After completing a BSc with honours in Zoology, James received his BDS with distinction in restorative dentistry in 2005.

He moved to Cardiff to take up a similar role, in 2020. His research interests include decision-making within primary care (for which he won the BSSPD research award in 2007 and the Schottlander oral presentation prize in 2008), teaching and assessment methods, the nanoscale measurement of dental hard tissues, repair of composite restorations, and healthy eating interventions for edentulous patients.
