Teaching interests

Undergraduate enquiry based learning facilitator, clinical supervisor,  facilitator/assessor for the critical appraisal of evidence module and contributor to the dental hygiene/therapy course.

Research interests

I am interested in the holistic aspects of dentistry and this lead to me completing a PhD at the Diabetes and Vascular Research Centre, Exeter entitled  "investigation of the links between periodontal disease and clinical and functional indicators of microvascular dysfunction".

I have an interest in evidence based dentistry and have previously worked as  a clinical adviser  and research fellow for the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme  which provides up to date accessible information for dental practitioners and ensures good patient care. I contributed to a number of guidance documents which have been published  including ‘Drug Prescribing in Dentistry’,‘Prevention and Management of Dental Caries in Children', ‘Practice Support Manual’, and ‘Guidance on Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment’.
