About Me

I joined the Dental Law Partnership in 2005, which makes me one of the longest running employees in the business at the moment. 


I have 18 years of experience working within the legal field and my two main practice areas are clinical negligence and personal injury. When working for the Dental Law Partnership, I focus my efforts on dental negligence claims within England and Wales. I have learned a great deal about the legal profession during my time at the company, and I am very passionate about my work.


As one of the longest running employees of the Dental Law Partnership, I have gained lots of hands-on experience when working with my clients. Since starting, I have worked my way up to the position of associate solicitor, and my unique skill set has been developed over the course of my time here.

I have a particular interest in cases involving nerve damage during dental treatment, and I also have a history of handling complex negligence claims. However, I am fully trained in all areas of the dental legal field, so I should be able to help you, regardless of your situation.

You can read more about my previous work by going to my page on the Review Solicitors website.


As a trained associate solicitor, I have completed a law degree. I have also been admitted to the Bar of England and Wales.

I am SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) regulated, and I was admitted to the organisation as a solicitor in 2007.


During my career at the Dental Law Partnership, I have worked on many notable cases. Two of my most recent cases that stand out are:

  • Mr Grundy – In 2022, Mr Grundy was awarded £10,500 compensation from his former dentist after a dental negligence claim was brought forward by the Dental Law Partnership. The claimant underwent years of needless treatment as a teenager after a poor dental consultation, which led to further issues developing. The distress involved was entirely unnecessary, so the claimant and his mother were understandably happy to reach an out-of-court settlement of £10,500.


If you’d like to see if I can help you with your dental malpractice claim, please contact our team on 0800 152 2038.

National Teeth Whitening Day

Reality TV show portrayals and the social media frenzy of people obsessed with the idea of perfectly straight, white teeth, are part of the reason a third of people under 35 living in the UK are turning to cosmetic dental treatments. Over time we have been lead to believe that if your teeth do not look a certain way then they are not perfect. And days like “National Teeth Whitening Day” only further fuel that idea.
