Born in London, he moved to Bournemouth as an infant and has lived here ever since. Andrew’s first dental experiences were at 740 Dental where he has been treated all his life. Indeed, it was while he was visiting regularly for orthodontic treatment at the age of 12 that his mother remembers him remarking that “They are all so friendly and having so much fun in there, that is where I would like to work when I am older” And so, at the age of 24, Andrew did his first day’s work as a dentist in the very room where he had been treated that very day.
Andrew qualified from University College Hospital in 1987 having achieved the Dentsply Prize for Restorative Dentistry. He took up his first position at 740 Dental as an associate dentist and after a brief period in 1992 helping a colleague set up a practice in the Forest of Dean, Andrew returned to 740 as a partner.
In 1990, Andrew became a lecturer on the local dental nurses’ course for the National Certificate and subsequently became a National Examiner on the National Examination Board for Dental Nurses.
In 2007, Andrew trained in and started to provide Invisalign treatment and has since developed a comprehensive cosmetic orthodontic service for his own patients and on referral.
Andrew has a keen interest in cosmetic dentistry offering a complete smile design service including single visit porcelain restorations, facial aesthetics and cosmetic orthodontics. Trained by Prof Bob Khanna, Andrew offers anti-wrinkle treatment with botulinum toxin and replacement of lost tissue with dermal fillers.
Andrew has a great life balance with a wonderful family. He married in 1993 and has three children who are each successful in their own lives. His eldest daughter is a footwear designer/developer, his second is a staff nurse and his son is studying anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London. Andrew is proud also to have a grand daughter who is just under 3 years old.
Andrew has a keen interest in motorcycling, computer technology, motor racing and has recently taken up running cycling again. Andrew and his son also spend many Sundays airsofting at the Ground Zero site in Somerley Park.
Dentist and Partner of 740 Dental
James was born in Aylesbury and as child was brought up in the market town of Thame in Oxfordshire. James undertook his dental training at Guy’s Hospital, University of London. Inspired by his tutors James developed interests in providing intricate treatments for gums, providing dental implants and aesthetic treatments. He went on to do further postgraduate diplomas at the Eastman Dental Institute in London and trained with Professor Chanavas of Lille University to develop his knowledge on dental implants. Other areas of dental interest are orthodontics using techniques including Six month Smiles and the Invisalign.
James enjoys the digital development of dentistry which enables his patients to visualise how aesthetic changes are possible with either orthodontics or restorative techniques. This is a reassuring step to have when considering your treatment.
In 1998 in search to be closer to the sea James moved from London work in Ferndown, then made a further leap to be even closer to the sea to take up partnership at 740 Dental in 2008.
James is married to Catherine who he met at Guy’s Hospital, Catherine is a local doctor and they have two children Daniel and Freya. As a family they all enjoy sailing, most of their weekends in the summer are spent on the water in Poole Harbour. As the children have been growing up they have spent much time teaching them how to sail which has proved to be rewarding as they now race dinghies on their own. When the weather is less inspiring for sailing they go walking in the Purbecks, cycling in the New Forest and like visiting Cornwall in hope to improve their surfing.
There are a couple of steps leading to the front door but these are accessible to wheelchairs. Ramp access is available to the back door in the side passage - please ring the bell provided for attention. We also have several surgeries on the ground floor with wheelchair access.
