His ambition to stay at the cutting edge of dentistry has led him to complete a year-long implant course in Manchester which lead on to a sinus/ bone grafting course at the Royal College of Surgeons in London. He enjoys socialising with family/friends and can’t believe how quick his children grow! Apart from his children he has two passions in life, Liverpool FC and cars.
