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



I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Liverpool University in 1995 during which time I was awarded the Royal Air Force Dental Branch Cadetship 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 couse (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 dental practice. In 2017 I received a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA)(with Merit) focusing on Healthcare. In the same year I embarked on a PhD focused on Dental Education and in 2018  I was the winner of the Excellence in Teaching Award (Undergraduate) for Science, Engineering & Healthcare and finalist in 2019.
