I knew I didn’t want to have an office job so I decided on a career in dentistry as it would allow me to be in a caring profession whilst developing a wide range of skills. It’s a cliché, but every day is different! I work here on Saturday mornings, and the rest of my week is split between community dental services and the dental hospital. I get to see a wide range of patients such as those who have dental phobias, special needs and are medically compromised. I am also qualified in administering inhalation sedation.
I grew up near Manchester but have developed a soft spot for Birmingham over the years. I still love visiting up North to see family and spend time in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District. When I’m not at work you’ll probably find me on a tennis court – whether it be sunshine, wind, rain and even snow on occasion! I also enjoy travelling and seeing new places around the UK and when I get a chance I like to venture further afield; my latest trip was to Japan.
