Areas of Expertise:
I have been a qualified dentist since July 1996 and have worked in both hospital and general practice clinical environments. I have worked in general dental practice since 1997 and, since 2003, have been principal of my own dental practice.
The practice was awarded BDA Good Practice Scheme Membership in December 2004. In December 2014, practice was awarded Gold Membership after 10 years on the scheme.
In that time I have gained vast experience in all aspects of general dental practice entitling me to provide expert opinion on all matters related to general dental practice.
In 2011, consolidation and augmentation of my knowledge was gained by passing the postgraduate diplomas of Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties of The Royal College of Surgeons of England (MJDF RCS Eng) and Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (MFDS RCS Ed).
In July 2014, I was appointed as a clinical expert to the General Dental Council Fitness to Practice team. A clinical expert provides clinical for the GDC's fitness to practice process.
Reports are produced which help the GDC decided whether the information referred to the Fitness to Practice team amounts to an allegation that the registrant's fitness to practice may be impaired.
As I expand this work, I have now worked with dental defence organisations and medical negligence solicitors as an independent dental expert witness.
In May 2016, I was awarded Cardiff University Bond Solon Civil Expert Witness Certificate. This involved formal training and assessment over 2 years in reports writing, courtroom skills, cross examination, civil law & procedures.
I am also familiar with the Jackson reforms and fully aware of civil procedure rules, particularly practice direction part 35.
