After graduating in 1994, I completed my Vocational Training in Swansea. Being newly qualified I found the coaching and mentoring elements of the VT/Principal relationship invaluable.
I progressed from Associate dentist to becoming a Principal dentist within a year and now have more than 20 years experience managing a busy three-surgery NHS/Private practice based in the West Midlands.
During my time as a Principal, I have assisted new graduates in the Vocational Training Scheme and also recruited Associate dentists on completion of foundation training.
I’ve gained a great deal of experience as a clinician and leader of a team. Having completed the PG Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring, I am able to combine my experience with the coaching and mentoring skills to provide support to colleagues within the dental profession.
In addition, I have had first hand experience of the GDC Fitness to Practice process and so can offer invaluable insight and understanding of both the personal and professional challenges involved.
Dentistry can be a challenging profession and occasions arise where professionals may be in a situation where they would benefit from coaching and mentoring.
