For me joining the team at Coatbridge Family Dental Care was a great move! We’re like a huge family and our smiles are always genuine!!

We’re always trying to have a good time with our patients and show that dentistry really isn’t too scary. I got into dentistry when I left school – I didn’t really have a plan set out for what I wanted to do – so applied for a dental nursing course and 7 years later I’m still here and still learning new things every day! Every day is a school day as they say. I enjoy making relationships with patients, I think this is a really important thing and when someone goes from nervous to at ease in the surgery it is one of the best feelings in the world to know you’ve helped someone out. This is especially true of kids – nothing is more rewarding than a kid wanting to give you a cuddle because they aren’t scared anymore.

I love working at Coatbridge Family Dental Care as we are all equals, everyone’s ambitions are taken in to consideration and respected. I would like to progress and do more courses such as sedation nursing in the future as this is something that really sparks my interest. Outside of work I’m usually a home bird, I enjoy chilling out and binge watching tv series. But I do enjoy going on drives to new places and going out walking and exploring. If you find a pub or small restaurant in this new place with a good menu, even better! Recently I’ve been trying to learn to cook new dishes at home (the fakeaways are turning out great so far). I live with my partner Jamie so a lot of my time is spend with him.
