'When I opened the practice in 2000, my vision was to provide unparalleled patient care and state-of-the-art dentistry in a relaxed, relatively informal way. That's what we're doing – and that's what our patients like! They know they're treated as individuals, not 'dental cases', and that they feel confident and secure. Their loyalty proves it: some still come to see me even though they've left the area, or even the country.
'My personal focus is on general dentistry – family dentistry – with a particular interest in cosmetic treatments, such as tooth whitening, white fillings, veneers, crowns and bridgework.
'And getting my work/life balance right is really important to me. So, since my children were born – my beautiful son Matthew in 2003, and the gorgeous Hannah in 2005 – I work part-time. It's a great arrangement: I'm still dedicated to the practice and I enjoy time during the week with my children.'
