My sessions in the department involve the clinical chairside supervision and teaching of undergraduate dental students in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry.

I participate in other aspects of student teaching including Local Anaesthesia Symposium, Clinical Activity Mentoring and Monitoring Sessions (CAMMS) and Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) for prospective dental students.

I have a particular interest in teaching and preparing the students for a future career in General Dental Practice.
