Neil graduated from the Charing Cross Hospital Medical School (1984) and University College Hospital Dental School (1988). He started his dental career at Poole Hospital in the Oral surgery department where he continued to work on a part-time basis in prosthetics department for a further 14 years. After his spell full-time in hospital, he worked as an associate in a busy NHS practice in Hamworthy before taking over a one surgery practice in Wimborne in 1993. This he developed and relocated to its present location in 2003.

Neil enjoys all aspects of dentistry and is enthusiastic about promoting a preventative approach to dental care. However he is committed to furthering his knowledge and skills, regularly attending postgraduate courses with a special interest in implants. This treatment option has been incorporated into the practice’s range of services since 1999,  Neil having placed or restored several hundred fixtures since then.
