Dental Hygienist

I qualified in 1989 from Leeds Dental Hospital, during my career I am lucky to have worked in both NHS and private practices and I worked at Unilever Research for six years in a research role and professional liaison and was lucky to do lot of travel in both of these roles; I was also an expert member on an Independent ethics committee for six years (CIREC).

I pride myself on regularly attending courses to keep up to date with the latest dental developments. I completed a 3 day periodontal master class in Manchester in 2017. I was awarded Test Drive hero under the dental hygiene programme of Oral B in June 2018 for the Northwest and attended a one day meeting in Birmingham with Hygienists from around the country. Other qualifications include tooth whitening, airflow for stain removal and guided bio film treatment (GBT) and perioflow for implant care and management; I am committed to continuing professional development.

I get great satisfaction from providing patients with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to maintain their teeth and implants. I have a particular interest in non surgical periodontal treatment. In my opinion Dentistry can only be successful with excellent home care. I particularly enjoy being part of a team and I get great satisfaction from having a significant role to play in improving the oral health of my patients

Out of work I am kept busy with my Daughter and all her extra curricula activities and when I have time for me I enjoy running and keeping fit, I have completed five marathons to date and aim to do one last one so long as I can stay injury free.

I am so excited to join the team at The Old Surgery in January 2019.
