I am a dentist who has experience in the primary care sector, working in mainly mixed NHS/private practices within busy teams and undertaking urgent care services. My experience ranges from working within the central operations team of a dental group undertaking managerial roles, as an associate dentist, clinical directorship, and as a practice owner.
My roles as the Clinical Director for a dental group and a practice owner has allowed me to gain experience in various regions of the UK, working with a number of different stakeholders. This has been invaluable in bringing across shared learning and improving procedures. As part of this role, I am also in the position to help and support practitioners through Foundation Training, PLVE training and both NHS and GDC imposed conditions. I work closely with dentists through these processes and I apply a holistic approach.
I am committed towards continued development and learning in all aspects. I have undertaken a postgraduate certificate in coaching and mentoring, as well as undertaking a HEE Deanery course in mentoring and Mental Health Champion training.
I am an adaptable and responsible dental practitioner with extensive clinical and managerial experience in the dental sector. My previous experience has allowed me to cultivate great organisational and communication skills. Coming from a diverse background, living in multiple countries, I have further developed a keen sensitivity to people from a range of backgrounds. I am an empathetic and friendly individual and look forward to supporting my peers in whatever manner I can.
