Personal profile


I am a Senior Lecturer and Periodontology Lead in the Dental Academy. I am also a GDC Education Associate and a CQC Specialist Advisor.

I have a wide experience of clinical practice and clinical education, and I am particularly interested in the psychological wellbeing of dental undergraduate students.
