Michael is our Prosthodontist at Specialist Dental Services. He specialises in the restoration and replacement of missing teeth, particularly in complex situations using dental implants. He is extremely passionate about the care and well-being of his patients and in 2018, became a finalist at the Aesthetic Dentistry Awards.
Michael graduated from Bart’s & The London Dental School in 2013, winning several prizes and passing with a distinction in his final year. He moved to Devon after successfully completing his foundation training. Subsequently, Michael had gained surgical experience working as a Senior House Officer in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University Hospital Southampton, Royal South Hants Hospital & Royal Hampshire County Hospital.
Here he was exposed to the challenges of treating and rehabilitating patients with oral cancer as well as trauma. He became curious to how he could support these patients with reconstructing their teeth and improve their quality of life.
Michael therefore decided to do further postgraduate training and completed the Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery with the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. He then embarked on three years of specialty training in Prosthodontics at the Bart’s & The London Dental School, completing his Doctor of Clinical Dentistry and successfully passed the Diploma of Membership in Prosthodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Michael is currently conducting a clinical trial at Queen Mary, University of London, (QMUL) assessing the patient satisfaction to different biting patterns of dentures.
Michael lectures and runs courses for qualified dentists and hygiene therapists, and teaches undergraduate students at QMUL.
Michael is the Council Member, Newsletter Editor and Co-chair of the Early Practitioners within the British Society of Prosthodontics.
In his spare time, Michael is currently training for the London Marathon and enjoys running long distances.
“I’m very keen to ensure that I can support my patients through a comfortable journey of dentistry where there can be an improvement to their quality of life”.
