''I love getting to know the people I care for so I can guide and support them in their treatment choices. The ability to build rapport and relationships of trust is something I cherish as a practitioner.

Helping children, nervous patients, those with additional requirements and older patients to access the dentistry they need and deserve is an area of my job that gives me huge satisfaction.

I work hard with my team to provide education, alongside preventative and ‘minimally invasive’ dentistry whenever it is appropriate, and try to continually develop as a practitioner by keeping up to date with current best practices so I can feel sure I’m giving my patients the best care of which I am capable.'
