Joanna qualified as a dentist from the University of Birmingham in 2007 with a distinction in clinical dentistry. She worked in general practice in both NHS and private practices until 2011, when Joanna joined the University first in a locum teaching position and then as a full time Lecturer.
Her research interests involve the interactions between epithelial cells and titanium products, with a clinical link to investigating potential causes or modifying factors in the disease process of peri-implantitis.
Joanna treats patients within a specialist care setting for one session per week and enjoys widening her experience of advanced restorative dentistry.
Her practical teaching varies between both clinical supervision and simulation teaching, as well as participating in the lecture programme for the BDS course. Joanna also teaches on the Biomedical Materials Science phantom head course.
