My role is to provide support to the academic team in their teaching role, demonstrating dental techniques to our students to aid their learning processes in the laboratory.
Additionally I am active in running the dental laboratories, ordering stock for the courses, maintaining health and safety procedures.
I entered into the dental profession in 1988 at the Leeds Dental Hospital and University in which I completed a four year apprenticeship learning all aspects of dental technology in prosthetics, orthodontics, maxillofacial and fixed prosthodontics in which I obtained a BTEC Diploma in Dental Science.
I specialised in removable partial dentures, chrome metal frameworks and then progressed to working in commercial dental laboratories. My career progressed into me running my own dental laboratory for 4 years.
I have experience with Exocad, 3d printing and cad cam to produce high performance polymer frameworks as well as traditional wax up techniques from my previous job before I joined the University of Bolton in 2018.
