Interests outside Dentistry

In his spare time, Jim likes to try and keep fit, running, swimming, cycling, windsurfing and the occasional triathlon. Jim played water polo at National League level for over 20 years, representing England ‘A’ in 2001, and playing twice in the European Cup Winners Cup. He reads voraciously and has partially moved into the modern era, using a Kindle for some books. Jim regularly swims Open Water, being part of a relay that swam the English Channel in 2018, and another that swam around Jersey in 2019. Training for a solo English Channel crossing has been scuppered by the Covid-19 pandemic! He did his first marathon – the Detroit Marathon, in October 2013, just scraping under 4 hours, a time he matched doing the Detroit Marathon in 2015. He has done 3 long distance triathlons, IromMan Vichy in 2016, and the Outlaw in 2016 and 2017. He is married to Nichoela and they have two boys.

Jim adheres to the General Dental Council’s Standards for the Dental Team.
