He worked in London in private and NHS practice, and recently moved to Hitchin to start a new chapter – married life! Andrew is a very caring, ethical dentist who is very good with nervous patients and has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry, particularly Emax crowns and teeth whitening. Outside of work, he likes to keep active, running for charity, playing squash and ‘improving’ his golf game. He used to play rugby but had to take a step back from this as he couldn’t afford to injure his hands! He also enjoys cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
