Ben gained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2001, going on to acquire additional valuable postgraduate skills and experience through hospital and general practice training.
Ben made the decision to follow a full-time career in general dental practice and in 2003 joined the team at the highly-regarded Queensway Dental Clinic, a mixed NHS and Private referral-based practice in Teesside. He remained here for over 12 years, becoming involved in research and in carrying out dental treatment on thousands of highly anxious patients using both his gentle manner and further honing his skills in conscious sedation techniques. Ben gained the Diploma in Conscious Sedation from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2007 and has gone on to provide mentorship, teaching and training to both newly qualified dentists and general dental practitioners. He has also helped to train experienced dental sedationists to train and mentor new seditionists.
Ben joined the wonderful team at Crystal Clear Dental Spa in January 2014 with the ambition of providing the highest level of care for all of his patients – especially those with dental fears. He finds great personal satisfaction in taking the time to enable patients to overcome the barriers to their dental care and transform them from “a quivering wreck” to a confident patient, in control of their own dental health. Ben enjoys learning new skills and is currently undergoing training in the use of simple removable “braces” to prevent snoring and hopes to further develop an interest in the provision of dental implants to replace missing adult teeth.
Outside of work Ben loves to spend time at home in North Yorkshire or out and about in the Lake District with his wife and two young daughters – looking after the chickens, guinea pigs and the family’s young boxer pup,. He has also been known to appear on stage and to sing and play the guitar – badly!
