I studied Medical Microbiology at the University of Surrey, thereafter I went to The Royal London, Queen Mary and Westfield and studied Dental Hygiene and Dental Therapy. I have completed the first year of a distance Maters in Public Health at the University of Manchester. I have a passion for science and that is why I endeavour to utilise my microbiology following my qualification as a dental hygienist. Following qualification, I had the privilege of working as a research dental hygienist, which enhanced my knowledge of best practice and good clinical governance, and enabled me to utilise both microbiology and dental skills.
I am highly enthusiastic and I have been in the dental industry for over twenty years and have been a qualified Dental Hygienist/Dental Therapist for 13 years this year. I am currently the chairperson for BSDHT Thames Valley Regional Group and recently joined the publications committee. I am eager to enhance and develop my scientific skills that will stretch my analytical abilities. I have acquired leadership skills and strategic planning.
Another passion I have apart from dentistry is volunteering. I have been on many dental outreach missions and have coordinated and lead various teams to Zimbabwe.
