Mr Woods qualified as a Dentist from St Bart’s and the Royal London Hospital in 2002. On graduation he undertook training posts in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, General Dental Practice, and Special Care Dentistry. He subsequently trained as a Doctor at UCL and the Royal Free Medical School, qualifying in 2009. Following junior surgical training posts in Orthopaedics, Plastic Surgery, General Surgery, ENT and Intensive Care he was accepted for higher surgical training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in the South Thames Region. This period of training included posts in two Level 1 Trauma centres and two Regional Head and Neck Cancer centres. On completion of his higher training Mr Woods undertook a fellowship in Craniofacial Surgery at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and another fellowship in Maxillofacial Surgery at St George’s Hospital, London. Both Fellowships provided valuable additional experience in the management of complex facial deformity.
