I am a confident, passionate and caring clinician. My patients describe me as gentle and thorough; I love to educate and motivate my patients in order to improve their oral health. I am skilled in treating nervous patients and making them feel more at ease as I am a nervous patient myself so understand how this feels.

I take a holistic approach when treating my patients; I believe that education is key in prevention of gum disease and dental decay.

I have an eye for detail and am always striving for perfection in everything I do. I love and strive to see improvement in the patient’s oral hygiene, confidence and quality of life.

When I am not at work, I like to push myself so each week I go rock climbing and attend a woodwork class
