JP graduated from the University of Manchester in the UK with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree and practiced general dentistry for 16 years. After completion of the Primary examinations at the Royal Australian College of Dental Surgeons in 2013, he was keen to pursue his long-term ambition of becoming an orthodontist. He then undertook 3 years of full-time specialist orthodontic training; completing the Doctor of Clinical Dentistry degree at the University of Melbourne. He was also a clinical demonstrator for the final year dental students at Melbourne University.
JP was raised in the North of Ireland and moved to Australia in 2002. JP loves his social life in Melbourne, and his two dogs. He enjoys cycling, running and above all else, travelling to new destinations and going back to Ireland to see his family.
What satisfies JP the most about orthodontics, is the huge improvement in his patients self-esteem as a result of orthodontic treatment.
