Shirley qualified in Dentistry from The Royal London Hospital in 1992 and worked in various hospitals and practices before she began her orthodontic training at St Bartholomew’s (Bart’s) and The London Trust in 1997. She achieved her M Orth specialist qualification in orthodontics in 2000 and, after qualifying, she was awarded the Houston Research Scholarship and spent a year at the University of North Carolina in 2001.
Shirley then undertook further orthodontic consultant training at Bart’s and The London NHS Trust and gained valuable experience in treating patients requiring multidisciplinary care.
Shirley was appointed as Consultant Orthodontist at Bart’s Health Trust in 2004 and now works part-time as an Orthodontic Consultant at the new Royal London Hospital site.
At the Wapping Dental Centre, Shirley is able to offer the very latest treatments available, enabling her to treat adult and child patients who have simple, moderate and complex needs and to improve both the appearance and the function of their teeth.
Shirley is actively involved in the training of dentists and orthodontists and is a member of The British Orthodontic Society, The European Orthodontic Society and the British Lingual Orthodontic Society.
