Having qulaified from Queen’s, James started his dental career in Belfast in 1999. Two years later Ian Crutchley lured him back to his home town and he has been here ever since. He says, “Being an associate at such a large practice has given me experience in all aspects of dentistry. The high standard of the materials, equipment and staffing allows me to provide a service of which I am very proud. I believe in treating the patient as an individual and tailoring their treatment to meet their needs. No two patients or treatments are ever the same. If you’re keen to stop me talking about teeth just ask me about my beautiful wife, my beautiful daughter or cars. I can go on for hours about all three.”
