A practising dentist and Clinical Director of Thackeray Dental Care, Simon has an increasing involvement with medico-legal work, acting as an expert witness. An assessor for the BDA Good Practice Scheme, he has an exemplary knowledge of Quality Assurance and Compliance. As a result, his practice is one of only a handful with both Gold Investors in People and Gold BDA Good Practice status.
Resulting from the CQC involvement with dentistry, Simon became a vociferous and outspoken critic. This vehement opposition and the strength of his argument resulted in an appointment as a CQC Special Advisor, guiding their new inspection process.
In his spare time he’s an accomplished drummer and collects vintage drum kits. He’s also a regular triathlon competitor, benefitting from a realistic approach to his abilities.
