About Me

GDC Number:

 Business Consultant

I have been in the Dental Industry for 42 starting my career as a Dental Nurse. I have had the pleasure of working in NHS, Private, Community and Hospital Service where I was Senior Nurse in the Oral and Maxill-Facial Dept.

I decided to move in to Dental Sales and worked for Straumann as an Implantology Co-ordinator for two years before taking on a new role to the UK - Treatment Co-ordinator in a busy Orthodontic Specialist practice. I grew the role and the business and spent some years working in Orthodontics.

12 years ago, I made the move to Philips Oral Healthcare and spent the last 6 years as Professional Educator. During this time I also qualified as a Level 3 Mentor at Surrey University. I was made redundant by Philips last year and have now started my own training and consultancy business aimed primarily for dental nurses. Last year, I also re-took my Dental Nurses Diploma and am GDC Registered.

In 2015 ,  I qualified as a dental nurse tutor/assessor and work for Smart Dental Care in Manchester
