Veterinary Surgeon

Dave grew up in Warwickshire, in the Midlands, and spent all his spare time on nextdoors' farm. After training at Bristol Veterinary School and graduating in 2007 he moved to Bridgend, South Wales for his first job. He remained there for four years doing mixed veterinary work and very quickly fell in love with Wales.


He has been with Valley Vets since 2011 and having spent 10 years in our Ystrad Mynach branch where his passion for veterinary dentistry grew, he is now located permanently in Valley Veterinary Hospital.  Having initially never considered following his father’s profession in dentistry, Dave has done further training in veterinary endodontics in Sweden and holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Veterinary Dentistry.  

In his spare time, he is a volunteer lifeboat crew member for the RNLI. 

His favourite city is San Francisco and one of his favourite places is Lake Derwent in the Lake District on a misty morning. "
