Richard graduated in 1991 from the Queen's University of Belfast with both anatomy and dental degrees. He worked in several renowned Oral and Maxillofacial surgical units, then undertook his three year specialist orthodontic training at Guy's Hospital (becoming a qualified specialist in 1998), followed by two years of higher training at the Leeds Dental Institute. Along the way, Richard has been awarded three university degrees, plus two Fellowships by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Since 2001 he has worked as a hospital consultant orthodontist in Peterborough and in specialist private practice.

Richard has a proven track record of clinical excellence and innovation, and is recognised as the UK expert in the latest orthodontic field of bone anchorage. He designed the InfinitasTM Mini-implant System (www.infinitas-miniimplant.co.uk), the most widely used orthodontic implant in the UK, and selected for USA distribution by Dentsply-GAC Ltd. Richard has lectured multiple times on bone anchorage at the British Orthodontic Conference, and run mini-implant clinical courses throughout the UK. He's also lectured numerous times abroad, including at conferences and universities in the USA, Europe and South Africa. He has published dozens of peer-reviewed papers, and has written a new orthodontic textbook on mini-implant clinical techniques, published in 2013. He is an honorary "Key Opinion Leader" for Dentsply-GAC Ltd (USA), and has provided a series of orthodontic webinar lectures for the "Clinical Alliance for Research and Education" (USA).

Richard is also Associate Editor for the Journal of Orthodontics, a referee for several orthodontic journals, and a specialty examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Most recently, he has developed a clinical interest in the use of digital technology in both orthodontics and orthognathic surgery, and is the clinical consultant for the Byte APS orthodontic positioner system (www.byteaps.com).
