I graduated as a dentist in 2012 with a clear goal in mind: to become one of the UK’s leading implantologists. This determination led me to pursue further education at New York University NYU), where I enrolled in the prestigious Advanced Implant Dentistry Program. During my time at NYU, I not only gained valuable clinical experience but garnered a number of awards. While I continue to maintain valuable connections to NYU, my current focus is on honing my skills and perfecting my craft in the UK.

To that end, I am eager to share my knowledge and experience with advanced implantology with Your Dental Specialists.
