Is a consultant in the Beds, Herts and Bucks Maxillofacial network.
Mr. Simpson has been a maxillofacial surgeon for over 30 years and is an expert in orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery)

He performs facial surgery at the highest level to complement the orthodontic treatment of Dr. Sherlock, where a combination of orthodontic braces and jaw surgery are required to produce the ideal jaw shape and position, as well as the best position of the teeth.

Such ‘combined’ treatments can optimise the cosmetic facial appearance and the functioning of the teeth and jaws.
Mr. Simpson also specialises in the placement of dental (osseointegrated) implants to replace missing or poor quality teeth, and restore the optimal dental and facial appearance and function.
