Ian qualified from Leeds in 1998. He went into NHS general practice after qualifying and was a general dental practitioner for many years. During that time, though a part time teaching role at Liverpool University, he developed a passion for periodontology and concentrated his postgraduate studies and teaching activities on perio whilst maintaining a busy general practice list. This culminated in him pursuing an MSc in Periodontology and ultimately becoming the Teaching Lead in Periodontics at Liverpool University and gaining a place on the GDC Specialist List in Periodontology.
