Excellent care requires excellent people
Every person in our Practice is essential to your care so we endeavour to recruit, train and retain the best people. Everyone who joins us understands our expectations and receives regular training and personal development to ensure we all share the same ethos of putting our patients at the heart of everything we do.
By providing a caring environment for everyone, we engender loyalty. As the saying goes – we don’t expect loyalty, we earn it. Our practice is part of Rodericks Dental, a company with over 65 practices across the country. We are different because our company is run by dentists – for patients.
I joined North Petherton Dental Surgery in September 2016 – I grew up in a small village at the foot of the Quantock hills so it feels like coming home!
I graduated from the University of Bristol; a highlight of my dental career to date was treating patients in an emergency clinic in the Philippines for my elective.
Outside of the practice you’ll find me on the hockey pitch for Taunton Vale ladies or indulging in my love of drawing.
I graduated from Bristol University with a BDS in 2012 and have worked in general dental practice ever since. I enjoy the wide variety that general dentistry offers and particularly helping nervous patients feel relaxed and comfortable when receiving treatment. In my spare time I play football twice a week as well as caving over the Mendips.
