Practice Manager GDC Reg No: 112860
I have been in dentistry since 1988, where I started for an independent as a Trainee Dental Nurse, which I gained my qualification in 1991. Throughout my time with the practice I progressed from Dental Nurse/Receptionist to Practice Manager including overseeing 3 practices owned by the Principal.
In 2000 our practice became part of Bupa Dental Care, which expanded my role as a Practice Manager. During this time I have been a dual site practice manager which gave me the opportunity to be accountable for two practice teams which was very rewarding working with two different teams of professionals. In 2012 I received Oasis Dental Care’s Practice Manager of the Year Award which I am very proud of, my certificate takes pride of place in my office.
More recently I have moved into a larger site in Darlington, which has been very challenging and rewarding and I am continually striving to improve in every way. I consider myself very privileged to work alongside great professionals making lifelong friends along the way.
Outside of work I have lovely family which I cherish, and I enjoy spending time with my now teenage daughters – mainly shopping. I have taken part in The Great North Run in 2012 for Breast Cancer Care which affected a member of my family at the time, it was an amazing honour and achievement to be a part of with so many incredible people all running for different causes close to their heart. I also enjoy family holidays, socialising and eating out with great company.
