He is currently the Berkshire Local Dental Committee (LDC) Chair and has sat on the boards of many other NHS and dental organisations, and has excellent understanding of how dental commissioning decisions are made and implemented.
Pip believes that the biggest issue facing dentistry is the workforce recruitment crisis and in the need for participating and working with different stakeholders in the dental profession to resolve this. He is a Trustee of the International Dentist Organisation which supports overseas dentists and other members of the dental team planning to settle in the UK.
