Dr Robert Finch arrived in West Yorkshire from Oxfordshire in 1996 to study dentistry at Leeds University.
At University he became Leeds Medics and Dentists Rugby Club secretary and qualified from Leeds Dental Institute in 2001. Rob has spent the past 19 years gaining experience in practices in the area and furthering his dental ambitions.
He has maintained his interest in postgraduate education, regularly attending postgraduate courses. In 2008 he completed the Royal college of Surgeons Diploma in Restorative Dentistry, a 2 year course involving completing and presenting several complex cases, regular lectures and tuition, essays and examinations.
In 2010 Rob completed a dental implant course and concurrently a research project to attain an MSc with distinction in Restorative Dentistry from Leeds University. This degree is designed to recognise a very high standard of many aspects of dentistry and give him the skills and knowledge to provide the highest level of dental care.
Rob was an early adopter of a microscope for most aspects of dental care and has lectured on the subject. This led to a particular interest in endodontics for which he has been receiving referrals for several years. In 2018 Rob started using the Invisalign clear orthodontic braces system in the practice as an adjunct to his restorative work allowing him full versatility in treatment planning and undertaking complex cases.
Most recently Rob has become a trainer for overseas qualified dentists (PLVE trainer). He has found this new job very rewarding as he hopes the current trainee has!
Rob is married to Carlie who is also a dentist and has a daughter, Pixie, and son, Aubrey. They live in York and enjoy sport, food and music. Rob is a keen sportsman and trumpeter, enjoying rugby (vicariously these days through Aubrey!) and Crossfit and trumpeting in a local jazz band.
