Richard gained his Diploma in General Dental Practice (DGDP) by examination at the Royal College of Surgeons in London in 1997.

Outside of general dentistry Richard has an interest in Orthodontics. When he’s not working, he enjoys running and cycling.

“I was motivated to get into the dental profession to provide ongoing care for people, hopefully in my local community. I was seeing a patient of mine for routine care today and discussing how I first started seeing him when I employed his daughter as a dental nurse, she left my employment some years later to take maternity leave and her son is now 28! That patient has needed very little dental work over that period. That gives me quite a ‘buzz’.”
