Simon has been providing private dental treatment, ranging from simple fillings to full mouth reconstructions on natural teeth, since 1981 and titanium implants since 2001. He has special interests in tooth wear and the decision making between keeping teeth and the placement of implants.

He continues: 'I feel so lucky to be a continuing part of a very special and dynamic dental centre and to have seen the growth of aesthetic dentistry encompassing fields which have always interested me: 'form, design and colour'.
His external interests include: art (including drawing, photography and watercolour), music, (including guitar playing), architecture, cinema, food and wine.
Simon lives in Hampshire with his wife, Anne. They have two children, Giles and Elspeth. They also own a cottage, which may be rented, in the Lot Valley in Southern France.
