B.A. B.Dent.Sc., M.A. M.Dent.Sc (Perio), M.A. (CBT)
I have been a practicing dentist for the past 36 years. Apart from my primary dental degree, I hold a Master's Degree in Periodontology (treatment of periodontal or gum disease). I also hold a Master's degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a particular psychotherapeutic approach to Human Behavioural Science. I am a trained Mindfulness teacher (Harvard Medical School). I have studied Hypnosis, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and am trained as a reiki master.
My approach to Dental Science and gum disease is different. I like to call it 'the whole person approach' as I believe that dental health is closely connected with a person's overall health and well being. My journey has brought me through all the disciplines that I have mentioned above and finally to a place where I can hopefully take a more rounded approach to my patient's overall wellbeing when treating them. I look forward to working with you.
