Lisa trained to be a dental nurse at North Staffordshire Hospital and qualified in 1994. Originally working in an Orthodontic practice, she then developed an interest in practice management and came to join Steve Lomas, as the Practice manager from when the practice opened in 1998. Lisa has continually gained numerous Practice Management qualifications and new skills over the years.
Lisa is involved in many aspects of the practice, including, marketing, Health & Safety, quality standards, accounting and ensuring the practice runs smoothly and efficiently, and essentially relieving the dentist of some responsibility. Lisa is extremely proud of The Old Surgery brand and the dedicated team of staff that delivers the excellent customer service, the patients deserve, and have become accustomed to.
Lisa was awarded Practice Manager of the Year 2015 by The Association of Dental Administrators and Managers and was very proud to also win Practice Manager of the year 2016 at the prestigious Dental Awards.

In October 2016 Lisa will take the new president position, which is a real honor and reflection of her dedication and professionalism.
