Qualified from Edinburgh
in 1969. After gaining early experience in practices in London,
he became prinicipal of a busy multiple practice in South Wales
from 1973-1980. Then Nick and his family moved to Ashford, Kent
in 1980 and built up a thriving four-man general dental practice.
In the 1990's Nick developed an interest in the TMD syndrome
which led to his work and research with denture patients,
culminating in his scientific paper being published in the
British Dental Journal in 1996.
For the last 10 years he was a trainer in the vocational training
scheme, where young dentists are attached to an accredited training
practice. He found this work stimulating and challenging and it
motivated him to become involved with peer review and as much
postgraduate training as the demands of running a busy general
practice would allow. Nick has given lectures to various groups
about his new technique.
Ultimately, the challenge and rewards of his work with edentulous
patients resulted in his giving up general dentistry to concentrate
on the field of facial aesthetics and to develop Added Dimension
Fran graduated in History at Edinburgh
University in 1970 and went on to do a postgraduate teacher training
course in Sussex. After her marriage to Nick in 1971 she taught in
London for two years but decided to help Nick run his practice in
South Wales and has remained in dentistry ever since.
After managing a large busy practice for 19 years, Fran is
enjoying the new opportunity at Added Dimension Dentistry. She
believes that our aim should be to build up a more personal
relationship with our patients whom she feels need sensitivity,
understanding and encouragement, as well as our expertise.
She also brings her love of art and design, which is reflected
throughout the practice.
