Changes to the Hygienist Team16th October 2020
We are pleased to welcome our two new members of staff to the dental hygienist team. Rebecca and Amy will be filling the shoes of Louise and Miriam who left the practice.
Rebecca is a forward thinking hygienist with a diverse background in dentistry.
She started her career as a dental nurse in 2008 and worked alongside a specialist orthodontist before venturing into practice management and then dental hygiene studying at the University of Essex. Rebecca qualified with an overall distinction in Oral Health Sciences in 2018.
Rebecca has a special interest in periodontal disease and prevention. Alongside dental hygiene, she is also trained in facial aesthetics and tooth whitening.
Outside of the practice Rebecca writes education content and dental articles for other dental professionals and platforms.
In her spare time Rebecca enjoys travelling, CrossFit and is a big foodie with a love for Michelin star restaurants.
Amy started out in Dentistry in 2002 as a Dental Nurse before eventually graduating from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2009 with a BSc in Dental Hygiene and Therapy. Amy enjoys her varied role as a Dental Therapist and is always striving to expand her knowledge and skills with further training in order to always provide our patients with up to date treatment options.
Amy has a passion for helping patients with Periodontal Disease. Amy’s enthusiasm and skill in treating periodontal disease has allowed her to work within several specialist departments both in private practice and the Birmingham Dental Hospital. Amy is always the first to tell patients that her main role in dentistry is to give them the information, tools and techniques to allow them to achieve and maintain healthier mouths for the rest of their lives.
Amy has a great deal of experience treating nervous and dental phobic patients and will always provide treatment at your pace to ensure your comfort and satisfaction in achieving the smile you want!
Both our new team members are excited to get started and meet our patients. If you would like to book a hygienist appointment please call 01926 422509.
