After graduating from Bristol University in 1998, Peter spent five years working as a trainee Oral Surgeon in various hospitals in the South West of England including local specialist teams based at Poole General, Royal Bournemouth and Dorchester Hospitals. He spent two years studying for his postgraduate dental surgical examinations (MFDS) and published four scientific papers in peer-reviewed international dental journals. During this time, he also gained considerable experience working alongside specialists at Bristol Dental Hospital. In 2003 he moved to general dental practice, he joined Hoburne Dental Practice in 2005 and became a partner at the practice shortly afterwards.

Following his hospital training Peter went on to advance his cosmetic, restorative and implant skills with seven years of study at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute. During this period, he was taught directly by some of London's leading dental specialists, completing the Certificate Course in Restorative Dental Practice along with further studies in the fields of Applied Clinical Dental Materials and Partial Denture Prosthetics. The study period culminated in gaining a distinction passing a four-year Diploma in Implant Dentistry in 2011. In 2014 Peter passed the prestigious Fellowship examination of the Faculty of General Dental Practitioners.
