Sam came to the UK when he was 17 and was awarded his Bachelor of Dentistry from University College London. He went on to gain a Masters in Medical Science, from Sheffield University where he specialised in cosmetic dentistry and helped to run courses teaching other dentists.
He gained the Diploma in Post Graduate Dental Studies from Bristol University, where he studied endodontics, prosthetics, crown and bridge work.
Sam has also studied for the Primary Health Care Examination to become a Licensed Associate of the Faculty of Homeopathy – a subject of great interest to him. Sam is passionate about dental health and cosmetic dentistry. He has attended a wide range of courses and uses Orthodontics, Sedation and Acupuncture to strive to improve treatment for the benefit of his patients.
Before joining the team at Rocky Lane, Sam owned his own practice in Kent and also worked in general dental practice in Sheffield and Ashton Under Lyne. He has also worked as a volunteer dentist in Dhammakaya International Buddist Centre in Thailand.
He is passionate about getting the message across where oral health is concerned. When patients can see what the two of them have achieved together, it is motivational.
Sam is a keen photographer. He also practices Yoga and Tai Chi (every morning). He paints porcelain mugs and other china when he’s not looking after his young grand daughters. He is a frequent visitor to see his family back in Hong Kong.
