– I feel very fortunate to have chosen the field of orthodontics as my career. After qualifying as a dentist I worked in various branches of dentistry including surgery, restorative, periodontal and paediatrics. With an eye for beauty and the desire to help people look and feel as good as possible I decided to specialise in Orthodontics and have never looked back.
I have been on the Specialist Register in Orthodontics of the General Dental Council since it began in 2000 and have worked in hospital and specialist practice ever since. Gaining wide experience and skill in all orthodontic techniques naturally I have discovered a few favourite state of the art systems! These include Damon (for its comfort and excellent results) and more recently Incognito ( precision engineered custom designed lingual fixed braces). Incognito braces are exciting because they are bonded to the inner surface of your teeth where they are hidden from view and straighten your teeth in secret! They work 24 hours a day and this is one of their advantages over clear aligner systems. Both Damon and Incognito are very popular with my patients. Clarity Advanced brackets have beautiful aesthetics and blend in with your teeth so are another favourite choice.
Growth modification treatments encourage the lower jaw to grow in a favourable direction – brilliant if you have a set back lower jaw and you are still growing. They help produce a good facial profile and are often used with fixed appliances to align upper and lower teeth so bone structure and dental alignment are enhanced.
I always aim to produce the best possible facial appearance as well as beautifully aligned teeth. My philosophy is ”face driven orthodontics” and my patients love the results we achieve together. By continually attending courses and conferences I ensure my knowledge and skills are always growing . I am in the final year of the MSc in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at University of Manchester having achieved the level of Diploma after two years of study.
Nothing beats the confidence a lovely smile and healthy mouth bestow and I am thrilled to be able to offer orthodontic treatments to patients of all ages and work together with my colleagues in the wonderful atmosphere of Sparkle Dental Boutique.
Away from work am a keen tennis player and zen yoga practitioner who is also trying to be a more accomplished gardener.
