Julie teaches on the BDS International Programme and is Module Lead for Clinical Knowledge, Management of Oral Disease and Minor Oral Surgery. Julie has been involved in clinical dental education for more than 25 years and has particular interests in oral surgery, management of medical emergencies and conscious sedation.
Julie started her role as BDS International Clinical Skills Lead in May 2022. Her main role was to take lead responsibility for the planning and delivery of clinical skills teaching on the Preston Campus. She has been working in dental education, undergraduate and postgraduate. Prior to joining us, most of her working life was based at the Universities of Leeds and Edinburgh.
After completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (UoL), she went onto become a Fellow of Higher Education Academy in 2005. She obtained a PhD in Tissue Engineering in 2011, and has supervised students to Bachelors, Masters, Doctorate and PhD level. Clinically Julie has worked as an NHS Consultant in Oral Surgery and currently works in private clinical practice providing oral surgery for adults and children in the community. She is currently President of the British Association of Oral Surgeons (BAOS).
