I started In Dentistry over 12 years ago, joining an outsourced Dental support company called OneSG (that then became Igloo Healthcare). I joined as their IT Manager, with a ‘team’ of just me. I had been in IT for years. IT was a passion for me since the very first time my dad brought home a ZX81 Computer when I was about 9.

I started In Dentistry over 12 years ago, joining an outsourced Dental support company called OneSG (that then became Igloo Healthcare). I joined as their IT Manager, with a ‘team’ of just me. I had been in IT for years. IT was a passion for me since the very first time my dad brought home a ZX81 Computer when I was about 9.

Early Dentistry Career
I was in the very fortunate position (being so new to Dental IT and needing to learn all about it) of helping Portman Healthcare (now Portman Dentalcare) grow from just 3 practices to where they are today. I say fortunate because not only did I work with some amazing people inside Portman (many of whom are still there) but it let me learn about all the intricacies of Dental IT at a slower pace than being dropped in at the deep end.

I really enjoyed learning what makes the IT in a Dental Practice tick. I quickly learned who all the main providers were, who supported them and who the best guys to go to were for help. I am genuinely forever grateful to those guys for their support in my early days while I was learning.
I beavered away, growing a great team at Igloo and supporting Portman Healthcare, as well as Bupa (when they first moved into Dentistry) and also about 20 other smaller, independent Practices.

After some changes, an idea formed to start up on my own, so with a bit of luck, a brand-new company registration, ThreeSixty IT was born.

I guess I have a different mindset to others, I like to help – for me it’s not always about the financial reward. I just like to help where I can. I was helped massively when I started my journey by people inside some of the larger companies (like Exact, Kodak, Kavo and Clarke Dental) and just like to do my bit to “pay it forward”.

I am very active in the dental forums on facebook, and will always jump in and offer my help and advice if I feel I have something to add.

This blog started as a bit about me, but became more about ThreeSixty IT because I guess I am so interwoven into it and passionate about it being a success.
