Following my experiences of three years in foundation training and over 5 years in general dentistry I have a keen interest in general and aesthetic dentistry. The skills gained early on have been developed whilst working in general dental practice since, in terms of quality and efficiency aiming to provide a world class service.
Within busy general dental practice, there has been an opportunity to care for a patient base from a variety of age groups and social backgrounds.
It has been possible to assess the efficacy and longevity of my clinical work and build an excellent rapport with my patients and their families. It has been very satisfying treating my patients on a regular basis and seeing their trust in me grow, aside from receiving positive feedback daily. Clinically, I furthered my experience in all aspects of general dental care and introduced new techniques to my practice, to improve overall patient care –
especially building my aesthetic treatment planning and techniques skillset with Chris Orr’s Aesthetic Seminars.
Recently, I have volunteered at a free eye & E.N.T. camp in Kenya (removal of facial cysts, lipomas, polyps and keloids). These experiences taught me about working with people less fortunate than myself as well as management of budgets and resources. The experience was very rewarding.
Having represented the Kenyan national swimming team and a number of football teams, including the Cardiff Medic’s 2nds and captaining Dental FC., I have grown in maturity and it has instilled in me values such as team work, compromise and effective management. Golf has always been an exciting and challenging pastime. Some of my other interests include scuba diving, travelling, photography and more recently, bouldering!
