Training and qualifications
After qualifying, Tim worked in general practice for four years in Bedlington, Durham and South Shields, before joining and then buying into a partnership in Wallsend.
Tim has always been committed to continuing postgraduate education, allowing him to practise modern dentistry and particularly his field of interest, endodontics (root canal treatment). He has lectured on this subject in the north east since 2002, where he also completed extended endodontic training in 2007, after completing other courses in Switzerland and Santa Barbara, USA.
After passing his membership of Faculty of General Dental Practice at the Royal College of Surgeons, he became regional tutor for this qualification, from 2006 to 2010. Tim joined our practice in 2014 and is proud to be part of a team of highly trained staff with areas of expertise for which many patients are referred, both internally as well as from other practices. He loves the practice's dedication to ensuring patients receive great care and support.
