“I love helping you get the smile you've always
wanted or if you’ve broken a tooth, being able to reassure you that we can restore or replace the tooth. I also love showing you pictures of similar cases, so that you can see for yourself that the treatment will exceed your expectations.

As I am sure you know, I don't spend 24 hours a day being a dentist. Every
Tuesday night, I leave the practice and head for a nearby football pitch to play five aside football with a few friends (actually we don’t mind who plays as long as we have enough people for a team). We all wear the colours of our club’s football team and after the match wax lyrical about our skills to anyone who will listen.

My other great love (apart from my wife and two gorgeous daughters) is music. I am quite sure I must have asked many of you what type of music you listen to. I have quite an eclectic taste as you may have noticed from the varying selection of music that has been played at the practice from time to time.

I really enjoy the surf and sand and this is our first port of call as a family
whenever the weather allows. We have been known to be sitting on Bournemouth beach [a patient tipped me off on the best one to go to] in the depths of
winter throwing a frisbee, drinking a latte and enjoying a little of the warm
winter sunshine.”
