He completed his Vocational Training in Accrington in the North of England. 

Following a period of 2 years working in General Practice in Lancashire, Guy spent 10 years working as the community dentist on the island of North Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. 

Guy then worked as a tutor at the dental school in Dunedin, New Zealand before taking up a senior role in Paediatric Dentistry for NHS Highland in Scotland. 

Following this, Guy worked as a senior dentist / tutor on final year dental student outreach clinics in Inverness in the Scottish highlands, as a lecturer on the University of Highlands and Islands dental therapy BSc course and was a VT and CT1 trainer.

Guy studied (as an NHS Education for Scotland Remote and Rural fellow) for an MSc in Primary dental care (passed with distinction) at the University of Glasgow. Guy presented his MSc research project (on placement of preformed crowns on carious primary molars by dental therapists in vocational training) as a poster and abstract at the International Association for Paediatric Dentistry conference in Glasgow in 2015 and as a paper published in 2015 in the Primary Dental Journal.
