Profile

I joined the School of Clinical Dentistry in 2002 after almost 10 years in the Department of Biomedical Science. I have taught across all years of the BDS and DH&DT programmes in a range of topics from anatomical science to management of patients in primary care.  As the university lead for the Dental Practice Unit and the Outreach lead I have a significant responsibility for students’ learning about primary dental care which will be the career destination for most.

From 2019 I am the programme lead for the non-clinical BSc programme in Bio-dental Science and Technology. 

Research interests

I am currently on a teaching-specialist contract and support colleagues in projects. My current interests focus on:

  • Methods of supporting non-traditional students to apply for dental training
  • How students reflect on their experiences as they transition from dental school to Foundation Training
