I have over twenty years teaching experience at both undergraduate and taught post-graduate levels, particularly in relation to clinical periodontology and dental education. Since 2014, I have been the undergraduate academic lead for periodontology. In recent years I have been principally involved in academic leadership activities, both within the school and the wider university, in the roles of Associate Dean for Learning & Teaching (ADL&T – 2021 onwards) and Associate Dean for Quality & Academic Standards (ADQAS – 2015 to 2021). I have also been the panel lead for enhancement reviews of various dental health-related programmes in Lithuania (2015 and 2020).
