Andrew- Principal Dentist and Practice Owner:
I was born and educated in the Forest of Dean and gained my Dental Degree with Honours from UC Hospital in London. I continued in a specialist oral surgery unit in London as a Senior House Officer. I was fortunate enough to return to my hometown of Coleford and set up the Willow Tree Dental Practice in 1991. I then completed further training in Orthodontics and worked part time with consultants at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
Whilst continuing my interests in dentistry both General and Cosmetic, I undertook lengthy courses in the placement and restoration of Dental Implants and have been involved in this advanced field dentistry for over 13 years.
