Both undergraduate degrees obtained in Trinity College Dublin with successful attainment of an academic scholarship. Subsequent to his junior doctor core training and after obtaining the necessary memberships in surgery and dentistry, he took time out to undertake a research degree resulting in the successful awarding of an M.D. degree from Trinity College Dublin.

He moved to the UK in 2018 to undertake specialist training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery based at East Grinstead with rotations along the South Coast between Brighton and St.Richard’s Hospital resulting in the award of fellowships in both the Faculty of Dentistry in RCSI and OMFS in RCS Edinburgh.
