Wishing you all a warm welcome to BDC, I have been working here as a dental associate for 4 years now.  I thoroughly enjoy my job and love working in the Rugby area. I moved from Essex to the Midlands for my dental training at Birmingham dental hospital and since then have worked in a few other practices. Since graduating in 2012 I have attended various other courses to add further skills and procedures to my dental portfolio.

I am here to help you with all aspects of your dental health, I particularly enjoy cosmetic smile make overs and work closely with the laboratory to fabricate a perfect result each time. 

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar and have recently taken up tennis which is going well so far. I recently got married last year so married life keeps me busy also!

I pride myself on my professionalism and empathy, I am a good listener and take the time to listen to any concerns/fears you may have.  I can guide you in terms of treatment but ultimately it is YOUR choice.  I work efficiently but gently and am always willing to go the extra mile to make your experience at BDC as pleasant as possible! Hope to see you soon.
