Rob has a particular interest in placing Dental Implants receiving training in Boston and extensive training throughout the UK including Sheffield Dental School and under Paul Tipton, a well known specialist and trainer in implantology and cosmetic dentistry

He is especially interested in cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics …. "Art school would have been my next choice to dentistry"
