That was the boring part, now a bit about me.

I love being a dentist and I am very lucky to do a job that continues to inspire me. I work with an incredible team of people and treat some amazing patients all of whom make me smile and make coming to work enjoyable.

I have lived in South Tyneside for 20 years and worked here for more than 25 years and love the people and the area, it is such a great place with both the beauty and fresh air of the coast, and fantastic supportive communities. I have been married to my lovely wife Caroline for over 26 years and have 2 great kids Oliver and Rebecca. Nothing makes me happier or more proud when they share their news and successes with me.

I enjoy getting out for a cycle, when I can - time is very precious, but I always make time to walk Ben (the family dog) along the seafront no matter how hard the wind is blowing. If you see me be sure to say hello.
