Our nursing and support staff are a vital part of all aspects of the dental care we provide. This expanding team includes both qualified and trainee dental nurses who keep the practice running smoothly as well as offering you personalised dental care.
I joined Granta Dental in 2012 as a receptionist; I quickly became intrigued as to what was happening in the surgeries, so I trained to become a dental nurse. I loved learning about different treatments and nursing for the variety of procedures we offer.
After a spell as a Dental Nurse, I now oversee the running of reception, and as treatment co-ordinator discuss treatment options with patients in a comfortable, relaxed setting. I aim to understand your unique dental needs and goals, and am here to support you throughout your treatment, answering any questions you may have along the way.
In my spare time I like taking long walks with my partner and our gorgeous Cockapoo Rudy. I also enjoy running and try to take part in charity races throughout the year where I can
I started working at Granta Dental in the year 2000, as a trainee dental nurse. Since then I have qualified as a Dental Nurse, and added further qualifications in radiography and sedation.
I am confident and knowledgeable in most areas of dentistry and have a very caring and approachable nature. I take a particular interest in looking after nervous and anxious patients, to achieve optimal oral health.
As well as general dental nursing, I also work with the orthodontist and have a keen interest in myofunctional orthodontics for children.
At home, I have a partner, three small children ages 10,8 and 2 and a Cockapoo which keep me very busy.
As my name suggests, I am from Latvia, but once I left school I wanted to gain new experiences, learn a new language, and live in different country – I chose England as I already had friends here, and I loved Cambridge when I visited.
I began to train as a Dental Nurse, and once the training commenced, I found myself enjoying the course and dentistry itself, especially helping patients maintain their oral health. Once qualified, I would like to develop my skills further with a future goal of becoming a Hygienist/Therapist.
In my spare time, I love travelling, being involved in sport and photography.
I am fairly new to the practice beginning my journey here at Granta Dental in 2018.
I started training to become a dental nurse in 2013, qualifying in 2015, and have loved every moment of it!
I am interested in expanding my knowledge and learning new skills with the aim of becoming a Hygienist/Therapist in the future.
Outside of work I enjoy socialising and spending time with family and friends, exploring new places and long walks with my partner and our French Bulldog Pepper.
I have been working in dentistry for 16years. Over this time, I have gained many qualifications and experience including Sedation, Radiography, Implants, Invisalign, Facial Aesthetics, Impression Taking, Photography, Teaching and assessing and Practice Management.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but most of all helping train and help Trainee Dental Nurses gain their Level 3 Dental Nursing qualification.
We also have links with health professionals in other disciplines who can support your dental treatment. In addition to those therapists who work within Granta Health, we work closely with a number of therapists across the UK.
