Ken ‘retired’ from the RAF in 2004 to take up his current Consultant post at the Eastman and Lovat Lane practices. As well as teaching, Ken now works in private practice and enjoys managing complex multidisciplinary and aesthetic cases, often involving complex reconstruction or replacement of the teeth by implants, crowns, bridges or veneers, whichever is most appropriate. Healthy foundations are vital for successful restoration, and Ken will also carry out the endodontic and periodontal treatment to provide the optimum environment for restoration. Based on his interdisciplinary specialist consultant training and general practice experience, the most appropriate restorative approach can be chosen.
