David qualified as a dentist at Guy’s Hospital and his early practicing career was spent in the Community Dental Service in London.  He has two Masters Degrees (Dental Public Health with distinction, and Medical Statistics).  He holds the Diploma in Dental Public Health of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and has a PhD in the Epidemiology of Oral Cancer. He has been a Medical Research Council Special Training Fellow in Health Services Research and held both lecturer and senior lecturer posts at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute.  He served a spell as the Eastman’s Director of Education Operations before relocating to the South West in April 2009 to take up the post of inaugural Director of Postgraduate Education and Research at Peninsula Dental School. He was awarded a personal Chair, his name was added to Specialist List in Dental Public Health and he was appointed Honorary Consultant in Dental Public Health.  He is also the Peninsula Comprehensive Local Research Network Group Leader for the Oral and Dental Speciality. He has been awarded the Fellowship ad eundem from the Faculty of General Dental Practice, Royal College of Surgeons of England for his services to the training of Primary Care Dental Practitioners.

Research interests

David's major research interests are in inequalities in oral health and evidence based dentistry. He has investigated factors that may affect health and health behaviours including relative deprivation and ethnicity. His work has shown a steep socio-economic gradient in the numbers of both adults and children requiring hospitalisation for severe dental problems such as potentially life-threatening abscesses and, most worryingly, that these problems seem to be increasing. His research into oral cancer has shown that the high rates of the disease among British South Asian men can be explained by differences in levels of relative deprivation, but that the high rates in British South Asian women are largely unrelated to deprivation.
