What else i can tell you about me
I love my job (honestly!) and look forward to every day. I particularly enjoy meeting people at work. Between initial consultations and the completion of treatment programmes, I manage to establish trust-based relationships with many of my patients (of all ages). In particular, though, I enjoy working with a team that is like a second family to me – most of the staff members have been with us for 10 years, and many have been around for longer than that.
I am very inquisitive, with a thirst for knowledge and a passion for creativity that helps me devise individual treatment plans. I find this very rewarding. I am a stickler for detail with great persistence when drilling my way into a new subject – and yes, that’s dental humour!
When I’m not busy with orthodontics, teeth and braces, I am at home with the family. I spend my free time doing yoga (a wonderful way to counterbalance work!), singing (I am putting together a set list with a jazz band just now), reading (I belong to a book club) and occasionally writing.
