About myself:

I love providing high quality dentistry and keeping people's mouths healthy and looking great. Unfortunately lots of people are highly anxious which can provide a major barrier to having such treatment. Having 2 family members who are anxious about various aspects has given me a good insight into that!

It is very satisfying to be able to help people manage or overcome their anxiety and be able to have dental treatment that they need.

Having over 13 years experience treating all manner of patients in general practice, I've found a caring approach often goes a very long way. However, more recently I have undertaken additional training in the provision of inhalation sedation (happy air) and intravenous sedation to help both those patient with high levels of anxiety, or undergoing longer procedures.
