I have worked at Cotswold Orthodontics as a dental nurse and receptionist for almost 7 years now. I am part of a great team and we all work really hard to provide the best care we can. I hope to continue to develop my knowledge in orthodontics- keeping up to date with new technologies and the appliances we offer and continually improving patient care.

I joined Cotswold Orthodontics in February 2013 as I wanted to see a different side of dentistry having working in general practice for 10 years. I enjoy my varied role, my favourite part of the job is meeting new patients and going through their orthodontic journey with each of them by assisting with each appointment. It is lovely to see patients are pleased with the end result.

I joined Cotswold Orthodontics in February 2017, after working in general dentistry for four years. During my time as a general dental nurse, I was going through my own orthodontic treatment which sparked a big interest in orthodontics for me. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills and it is a pleasure working with such a friendly and dedicated team.

I joined Cotswold Orthodontics in December 2012 as a Treatment Coordinator. Since then I have qualified as an Oral Health Educator which has helped me give good accurate advice to our patients. The best part of the job is being able to help our patients understand there forthcoming orthodontic treatment and being able to give advice when needed. It’s great to know you have helped someone. In the future I hope to gain more knowledge through ongoing courses to help patients further.

I worked at Cotswold Orthodontics as Practice Manager from when we first opened in June 2004. I really enjoy the dynamics of working in a small dedicated team of professionals. Having previously worked in a variety of managerial roles, within a major international company it gives a lot of job satisfaction to feel closer to the customer and be an integral part of the service that we provide our patients.
