    I qualified from Newcastle University in 1992 & have stayed in the North-East ever since. I have worked in several dental practices since qualifying & enjoy working in general dental practice, as I get to treat patients of all ages & from all backgrounds.No two days are the same & that's what I love about my profession.

I job share with Lianne who is also a Lead Receptionist, we make a good team, working together.
