BDS Bristol 1981, Dip Con Sed 2001
GDC registration no.56256
I qualified with honours from Bristol University in 1981 and moved to the North East where, apart from 3 years in Canada I have spent all my working life.
I have worked in many practices across the region before setting up my own practice in 2003.
My aim has always been to empower my patients to achieve and maintain their oral health so that less intervention is required. Because of this I chose to leave the NHS in 2008 when I felt it became a target driven system and stopped being patient centred.
My expertise is in treating nervous patients and I gained my diploma in conscious Sedation in 2001. I also undertook a course in Advanced Restorative care in 2008.
I maintain my enthusiasm for the job and love the chance to help people get the smile they want.
Outside of work I enjoy visits to National Trust properties, watching sport and going to see live music at the Sage.

ILM Level 5 Certificate in Dental Practice Management
I have worked in Dentistry for the past twenty years; I am the manager of the practice as well as a qualified dental and sedation nurse.
I have worked with Ann for seventeen years now and was instrumental in taking the practice through a crucial transitional period when we moved away from the NHS in 2008.
I am responsible for the day to day running of the practice and ensuring we meet the highest of quality and care for our patients. I love the challenge of my job; no two days are the same!
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, D.I.Y, socialising with friends and family and walking with my naughty Jack Russell Sid.
I look forward to meeting you soon!

Receptionist & Administrator
I have worked in Dentistry as a Dental Nurse and receptionist since i was seventeen. My Dad said i wouldn't last a week! How wrong he was!
I have had time in retail the past ten years, where customer service was priority.
I am thrilled to be back in Dentistry and working in reception with a wonderful team.
My life away from work revolves around my two border terrerists, Murphy and Pipin, these two keep me on my toes! Pip is a handful!
I look forward to seeing you and welcoming you to the practice.
