James qualified in 1992 from King’s College London. He has worked exclusively in the City since 1995. He took two years off to gain a masters degree in Conservative dentistry at the world-renowned Eastman Dental Institute.
James is a past-president of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). The AACD is the largest international dental organisation dedicated to advancing the art and science of cosmetic dentistry.
He lectures on tooth whitening techniques to other dentists and is on the board of the British Dental Bleaching Society. Lectures internationally on minimal invasive dentistry and marketing your practice.
James writes for Maxim magazine and has appeared on many television and radio interviews. He has twice been listed in Private Dentistry’s poll of the top 20 Elite Dentists in the UK in 2011 and 2012. He has been voted the most influential person in Dentistry in the UK in 2011 & 2012 by trade magazine “Dentistry“.
He is a trustee of Heart Your Smile, a registered charity set up to increase the attendance at the Dentist.
His book Brush is a number one best seller on Amazon and ALL the profits go to charity Dentaid. The first project is in Malawi where James is leading a dental team to deliver a skills transfer workshop.”
No matter how hard you try, with the wrong tools you will achieve nothing. James shares his blueprint to create both a successful life and dental practice.
Heart Your Smile is the other initiative that I am involved in, an initiative that a group of us in the dental industry have launched to promote positivity in Dentistry.
The first project James plans to assist Dentaid with is a Dental programme for the poor in Malawi. He has donated a surgery to Malawi and is taking a team in July 2013.
“May I say that not only are you a very excellent dentist, but you have succeeded in motivating your team such that attendance at your practice is a pleasure. I am grateful for the enthusiasm, time and expertise that I have been fortunate enough to benefit from.”
“I have had a bad history with dentists in several countries, due to how they have treated me as their patient – as not important or not included in procedures. Having knocked my front teeth out and requiring crowns, then full braces including head gear and elastic bands, a tooth abscess, each of my wisdom teeth removed individually and several big filings, I always left the dentist chair feeling battered, tortured and in complete trepidation of the next visit.
Some time ago I was recommended by a family member to try the Bow Lane Dental Group. The recommendation was so enthusiastic, I thought maybe this was just a ruse to get me back in to the dentists chair (I had started an avoidance campaign).
I am now a complete convert – the staff are lovely, they listen to your needs, there is no judgement, and no sales pitch. They make you feel cared for and they treat you like a human being, making sure you are comfortable at all times, and extremely gentle. I have had terrible experiences and because of that I had become a tense, fearful dental patient who would put off appointments. After my first procedures today at BLDG I now know that is a thing of the past. The extra care and attention they show you as well as the wonderful dvd glasses all work to relax and calm you and keep you distracted while they work their magic. I never thought I could be comfortable during a dental treatment and actually forget what was going on!
At my first appointment I was also very forceful that I didn’t want to do a particular piece of dental work that I should have done 15 years ago, now this is something I will definitely discuss with the team as I couldn’t feel more looked after or in better hands.
I cannot recommend BLDG highly enough – if you are worried about having any dental work from a check up through to a major procedure, visit BLDG and you’ll experience a modern dental practice who puts you and your needs first.
I can honestly say I am not living in fear of my next appointments! Thank you James, Emma and everyone else who has looked after me so far.”
“I just want to say how absolutely over the moon I am with my new smile. I’ve lived with my crooked teeth for a number of years, and it was only as my wedding approached that I really wished something could be done to improve my smile. In three appointments you have given me the smile that I never thought I would have. My friends, family and work colleagues are so impressed, all have commented upon the amount of smiling I am doing at the moment and how natural my teeth look.
As you know it’s a bit of a distance for me to travel, but it has been well worth it. I’ve never been a lover of dentists but I think coming to Bow Lane has changed that – I certainly won’t be scared of a check up in future!”
