Mr Merrick qualified in both Medicine and Dentistry at Sheffield University England. After basic surgical training he undertook his specialist training for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (the surgery of the face, mouth and jaws) in Manchester. During that additional five years training he specialised in surgery for cancer of the head and neck and facial reconstruction. He also undertook specialist fellowships in Head and Neck cancer treatment in Glasgow and also a Cosmetic Facial Surgery fellowship in the United States.
His main interests are in the treatment of head and neck cancer, cosmetic facial surgery, facial plastic surgery for skin cancer of the head and neck, surgery for salivary gland disease, oral surgery and dental implant surgery including bone grafting to the face and jaws.
Much of Mr Merrick's work in head and neck cancer revolves around a commitment to providing the best form of rehabilitation from the surgical impact of cancer to the face and jaws. This often involves working closely with his colleagues in restorative dentistry particularly with the provision of dental implants to improve the quality of life for such patients.
Along with a busy family life with his young children he enjoys sailing and cycling and is a member of Starcross Yacht Club on the River Exe.
