I have been a dental nurse since 2011 and gained my Diploma in Dental Nursing in 2013.
I have always been keen to learn so I went on to gain my Certificate in Radiography in 2014 and Certificate in Oral Health Education in 2016. All 3 of these qualifications were completed through Dental Nurse Training that I am now tutoring for.
After really enjoying all of the courses I trained in I decided I wanted to become a tutor, I studied for the Award in Further Education & Training in 2017 and was awarded my certificate for this.
Once I had my teaching certificate my main interest was in educating trainee dental nurses, I was lucky enough to join the training centre straight away to tutor on the diploma course alongside a long standing tutor.
Since January 2020 I have become the primary diploma tutor. I am enjoying this role very much, since I started work for dental nurse training in 2017 I am happy to say I have a 100% pass rate. I take pride in teaching and it’s a great sense of achievement when you get all of your students through a difficult course like the diploma in dental nursing. I give students and the practices they work for my full support throughout the course and I feel this reflects in the centres pass rate.
I also really enjoy still practicing as a dental nurse two days a week in a busy NHS/Private mixed general dental practice, I like assisting for all treatments and find the variety helps to keep me enthusiastic.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and young son. I also enjoy reading and socialising with friends.
