Professional profile

Nick graduated in Dentistry (BDS 1992) at Sheffield University and Medicine (MB BS 2001) at the Royal Free London. He was a Bowlder Henry Scholar 1997-2000.

Nick trained in oral and maxillofacial surgery in London at St George’s Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, University College Hospital and Eastman Dental Hospital.

He completed an NHS Training Group Interface Fellowship in Cosmetic Reconstructive Surgery at Sheffield Teaching Hospital and St John’s Hospital, Bruges, Belgium.

He passed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Specialist Exam from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh FRCSEd (OMFS) in 2009 and entered the GMC Specialist Register in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 2010.

Nick is based at the Charles Clifford Dental Hospital and is the clinical lead in Sheffield for oral and maxillofacial surgery.

His particular interests include facial aesthetic surgery, orthognathic surgery and the management of the post-traumatic facial deformity patient.

Nick runs joint orthognathic clinics with orthodontic colleagues. He is also happy to manage patients with facial trauma and dentoalveolar surgery for adult and paediatric patients.

Nick can also give oral surgery opinions on complex procedures like cysts, soft tissue lesions and jaw joint problems.

“We are not just concerned with the appearance of what’s inside the mouth. We are trained to think about the face as a whole and a lot of what we do is about improving the facial balance of people.”

Surgical ways of improving the aesthetics of the face include chin surgery, implants, hard tissue orthognatic surgery and soft tissue procedures such as face lifts.

Nick’s work has allowed him to use his cosmetic training to enhance the results in facial trauma and deformity patients. Using those same reconstructive techniques have also helped to refine his cosmetic procedures.
