on trying to help patients maintain a good functioning dentition through prevention and timely intervention. I also enjoy helping patients to overcome their anxieties about dental treatment and have experience in many aspects of both routine and more complex care. In my spare time I have a keen interest in fitness and martial arts including holding a third-degree black belt in Kung Fu. As a new father my time has more recently become dedicated to my daughter which, along with being a keen landscape photographer, has been a major factor in my decision to move to Pembrokeshire.
