Online Tutor


University of Newcastle upon Tyne - Bachelor of Dental Surgery - BDS MFDS(Edin) MPH


I am a qualified and practicing dentist with over a decade of clinical experience and knowledge of the dental world, its academic study (undergraduate and postgraduate) and continuing professional development.

I have experience in overseeing clinical work and lecturing to graduate dentists, doctors and allied health professionals.

I am interested in helping students to see the clinical relevance of what they are learning- why it is important and how they will use this knowledge when treating patients. My public health background makes me place importance on where dentistry fits in the bigger picture, and I am dedicated to helping students become critical thinkers who keep their practice evidence based.

About me

I graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne as a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2006. Thereafter I went onto my vocational training in dental practice and my foundation post in the community dental service. I passed my membership exams for the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) in 2008 and worked clinically for the Public Dental Service in Edinburgh from 2008 to 2017. I completed a Masters degree in Public Health at Glasgow University in 2011 which improved my understanding of research methods and critical interpretation of scientific literature. Evidence-based practice remains very important to me.

I have many interests outside dentistry; I paint, draw, work with ceramics, read compulsively, am working on a novel.. and I'm a qualified hatha and yin yoga teacher.

After an extended maternity break spent travelling, I am now based in Edinburgh again, working in dental public health and emergency access.

Topic Expertise

My work focus has been in community dentistry which now increasingly falls under the umbrella of Special Care Dentistry. I have trained in various departments- General Dental Practice, Paedodontics, Oral surgery, Domiciliary care and care of the elderly, Sedation and Anaesthsia, Emergency access and with medically compromised patients (especially liver disease and BBVs).

The majority of my clinical work was spent working with patients with mental health issues, homelessness and addictions (providing the full remit of NHS dental care) and in out of hours and emergency settings.
