Martin attended dental school between January 1995 and December 1999 in the north easterly town of Umea, Sweden. Studying in Umea meant moving 700 miles away from his parents. In Umea the snow arrives about November/ December time and it stays around until May!
So as soon as dental school finished, Martin packed his bags and moved to a sunnier climate in the South West of England.
Martin has now been working in Torbay for over 22 years and has been at Cherrybrook since 2004 and is loving every minute.
