Sarah qualified as a general Dentist from Leeds University Dental School.

in 1989. After qualification she continued postgraduate studies whilst working initially in General Dental Practice in Scarborough followed by hospital based jobs as a House Officer at Birmingham Dental Hospital then for two years in Oral and Maxillo-facial surgery in Manchester and Preston. This culminated in attaining the Fellowship of Dental Surgeons from the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow.

Sarah then undertook a 3-year full time Orthodontic course at Manchester University Dental School which resulted in attaining the Membership in Orthodontics in 1996 from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and in addition, a Master of Science Degree in Orthodontics from the University of Manchester. This allowed Sarah to register as an Orthodontic Specialist with the General Dental Council.

As a Specialist Sarah has worked in both Hospital Orthodontic Departments and Specialist Orthodontic Practice gaining a wide experience of both complex, routine and inter-disciplinary orthodontic treatments. Sarah provides treatment for children, teenagers and adults and can offer a range of removable and fixed orthodontic treatment including the more aesthetic options of ‘Invisalign’ and ceramic (tooth-coloured) fixed appliances. She is very keen to be able to offer high quality treatments and invests much time in attending a wide range of courses. Sarah feels very fortunate to enjoy her work so much. The most rewarding part is to see a previously shy and self-conscious patient grow in confidence as a result of improving their smile.

Away from work much of Sarah’s time is spent with her family, including three children. She loves to be outside, either walking, running after the dog, mountain-biking, and paddle-boarding.
