Senior Clinical Lecturer (Scholarship), Aberdeen Dental SchoolStudent Teaching Clinics Coordinator.Programme Lead for MSc in Advanced Restorative Dental Practice

I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Liverpool University in 1995 and became a commissioned RAF Officer in 1993 after several years of service with the RAF Volunteer Reserve. On completion of my studies at Liverpool, I spent the majority of my career as a Dental Officer during which time I was fortunate enough to travel all around the world before retiring in the rank of Wing Commander. 

After completing an MSc in Restorative Dentistry with the University of Manchester (with Merit), I joined Aberdeen Dental School as a clinical tutor (part-time) in 2015. When not teaching at Aberdeen Dental School I delivered private dental care for BUPA. Since then, I have been appointed (in 2016) as a clinical senior lecturer. I am responsible for the delivery of endodontics teaching, for coordinating the teaching clinics and for final year clinical supervision on the Integrated Oral Care department. In 2019 I took up the responsibility of delivering a Postgraduate course (MSc) in Advanced Restorative Dental Practice via blended learning.

I have a passion for restorative dentistry, especially endodontics and strive to teach leadership skills to dental undergraduates to prepare them for a dental practice. In 2017 I received a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA)(with Merit) focusing on Healthcare. In 2018  I was the winner of the Excellence in Teaching Award (Undergraduate) for Science, Engineering & Healthcare; I have been a finalist in 2019, 2020 & 2021.
