I began my career in dentistry 15 years ago as a dental nurse before completing my Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2016 at the Eastman Dental Hospital, London.  Creating and maintaining a healthy and happy mouth is my passion. I will form a bespoke oral hygiene routine to overcome many problems that arise to help prevent and tackle gum disease for each patient. I can help nervous patients feel at ease with a gentle approach to their care, and with an understanding that the dental setting is often daunting for some.  I also enjoy keeping fit and healthy, taking walks with my son and sausage dog, and playing netball.
