James has owned and run a Specialist Referral Orthodontic Practice in Finaghy, Belfast since 1995. Over the last 23 years he has developed his skills and experience to carry out complex orthodontic treatment for the patients of his GDP colleagues both under the NHS and privately. As a certified user of both Invisalign and Orthocaps clear aligners, Inman Aligners and Incognito lingual appliances, as well as the latest generation of 3M Ceramic brackets he has developed an interest providing discreet orthodontic treatment where this is possible. As a consequence an increasing part of his practice involves providing orthodontic treatment solutions for adults as well as children.
Over the past 10 years James has been involved in negotiations with the Department of Health through the Dental Practice Committee (BDA) helping to shape how orthodontic care is delivered by the NHS. He has also lectured on orthodontic matters to GDPs and DFTs on behalf of NIMDTA and Finaghy Orthodontics.
Away from work he is keen on films (he is really a frustrated film director) and most weekends can be found mountain biking on the trails in Barnett’s Desmesne, and has the bruises to prove it!
