I qualified in 1991 from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. In 1992 I joined a NHS practice in Danbury, Essex as an associate and in 1997 settled in West Sussex, when I bought my practice in Crawley.
I joined the West Sussex LDC shortly after and have been a member ever since. I am also a Dental Practice Adviser to the Surrey & Sussex Local Area Team for NHS England. The NHS has been ever changing since 2005 when I became DPA. Hopefully I can have a positive and fair influence on some of the changes in my role as DPA and LDC member.
In my spare time my family and I are devoted to our passion for exploring remote places, normally in deserts, climbing mountains in the summer and skiing down them in the winter.
