Overview

Biography

I am currently a Clinical Academic Fellow in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Sheffield.

I received Bachelor’s Degree in Dentistry with Honours from Universidad Cardenal Herrera, Valencia, Spain with distinctions in numerous subjects, including: Conservative Dentistry, Endodontics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.

After qualifying as a dentist I worked in a variety of dental settings in Cambridgeshire and the North East of England before starting my role at the University of Sheffield in 2017. I have been lucky enough to experience dentistry in the UK, Spain and Sweden.

Prior to my role in Sheffield I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Minimal Intervention Dentistry at King’s College London and I passed the examinations and became a member of the Dental Faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

I enjoy all aspects of Restorative Dentistry, with a particular interest in Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics, Periodontics and Conservative Dentistry.

Interests

My role as a Clinical Academic Fellow in Restorative Dentistry covers three main areas: further clinical training, clinical teaching and research.

I am currently undertaking the Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry (DClinDent) in Prosthodontics which involves both didactic teaching and practical training to a specialist level in Restorative Dentistry, with a particular emphasis on Prosthodontics.

I also have the privilege of teaching our undergraduate dental students in Restorative Dentistry. I have been involved in the clinical teaching of all year groups ranging from pre-clinical courses to final-year clinics.

Research

My main research interests include the evaluation and improved outcomes in teaching Basic Clinical Skills and exercise development and validation in virtual reality dental simulation
