He has recently completed a Masters in Research (MDPH (MRes)) at the University of Manchester as a part of an In-Practice Fellowship training award from the NIHR, looking into abbreviated oral plaque and bleeding scores which were developed as a part of the Healthy Gums DO Matter toolkit. He also delivers a training programme on how to implement Health Gums DO Matter into practice with Primary Care Commissioning (PCC). His current work includes working on the Medical Histories DO Matter project for Greater Manchester LDN.
