Helen grew up in the London area and studied dentistry at Guy’s Hospital. She now lives in the Taunton area with her husband Andy, and 3 children Rosie, Ben and James. She cycles into work and manages a couple of runs a week when she can squeeze this in.
She started her postgraduate training in 1996 in Norwich and King’s Lynn and undertook an MSc at Guy’s Hospital. She then went on to complete her Consultant training in Bristol and Bath in 2002. She was appointed as a Consultant in Epping and the Royal London Hospital in 2003 and then subsequently moved to Taunton in 2006 to take up a Consultant post there. She worked at Musgrove Park Hospital and Yeovil District Hospital treating NHS patients who required surgery to their jaws, patients with congenitally missing teeth and those that required surgery to their teeth up until 2021 when she decided to dedicate her time to Confident Orthodontics. She is still involved with the care of patients who require jaw surgery at Musgrove Park Hospital.
In 2013 Helen helped to set up Confident Orthodontics to provide a high quality private orthodontic clinic. This has been an extremely exciting experience and she feels that she has been able to develop her aesthetic skills within this organisation.
Helen thoroughly enjoys seeing the changes that happen to her patients as they progress through treatment. They initially start off their treatment dissatisfied with their smiles and don’t even want to smile for their initial photos and as the changes start to happen and they see their smiles change, their self-confidence increases. When we complete treatment, they want to smile at everyone and every shop window.
Orthodontics is a great specialty to work in. Helen particularly enjoys working with the Invisalign system, which is a highly aesthetic system and because of this are very popular with adult patients who are particularly concerned about the aesthetics of appliances during treatment.
