Founder and owner of The Dental Channel. Clinical teacher in paediatric dentistry at King's College London Dental Institute. I wrote my first e-learning program in 1992 whilst working as an SHO in paediatric dentistry at King's College London, and then went on to work in all sorts of IT projects outside of dentistry. The Dental Channel was established in 1998 to develop e-learning courses for dentistry so I could combine my profession with my interests in IT. The first titles were developed for the Department of Health, and won numerous national awards. In 2006 the company pioneered the use of live web-based training, running monthly events since. I completed a Masters in Clinical Pedagogy at King's Learning Institute in 2015.

2019: Our plans for our 21st year

1998-2019
This November we will be 21 years old.The time has flown by. When I established the company in the last century (!) to help dentists keep up to date by using 'interactive multimedia' on their home computers, there was no mandatory CPD scheme and the world wide web was often referred to as the 'world wide wait' with good reason.
