Meet the team

Mr J. M. Sch​oley (Clinical Lead)

I qualified as a dentist in Birmingham in 1992. After four years training in surgery as a senior house officer I worked in the community dental service before starting specialist training and a Masters degree in orthodontics in Liverpool in 1998. After qualifying as a specialist I continued with further specialist training in complex multidisciplinary cases, receiving a Fellowship in Orthodontics in 2003. I was appointed as consultant orthodontist at UHNS and took over as lead clinician in 2004. I'm an examiner for the Royal college Of Surgeons of Edinburgh as well as being the regional postgraduate dental advisor. My special interest is innovative use of temporary anchorage devices for treatment of open bite. I have lectured on clinical orthodontics in Europe, the Middle East and the United States.
