Trainee dental nurse
I am delighted to be part of the Porter Brook Dental centre team. We are a dedicated team and work hard together to ensure our patients have the best treatments available. I have been working as a dental nurse for over 3 years and started my career as a trainee dental nurse right here - at Porter Brook Dental. I have a vast knowledge of the different types of treatments, but I especially enjoy assisting for surgical procedures, such as implant placement and bone grafting, periodontal gum treatments and assisting alongside the specialist.
In my spare time, I like to socialise with my family and friends.
