The Team

Linda Wood - Business Manager

julieI 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.

I Joined the team at Ash Villa in April 2008 as a trainee Dental Nurse and I have continuously developed my career, becoming an Oral Health Educator (OHE) in 2013 and  Clinical Practice Manager in August 2014. I qualified in dental radiography in July 2015 allowing me to take dental X-rays. In 2016 I completed the fluoride application course. I am always available to answer any questions you may have about your proposed treatment in my role as Treatment Co-ordinator. I can discuss symptoms, diagnosis, prevention and the best ways of continuing with your oral health regime at home to benefit you or your children's oral health long term. I am also qualified in taking dental impressions for many treatments we offer such as whitening, denture repairs, mouth guards etc and I also offer support to our reception team.

In my spare time I love nothing more than walking my 2 dogs Lucy and Lola and spending time with my little boy.
