As well as educating others I am regularly asked to write up cases for Straumann and Botiss Worldwide Implant companies to demonstrate successful patient outcomes.
I accept referrals from colleagues for a variety of complicated clinical situations at both my Cirencester and Stow-on-the-Wold dental practices.
As well as being a fellow of the ITI (one of only 48 in the whole of UK and Ireland), I am also a member of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) and the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS).
