I qualified as a dental surgeon in 2007 from Liverpool University after previously completing a BSC in medical science from Manchester a post graduate certificate in education from edge Hill University.
At dental school I was awarded the prosthetics prize and the Malcolm foster medical for the best final year elective project which looked at water sterilisation in dental units.
Completed my VT at Bryn street dental clinic and spent a brief time at a surgery in Warrington before returning to Bryn Street.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry especially periodontal and I have recently started a master’s degree in periodontology at UCLAN University in order to provide many complex periodontal treatments.
I have also completed a course in fast brace technology in order to provide patients with a quick orthodontic solution to straighten teeth.
Away from dentistry, I live with my husband (who is also a dentist) and my two daughters, Heidi (3) and daisy (2 months). I rarely get any spare time at the minute but if I do then I enjoy eating out and a bit of retail therapy.
