Jonathan qualified from Edinburgh University in 1990. Born in the Wirral area of Merseyside, he spent most of his school years in Inverurie after his father began a career with Shell oil company and the family moved to Aberdeenshire.

Jonathan has continued to take an interest in furthering his knowledge of dentistry since qualifying. This commitment has been reflected in his undertaking a two year part time postgraduate course in restorative dentistry at a centre of excellence in Manchester, led by the internationally renowned Dr Paul Tipton.

Jonathan also attended a one year course in Implant Restoration at the Edinburgh Dental Specialists Training Centre, the programme being led by world implant authority Dr Crawford Bain and renown specialist Dr Kevin Lochhead.He prides himself on treating patients “as if they are members of my own family”, with the care and attention that would achieve the very best results every time.

Away from work Jonathan loves cycling and rugby – mostly watching these sports now, rather than playing them. He attempts to play guitar and spends numerous hours in the garden, which needs a lot of maintenance!
