What is your favourite part of the job?
My favourite part of the job is the different people you meet in a day. I love the wide variety of my job ranging from treating people with mild gum disease to changing someone’s life by saving their teeth from extraction. I have to wear a multitude of hats from informing patients about improving their diet to making firm plans and making changes to their whole health care. It’s not just cleaning teeth!

I have been at North Hill Dental Care for just over 7 years.
What interests do you have outside of work?
Healthy eating, going to the gym and walking my cocker spaniel Hugo. Also, I’m a little bit of a mad cat lady with my 3 cats one being hairless!
