Michael graduated from Newcastle Dental School in 1982, where he worked for a year before heading off to Leeds and Liverpool Dental Hospitals. He returned to his native North East in 1985 and took over this practice in 1988. Whilst developing the practice and expanding the dental team, he held a part time teaching post for over ten years at Newcastle Dental Hospital. The move to private dentistry has allowed him to maintain his high standards of dental care, which has allowed him to offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry, including dental implants. He is constantly furthering his knowledge and staying up to date with current dental thinking by attending postgraduate courses and symposiums. He is a keen sportsman and has regularly run the Blaydon and Great North Runs, in addition to competing in team squash. An enthusiastic cyclist, he maintains his green credentials by regularly cycling to work.

He has an interest in preventive dentistry and has lectured throughout England on the subject. He is a keen amateur cook and photographer and has been learning to play drums for the past couple of years as it is safer than buying a motor bike.
