He then worked in general dental practice in Leeds alongside a part-time position in community paediatric dentistry before leaving the country to embark on a trip around the world, where he raised money to enable him to provide dental care in remote communities in the Peruvian Andes. On my return to the UK, Chris took a post teaching undergraduate dental students restorative dentistry and oral surgery at Leeds Dental Institute.

He completed his further advanced training at Leeds Dental Institute and York Hospital, providing complex orthodontic treatment involving the surgical, paediatric and restorative teams and continuing my research. He is a Consultant in Orthodontics at Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield and Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Leeds Dental Institute. His main area of interest is in treating severe orthodontic problems including patients with missing teeth, impacted teeth and those requiring jaw surgery.

He is currently providing specialist orthodontic treatment for children and adults at Eclipse Orthodontics with a range of aesthetic appliances.
