    I qualified at the Turner Dental School, Manchester in 1975. I have been a general dental practitioner since then. In 1977  I introduced “Relative Analgesia” into my practice, as an associate and have used this technique on a daily basis to successfully assist over 5000 patients, with over 7000 administrations, overcome their dental anxiety.
