He worked initially at the department of prosthetics at Manchester Dental Hospital before moving to North Manchester General Hospital gaining more experience in its maxillofacial unit. After gaining his advanced City and Guilds in crown and bridgework, he joined the RAF dental branch in 1980 for two years.

In August 1985 John set-up Portland Ceramics, covering crown and bridge, prosthetics and implantology.
