As a specialist in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, I deal
exclusively with problems in the head and neck region.
I have completed dual medical and dental degrees, in
addition to dental and surgical fellowships. Also I have
completed overseas fellowships in Orthognathic surgery
(Holland) and facial plastic surgery (USA). I now practice
the whole range of the speciality including Dento-alveolar
surgery (wisdom teeth, apicectomy and removal of impacted
and buried teeth), salivary gland surgery (both surgical and
non-surgical) TMJ disorders, the treatment/reconstruction
of oral and facial cancer, (including facial skin cancer) and
facial cosmetic surgery. Whilst retaining an interest in trauma
in general (ATLS instructor), facial trauma (bony and soft tissue)
is an area of special interest. To this end the provision of medico-
legal reports is an integral part of my interests.
