When I’m Not Being A Dentist…
Outside of dentistry, I have a number of interests. I am a dedicated Arsenal fan and as a ‘gunner’ regularly go to see my team perform. As well as watching football, I also play 5 a side football to keep fit.
I like watching horror movies, pub quizzes and listening to all sorts of music. I don’t like bad manners.
I’ve got a long list of things that I would like to do including swimming with a turtle.
I grew up in the London suburb of Woodford area and achieved my dental degree from Queen Mary University of London.
I have completed part 1 of my diploma of membership of the joint dental faculties and am working towards a certificate in restorative dentistry from the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
Further, I am especially interested in helping vulnerable people who are affected by dental problems.
Currently I am fronting a project to improve the oral health of elderly people in residential homes and I offer tooth crisis clinics for people who are suffering as a result of their teeth.
My greatest satisfaction with dentistry is exceeding a person’s expectations, something that I set out to do every day.
As a modern dentist I am keen to stay abreast and up to date with the latest developments in materials and techniques and offer all my patients painless anaesthesia with the Quicksleeper System.
