I qualified from Liverpool Dental Hospital in March 1994 and since have worked as a Hygienist. I am currently a member of the Northern Ireland branch of the British society of Dental Hygiene/Therapy. I was a chairperson for 3 years and council rep for 1 year. I found these roles very interesting and rewarding. I regularly attend lectures and courses in the interest of continuing education and keeping abreast of any changes and new techniques in dental hygiene. I have a passion for all aspects of Dental Hygiene and love achieving “the healthy mouth” for all my patients. I also enjoy meeting and treating new patients. I enjoy working as part of a team and I joined Affinity Dental Care in September 2011.
In my leisure time I enjoy playing the piano, cooking and entertaining friends and family. I always have an open house. I also enjoy socializing and trying out any new restaurants in Belfast.
I qualified in June 2011 from Dundee University as a Dental Hygiene Therapist following a three year course. I currently work in Newry, Markethill and of course Affinity Dental in Lisburn. I began working at the practice in November 2011 and I thoroughly enjoy being part of the team. My job allows me to meet new people, and I strive to improve the oral health of all my patients.
In August 2011 I got married, and my husband and I are currently undertaking the building of our new home. In my spare time I enjoy baking breads and cakes, trying out new recipes and sharing them with my friends and family, and I must say, the team at Affinity culinary delights. I also enjoy long walks in the countryside with our dogs Millie and Milo.
