I have been owner and Principal Dentist of the Edinburgh Dental Studio since 2010. I trained at Dundee University, qualifying in 2002, and completed my Vocational Training in a practice in Kirkcaldy. I also worked in practices in Glenrothes and Dunfermline. Having established the practice and taken over the Randolph Practice, I have developed a keen interest in Adult Orthodontics and have now treated hundreds of patients. I am keen to lead my team to deliver the high standards that I expect and I am immensely proud that we won both Best Practice and Best Team in Scotland at the Dentistry Awards in 2017.
I am a new Dad, and I am Fiona’s partner, so much of my time is spent adapting to this new role. I am a keen footballer and although my playing days are coming to an end, I still play seven-a-side football on Thursday nights. I am also a keen fan of one of the Edinburgh football teams who I regularly watch throughout the season.
Having just joined the team at Edinburgh Dental Studio I am really excited to get started. I can’t wait to meet and get to know all the patients. I qualified from Glasgow University in 2015 and have worked in a number of practices across Glasgow, however I am looking forward to a change of scenery in Edinburgh.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, and strive to deliver the highest quality of care for my patients. It is important to me that I provide long lasting restorations and keep your mouth as healthy as possible.
In particular I have a passion for cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and find that giving a patient the smile they have always wanted can be so rewarding. In order to be able to provide these treatments I have attended multiple training courses since qualifying, most recently learning from one of the UK’s leading restorative dentists. This means I can provide the most up to date techniques in restorative dentistry, whilst being as kind to your natural teeth as possible.
In the near future I am planning to undertake training in placing dental implants and I hope this will be something that I can add to the team here at Edinburgh Dental Studio.
Outside of dentistry, I have always played football, previously at university level and now for an amateur club. I also enjoy cooking and playing golf when I can.
I joined the practice in 2018 and my focus is on allowing my patients to smile with confidence, and to take their best interests into what I do. I feel it is vital that I can support patients in making healthy choices about their ongoing dental health as well as improving smiles. My goal is to provide a gentle, high-quality, bespoke experience with an emphasis on embracing new technology while staying attuned with developments in dentistry.
I qualified from The University of Sheffield and returned to the UK following two years in New Zealand where I worked with and was mentored by some of the country’s leading dentists. My motivation to provide clinical excellence led to me being elected onto the Executive Committee for the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
My main area of interest lies in providing aesthetic restorative dentistry with an ethical minimally invasive approach. In 2020, I was a finalist in the Best Young Dentist category at the The Dentistry Awards, Private Dentistry Awards and Dentistry Scotland Awards. In 2021, I won an award at The Aesthetic Dentistry for an internal tooth whitening case and was a finalist in the Single Tooth Composite and Composite Smile Makeover categories.
In 2022 I won Best Young Dentist (Scotland and Northern Ireland) at The Dentistry Awards.
Outside of dentistry, I love travelling and all things sport, from playing hockey to going skiing and watching Liverpool FC.

I joined the practice in September 2019. The best part of my job is seeing patients achieve their dream smiles. The confidence at the end of the orthodontic treatment is one of the most rewarding parts of the jobs. Seeing patients who may have been insecure about their smile start non-stop smiling is lovely. I also love getting to know my patients along the journey as well.
I am a huge family person and devote a lot of time to my loved ones. My fiancé and I love exploring the Scottish Highlands and spending time in Spain (Barcelona and Palma are my favourite Spanish cities). I am also a big dog lover and hope to volunteer in dog rescue shelters in the future. I also enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and go to Pilates classes.
I was delighted to join the team at Edinburgh Dental Studio in August and meet all of our lovely patients. I’ve been a dental hygienist for 16 years, working in various dental environments, I’ve enjoyed working with my patients in all aspects of my role & hope I can bring my experience to help my new patients at EDS with any oral hygiene & health care needs.
Outside of work I love spending time with my husband and 2 children, following the kids around with their hobbies at rugby pitches & highland games.
I graduated from Edinburgh University in 2016 with First-Class Honours in Oral Health Science. Upon graduating, I spent several years working in a mix of NHS and private practices, both in Scotland and the Isle of Wight. I have had the privilege of working alongside some amazing clinicians and gaining further experience in dental lasers, whitening and facial aesthetics.
I joined Edinburgh Dental Studio in 2022 when the opportunity arose, having worked in the clinic as an agency nurse whilst studying for my dental therapy degree several years previously. I knew that the practice would be a fantastic place to work. It is well run, friendly and inviting, and every member of the team goes above and beyond to ensure the patients’ best interests are being met.
Outside of the clinic, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, in particular my 2 year old daughter.
With a background in dental nursing, I joined Edinburgh Dental Studio as their Patient Care Coordinator in 2018. The opportunity arose in October 2022 to step into a new role as the Practice Manager and I jumped at the chance to further my career within our wonderful practice.
My main focus is patient experience and I am continuously looking at how we can improve our service and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure all our patients leave the practice with a smile.
Edinburgh Dental Studio is a great place to work, with a great group of people who genuinely love to help others.
Outside of work, I like to travel, go to festivals and spend time with my friends and family.

I love getting to know patients and watch their confidence grow every appointment as they are getting closer to being happy with their teeth. Seeing them love their smile by the end of treatment is the most rewarding part of my job.
If I’m not outdoors and exploring new places, I will most likely be spending time with my niece and three nephews. I’m also quite a camping enthusiast especially around the north of Scotland and I have recently become partial to paddleboarding.
I started with Edinburgh Dental Studio in January 2020 as a trainee dental nurse and trained in the practice. Since then, I have completed my college course and training, receiving a SVQ level 7 in dental nursing in May 2021.
I really enjoy how each day is different and I get to be involved with so many different treatments! I also enjoy working within such a great team.
I love to spend time with my family and friends. I have a little sister who I love to spend my days off with. I also have a dog at home who keeps me on my toes. I love to get out and about and travel to new places when I can!

I enjoy our orthodontic treatments the most as it’s a life changing decision for patients and being in this journey with them, supporting patients throughout treatment, makes my job extremely rewarding!
