Why Dentistry?
I played a lot of rugby growing up and had to make regular visits to the dentist to get my teeth put back together! I liked the idea of having the skills to do that, especially to fix smiles and help people feel better about themselves. I also had a passion for science and working with my hands. Dentistry combines all those things.
What is your favourite part of dentistry?
I like the interaction with patients from start to finish. Unlike other areas of healthcare, in dentistry I can work with a patient from start to finish to achieve what they want. It is wonderful when you can take an anxious patient through the treatment process and get a great result.
What has been your proudest moment?
I have a patient who looks after her teeth, but through a combination of factors they are failing. This week she admitted how low her confidence is with her teeth and how upset it is making her. We discussed the options with her and communicated a clear plan of how we can fix her smile. Already, before treatment has even started, her confidence has increased. This is what makes the job worth doing.
What do you do outside work?
I love having hobbies (I’ll try anything once!), but as I have two young children I don’t get much chance. When I do have time, I enjoy anything related to motorbikes and I also try to keep fit. My rugby days are sadly over, much to the relief of my face!

Why dentistry?

When I was a teenager, I always thought that I would end up being a clinical psychologist or performing artist. I finally settled on dentistry after meeting a dentist on a careers day who had a good work – life balance and so I thought it was a wise move. Somewhere in my second year of dental school I absolutely fell in love with the craft of dentistry and as a result, I wouldn’t change what I do for the world! Now I am studying for my masters in King’s college London.

What do you love about dentistry?

My passion is restorative dentistry – creating and refreshing smiles. It is what I fell in love with at dental school and what I’m doing my masters in. There is so much art involved in creating a smile and I love watching it come to life one piece at a time. Smiles change lives and I have seen that happen time and time again.

In addition to this, I really enjoy working with anxious patients to help them cope with receiving basic and, over time, elective care. I feel my personal interest in psychology, and in particular the area of mental health, has helped me develop a set of skills that work really well for my patients.

What do you do outside of work?

Apart from studying for my masters, I enjoy cooking, eating with friends, playing my piano, running (when it’s not too wet and not too cold!) and travelling the world. I also play and sing as part of the Freedom Church Chester band once a month.
