"Most Outstanding Moment"
I am a local resident and have been educated and brought up in Blackburn. Having lived here for over 30 years, I have a good understanding about local people and their dental concerns. I am married and have two beautiful young boys. My wife is a local GP and we are both equally passionate health care professionals who are dedicated in attaining optimal health for our patients and working hard to maintain it.
From a professional perspective, after graduating from Liverpool University in 2000, I started work in Accrington at Antley Villa Dental Practice. I have a perfectionist attitude to detail coupled with an amiable, considerate and gentle chair side manner. I firmly believe in clinical excellence delivered with passion.
To this end I have passed the ‘Key Skills Portfolio’ component of the MFGDP Faculty examination. I am also a trained and approved Appraiser for East Lancashire Primary Care Trust, which ensures that I not only surpass a fundamental professional requirement personally but also help fellow practitioners do the same.
In order to ensure my knowledge and skills are right up to date I have completed over 1,000 hours of post graduate study and training in the last five years alone and on a plethora of subjects, which include smile enhancements and makeovers, dental implants, gum disease, how teeth meet in harmony, headaches, snoring, ‘invisible’ white fillings and natural looking dentures.

Why I Use Sedation Dentistry
I am married with four wonderful children who take up all of my free time.
I completed my dental training at the University of Manchester, qualifying in 1991. Thereafter, I worked in my native Ghana until 1999 when I returned to the UK and subsequently joined the team at Antley Villa Dental Practice in Lancashire.
I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and attend various postgraduate courses both in the UK and abroad, in all fields of dentistry helping me to remain at the cutting edge of the latest advancements.
I have completed courses in implantology, sedation, occlusion and periodontics. My main interest is inaesthetic dentistry and I am a member of the Association of Dental Implantologists and the International Team for Implantology.
Khalid and I took over the practice in February 2010 and have worked hard since then to build on the solid foundation laid down by our predecessors. We aim to surpass the high standards of clinical care already established and to further enhance the services on offer.
We are approaching exciting times for the practice and I certainly hope that you can join us, on what promises to be a remarkable journey. Looking forward to meeting you soon in person.
