Simon specialises in Periodontology which involves all treatments related to the gums. This includes treatment for gum disease, bone regeneration, gum grafting and implant placement. Simon offers the full range of periodontal treatment including non-surgical and surgical intervention and his extensive training include the latest techniques for diagnosing, preventing and treating periodontal disease, as well as cosmetic periodontal procedures and the placement and repair of dental implants.
He qualified from Barts & The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and having done his vocational training he worked in a number of major London hospitals as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery performing complex dental and head-and-neck surgery.
He then spent time working in both specialist Oral Surgery and Restorative Dentistry hospital departments to gain further expert training in these areas. The surgical training involved a variety of oral surgery procedures including complex extractions, wisdom teeth removal, cyst removal, tooth exposures for orthodontic treatment, soft-tissue biopsies and treatment under local anaesthetic, general anaesthetic and sedation.
Working in the specialist Restorative Dentistry department provided exposure to diverse, complex conservative dentistry involving full-mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic dentistry including crown and bridge, implants and prosthodontics.
Since then he worked for a number of years in general dental practice broadening his scope of general and implant dentistry and he is now following his passion and completing his 4-year specialist training in Periodontology at Guy’s Hospital as well as working as a Staff-Grade Oral Surgeon.
Simon was awarded membership of the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons in 2011 and has published research papers and audits and lectured both nationally and internationally. He completed the osseointegrated implant course in 2012 under the tutelage of Dr Eddie Scher and has since been working on complex implant cases at Guy’s Hospital. He was awarded the Alpha Omega Outstanding Academic Achievement and was also the winner of the Malcolm Jenkins Scholarship. He was nominated for the British Society of Periodontology national Prize in 2017. He has recently been appointed as an Examiner at the Royal College of Surgeon.
