During this time, he spent time working in the UK, Germany, Africa, Iraq, Cyprus and Gibraltar. After a year working as a Senior House Officer in the maxillofacial surgery department in Portsmouth, he was selected to undertake 3 years further specialist training in orthodontics. This culminated in him returning to Wales to qualify with distinction from Cardiff in 2011 and being accepted on to the GDC specialist list for orthodontics.
He has extensive experience of treating both adults and children and has spent his career as an orthodontist working with other specialists to enhance patients’ smiles and confidence.
