Tom has worked at Lincoln Smile Centre for nearly 6 years and has recently become joint partners with Niel. He has established himself within the practice as a friendly and caring professional who pursues excellent clinical standards.

Originally from Cheltenham, Tom graduated from Leeds University (2007) and has previously worked at Newcastle Dental Hospital for several years where he gained much experience in oral surgery, complex restorative and endodontic (root canal) techniques. Tom enjoys all aspects of dentistry but also has special interests in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry (crowns, tooth-coloured fillings, tooth whitening, veneers and bridges). Tom integrated Invisalign into Lincoln Smile Centre in 2011, and due to the large number of cases he undertakes, was classified as an Invisalign Gold provider 2014/2015. Invisalign is used for straightening teeth with invisible removable aligners, but also as a pre-restorative adjunct, to facilitate minimally invasive dentistry.

Tom has gained a reputation as a very approachable dentist, who has a great deal of experience in treating both nervous and phobic patients, using intra-venous sedation where required (he is certified with Core Certificate in Conscious Sedation). To expand his knowledge, develop his skills further and keep up to date with the latest techniques, Tom attends regular training courses and seminars in all aspects of dentistry, including Cerec restorations, implantology, Invisalign and intra-venous sedation. He is an active member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), which takes him around the globe to keep abreast of the most recent innovations in implant dentistry.Tom obtained his certificate in implant dentistry after an 18 month one-to-one course at Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, Sheffield 2011-2012, and has since successfully placed and restored over a hundred implants. Tom has subsequently been awarded a Diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2014.
