I am the Business Manager here at Ash Villa Dental Practice. I joined the team in February 2003 having 10 years previous experience as a qualified dental nurse. I have completed an NVQ level 3 in Customer Service and a Btec advanced apprenticeship in Business Administration. Recently, I completed a course in Dental Photography and also a certificate in First Aid for Babies and Children.
I try to make all our patient's visits to the practice a comfortable and enjoyable experience. I am here to give as much advice and help as possible.
Away from the practice I enjoy spending time with my family and young grandchildren, and walking my little dog Oscar.
