I began my career in dentistry when I qualified from the highly prestigious Karolinska Institute 1996.

I then gained a vast amount of experience during the 10 years in general dentistry as an associate in Stevenage and as a principal in Camden Town.

Since starting here at Markham Associates in December 2006, I have enjoyed seeing many of the patients here. I’m looking forward to meeting more of you in the future.
