Before qualifying as a Dental Hygienist and Therapist in 2008 I was a Dental Nurse for around 13 years. I have worked in a range of different environments, including specialist practice, and I am particularly interested in helping patients with advanced gum disease – this affects the supporting structures of the tooth so can result in tooth loss if not properly managed.
I love animals, and I have two cats at home who take up a lot of my time – especially when one goes AWOL for two days as he did recently. My other hobby is healthy eating. I spend a lot of time cooking mainly vegetarian and vegan food. It is fascinating finding out new things about food and its effect on general health. I try to keep fit and active – I enjoy Salsa dancing and have recently started Aeriel Silk Classes (google it – it’s not about how to wash delicate fabrics).
