Founder and owner of The Dental Channel. Clinical teacher in paediatric dentistry at King's College London Dental Institute. I wrote my first e-learning program in 1992 whilst working as an SHO in paediatric dentistry at King's College London, and then went on to work in all sorts of IT projects outside of dentistry. The Dental Channel was es...tablished in 1998 to develop e-learning courses for dentistry so I could combine my profession with my interests in IT. The first titles were developed for the Department of Health, and won numerous national awards. In 2006 the company pioneered the use of live web-based training, running monthly events since. I completed a Masters in Clinical Pedagogy at King's Learning Institute in 2015. More
