Peter is the principal dentist and Clinical Director at Abbots Lodge Dental Practice. He graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1987 and then began working in Community Dentistry in Edinburgh, with people who had difficulty getting treatment in a general dental practice. After completing a postgraduate degree at the University of Dundee he worked in hospitals in West Lothian caring for people in long stay facilities and nursing homes as well as working in general dental practice. He has years of experience and a deep affection for dentistry of all kinds. For example, he loves to fit dentures almost as if it were his favourite hobby. A part of his master’s degree was dedicated to the study of dentures. As well as that he is passionate about caring for people who suffer from periodontal (gum) disease and has done extensive further training in orthodontic treatment.
Peter has a vision to create a warm, welcoming, friendly, professional and innovative service that leaves you feeling impressed with how far dentistry has come over the years and working together with the team here at Abbots Lodge Dental Practice, we hope you will agree, it has come on quite some way!
Peter lives in Ferring with his wife Kath and have 4 grown up children and 3 grandchildren.
With what little time he has left, Peter also works part time as one of the leaders of Redeemer Church in Worthing. He reads avidly, zones out from the world with oil paints and enjoys a bit of early U2 or renaissance polyphony.
