GDC Number

I’ve been in Dentistry since 2012, working as a Dental Nurse before qualifying as a Dental Hygienist at the University of Bristol, where I received the GSK prize for Excellent Ability in my Research Project. I’m passionate about helping patients to improve their oral health in a way that is practical and positive. I’ve got a special interest in implants after working as an implant nurse and carrying out my university research project in Dental Hygienists’ experiences of treating patients with implants.

In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog, spending time with family and friends and going to the theatre and cinema. My favourite films are the Lord of the Rings trilogy and my favourite musical is Mamma Mia. I’m an avid tea drinker (without sugar of course!) and I also take part in the motor sport Drag Racing, driving a red Ford Mustang!
