Happy New Year!!
Posted On: January 30, 2014
After all the excitement and gluttony of Christmas life is back to normal, we are perhaps a little rounder and poorer, some of us detoxing, joining the gym again, making resolutions and finding January generally rather gloomy. Almost wishing it away for the first signs of spring. For those of you who read regularly you […]

Christmas is upon us once again…. Shrewsbury is such a charming place at this time of year. The indoor market is fantastic for presents with locally produced gifts and really amazing food…it was the source of inspiration for my ‘secret santa!’ I easily got all my presents sorted this year…. along with a trip to […]
26th September…Another Conference!!
Posted On: September 23, 2013
This time in Manchester – equally glamorous as Paris I’m sure you will agree. So far, so much fun, I am having breakfast over the river and the sun is trying to emerge casting autumnal shadows on the metropolitan skyline. I love this time of year as summer draws to a close and the crisp […]
25th July..Six Month Smiles
Posted On: July 27, 2013
Just back from Paris for the Incognito users meeting – I already knew Incognito was a fantastic brace and the most aesthetic you can get – completely invisible as it is hidden on the inside surfaces of the teeth. But it seems it keeps getting better as 3M push more into its research and development. […]
Hey I’m enjoying this…
Posted On: June 3, 2013
Hey I’m enjoying this, no braces my retainers look great, and yes I’m wearing them full time. Being a coffee fiend it’s sometimes annoying having to whip them out for hot drinks, I’m in Bellinis today and I have put them in my little tub for safe keeping while I enjoy my cappuccino. I recently […]
Three words……they are off!
Posted On: April 4, 2013
Three words……they are off! And we all know what I’m talking about I am reminded of when I met with some old friends recently; I love them for their brutal honesty, quickly dismissing my vanity and asking me why was I bothering with all this brace treatment? In fact, they were almost interrogating me; why […]
patience is a virtue!
Posted On: February 10, 2013
Patience! That’s all I can say.. I stated confidently at the end of last year that my braces would be off in February. It’s February already and I still have them! We encountered a small unexpected problem, essentially due to the shape of one of my premolars, which necessitated an extra adjustment in order to […]
Christmas with Braces…
Posted On: December 19, 2012
I love Christmas and it’s only a week away! I hope everyone is feeling festive… all of you with fixed braces will be avoiding the chocolate advent calendars this year, but Christmas is not just about food.! Admire the wonderful decorations adorning the cobbled streets, and the magical window displays created by our independent traders. […]
Ping! I now have to wear elastics
Posted On: October 31, 2012
Ping! I now have to wear elastics which attach to the brace at the back on the top and run to the lower anterior region, they will improve my bite. I keep forgetting to put them back in after eating and they are lying discarded all over the house. My friends think it’s hilarious, I […]
The ultimate wire
Posted On: September 26, 2012
My treatment has been sailing along marvellously, thanks to Philip. I can hardly believe that it was time to put the final wire in the upper arch this week. So in it went, I hardly felt it, but later on eating dinner…. along came the pain… Ouch! This one hurts… Lucky I have a day […]
No one need know!
Posted On: August 26, 2012
Increasingly we all care about our looks, (but we hate to admit it) which explains why adult orthodontics is growing at such a rate. We want to look our best and our teeth it seems are not being overlooked. It’s great that kids these days have no hang ups about orthodontic appliances and get so […]
My smile is wider and I am starting to feel proud
Posted On: July 7, 2012
My lower incisors are now absolutely perfectly straight -and I am delighted. My friends are starting to comment – they can’t believe it’s been that quick for this huge difference! My smile is wider and I am starting to feel proud…I even put pink elastics on last time for extra summer holiday glamour! Despite this […]

I have to say Shrewsbury is looking especially beautiful at the moment, adorned in bunting, the flowers in Quarry park have blossomed and we’re all excited about the long weekend?. I’ve been doing my bit putting blue, red and white colours onto braces ‘ a patriotic grin should bring cheer to any celebration! The ‘Woowa’ […]
Wow- my teeth have moved so much!
Posted On: June 2, 2012
Wow- my teeth have moved so much! In three weeks my lowers are definitely straighter, my joy when looking in the mirror completely surpasses the first week of tenderness. There was no spontaneous pain, only when eating and bringing my teeth together, no big deal and I didn’t take any pain killers. This put me […]
I spend every day creating perfect smiles
Posted On: April 4, 2012
As an orthodontist I spend every day creating perfect smiles and very happy patients. But I must admit that my teeth aren’t perfect and so I’m hardly an ambassador for my profession. I wasn’t lucky enough to have a fixed brace when I was at school and so it’s been nagging away at me for […]
