I gained my National Certificate for Dental Nurses in 1975, and was among the first Dental Nurses to be accepted to follow the Oral Health Educator’s course in 1977. I have worked in general practice since then savouring some time to have my three children during this period.
I came to Whiteley Dental Practice in 1999 after meeting Jenny and Ian in a previous local practice. I completed the Higher BTEC in Dental Practice Management, and now enjoy the challenge of day to day practice.
