I initially trained as a Dentist, which led to my interest in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. I spent 10 years training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, completing my Medical degree and Surgical rotation in Yorkshire. This included posts at hospitals in Leeds, York, Wakefield, and Huddersfield. Having a young family led to a shift in focus and I switched to General Practice, and completed a Diploma in Dermatology at the University of Cardiff. My surgical background enables me to perform all aspects of minor skin surgery, both in General Practice and the Dermatology clinics.
