Claire graduated from Birmingham University in 1999. Since then she has lived and worked in the area as an associate in general practice.

To further her career and dedication to the profession she completed two, year-long courses on restorative and aesthetic dentistry at St Anne’s Dental Centre with Paul Tipton in 2003/2004. She was also awarded the Membership of the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners (MFGDP) by the Royal College of Surgeons in 2007.

This progression led Claire to embark on a three-year MSc in Advanced Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry at the University of Central Lancashire. It was during this time she was invited to join the team at Smile Concepts. She was successfully awarded her MSc in December 2012.

Claire was a finalist in the Restorative category of the National Smile Awards in 2010 and 2011 - the only dentist in the West Midlands to have been a finalist two years running.

She also lectures in anterior and posterior Composite Restorations on the Contemporary Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry Course at the Dominic Hassall Training Institute, and was granted status as an Associate Clinical Teacher in Education and Development on the Masters and CPD Team at Warwick Medical School at Warwick University in June 2013, where she lectures on the Restorative Dentistry MSc.

In 2014 Claire became the UK certified Bioclear instructor, and undertakes Level 1 and 2 courses at the International Bioclear Learning Centre in Solihull.

She is a fellow member of the British Academy of Aesthetic, Restorative and Implant Dentistry (BARRID), and has contributed to articles published in the International Journal of Advanced Clinical Dentistry.

Claire loves foreign travel, walking, skiing, and gardening. She has a passion for cooking and enjoys spending time with family and friends.
