I graduated in 2013 from Portsmouth Dental Academy as a dental hygiene therapist. I worked on placement in Havant while i was training where i treated patients with learning difficulties, which was challenging but really rewarding. Since graduating I have worked in private practice for 3 years on the island. Along with working in practice i have also visited primary schools across the island teaching oral hygiene instruction and healthy eating to children. Before going to university I worked as a dental nurse for 5 years. In the future i would like to learn about facial prosthetics.
