Neal qualified from Cardiff Dental University with an Honours degree. He has a keen interest in oral surgery and minimally invasive restorative dentistry. He also enjoys using the latest techniques and materials.
Within two years Neal gained two extra qualifications. One was a Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Education and another in Dental Law and Ethics. He has also attended courses and gained certifications in Invisalign (teeth straightening), advanced and basic certification in delivery of Botox type A Botox and rotary endodontics. Most recently he has been chosen to be an Educational Supervisor (trainer) for newly qualified graduates.
He thoroughly enjoys charitable work and most recently had the opportunity to visit the rural communities outside the capital of Ghana, Accra with Global Brigades.

He plans on carrying out more charity work in the future.
Neal also enjoys playing golf and squash in his spare time.
