Often people ask where I am from as the moment I speak it's fairly obvious I am not from these parts. Here is a little about me.
I grew up in Torquay, a small traditional seaside town in the South West of England which explains the accent and the ability to dodge low flying seagulls. I moved to Manchester to attend the Dental program at the University of Manchester in 1985 and in 1989 I graduated.
How did I end up in Canada? In 1991 with my Canadian wife Juliet (no two ways about it, Canadian girls sure are cute), I immigrated to Canada to provide dental care to the wonderful Inuit people of the Kitikmeot region of the N.W.T. in the Canadian Arctic, as a flying dentist. After three years of landing in extremely isolated communities in small prop planes, freezing my tush and seeing some of the most beautiful scenery in the world we moved “south” to Yellowknife, the N.W.T. capital.
In 1996 we moved further south to Calgary and started practicing at this location with the goal of creating a practice where patients feel comfortable, know they are being listened to, know they are receiving quality care and yes actually have fun!
I really love helping our patients. Yes, even the nervous ones.
In my spare time I love nothing more than spending time with my wife and two daughters (although they seem to get more homework than I did at college). Spending time with them is everything to me. Our biggest pleasure is travelling as a family both back to England and other countries minus the airports of course. At the moment I am attempting a lifetime goal of learning the electric guitar. So far it would appear that Eric Clapton has nothing to worry about, although I’m sure my guitar wishes it had been purchased by somebody with a little musical talent not to mention my guitar teacher!!
Well that is enough about me. You can read about the great team that works with me on the Meet the team page. We hope you find the Southcentre Dental Clinic web site useful and informative. If you wish to contact us please feel free to do so.
Dentist and maybe one day Guitar Hero!
