I feel privileged to join the Savernake Dental Practice and am looking forward to commencing as a dentist within such a talented and enthusiastic team.
I graduated with Commendation from Glasgow Dental Hospital and School in 1984 and then enjoyed five years training within several dental hospital environments, improving my skills in restorative dentistry and oral surgery. This culminated in being awarded the Fellowship in Dental Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. From this point, I moved into general dental practice and, after several associateships, in 1992 I became a practice owner and Principal of a dental practice in Chippenham.
I continued in that role for the next 26 years, until I decided last year that the time had come to step away from the business side of dentistry and I sold my share of the practice to my partner. Now, following a short sabbatical, I am keen to practice my profession again and use my skills to help others. I especially enjoy meeting new patients, helping them to achieve dental health and then building a lasting relationship over the subsequent years. Dentistry has undergone many changes in the technologies available and in cross infection control, but I still believe that attention to detail and the provision of excellence are important in providing patients with the best possible experience.
I have been Secretary of our local British Dental Association branch where I organised the programme of postgraduate lectures and, by attending many postgraduate courses on wide range of subjects, I have kept myself up to date with new advances in techniques and materials.
I live in Chippenham with my husband and 2 student sons and look forward to enjoying the beautiful drive over the Marlborough Downs each day.
